      Hi Steve
      The Stookes at Halse in Somerset are "my" Stookes - they are also listed at Milverton - which is the next village over.
      and I have just discovered another 20 Stookes connected with Henry (who we thought only had 2 children but actually had 5).....

      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?
