George Clist's Family Bible
George Clist's Family Bible
Inscribed "George Clist and his dear wife Mary Clist, 1902" this massive book contains three pages of family births and deaths. After George Clist died in 1934, further entries were apparently made by his daughter Dorothy until her death in 1966. The Bible then passed into the possession of her neice Ida Dorothy Jenkins who lived in New Jersey, USA. It was this Dorothy who passed it on to Roger Clist in New Zealand.

Sidney Clist's album
Sidney Clist's album
In 1931 my grandparents Sidney and Mercy Clist left New Zealand on a 6-month trip to England. Sidney had emigrated from Shoreditch, Taunton, as a young man aged 24 in 1910 and this was their one and only trip back "home" to Sidney's parents George and Mary Clist. Sidney took his camera and compiled an album giving a record of those they visited. However, he did not label the photos very informatively, but left some clues for me to track down. This is a project waiting for more effort.

The Argentine branch
The Argentine branch
This article describes Edith Mary Clist who emigrated from Shoreditch, Taunton, to Argentina as a missionary in 1909. Not long after arrival she married another missionary, Alfred Jenkins of Bristol, whom she had known before he emigrated a couple of years earlier. Sadly, he died in 1927 leaving Edith to bring up their four young daughters Lydia, Priscilla, Dorothy and Betty. Three of the daughters married, and there are now many descendants from this branch of the family living in Argentina and in other parts of North America and Europe. After many years of lost contact, the New Zealand branch of the Clist family is once again in touch with the Argentinian branch, thanks to rediscovery of one another via the internet.

The Forge and the Ivy Cottage (under construction)
The Forge and the Ivy Cottage (under construction)
This page describes my fascination with two ancestral homes at Shoreditch, Taunton. The Forge was the cottage beside the old Smithy which was once occupied by George and Mary Clist and family, and then by Ted and Emily Rossiter once George and Mary had moved to their new house Ivy Cottage which was built a short distance down the road. Both homes are still there, having passed to new owners; also the old Smithy, but its use has been changed.
