Thanks very much for that.
I've just managed to collect a lot of information on my Somerset Stooke
family -- they were from Ashton in Devon, and settled at Chaffcombe in
Somerset in about 1810. By the end of the century most of them were spelling
the sname "Stooks".
I've also noticed a Stooke family at Halse in Somerset, but haven't really
investigated them -- any connections with yours?
