1793 - 98/W Dingley/Inn keeper/../../Universal British Directory *

My interest is because I am in possession of the Hunt family bible.  Some writing in this bible states "Mary Hunt Ship a ground In Bridgwater" with date above April 10 1808. Mary Hunt is one of the baptisms in the front of the book and is the older sister of my great x 2 grandfather Charles Hunt. Charles Married twice and on both certificates he cites his father as James Hunt and on the second it says inn keeper. In addition in 1815 there is a mention of a James Hunt Bridgwater inn keeper in one of the papers as he was owed money by a sailor.
