I am currently completing the indexing of Bapt 1748 ? 1796, Mrge 1748 ?
1768, and Burial 1748 ? 1796; for Pembroke St Michael and have come across
3 entries to two different families, which make reference to being interred
in quote the Store House unquote,
e.g. I quote in full, ?Ebenezer Bagshaw was interred in the Store house
the 27th of Sept 1770?.
The obvious question is, ?Does anyone have any idea what the Store House
was in relation to a Church Burial ??
From my Wills Index of all names and places mentioned in wills proven in
Pembroke St Mary & St Michael for this period there is no mention of the
Bagshaws or the other family known to have a member buried in ?The Store
House?, however this indexing is not yet totally completed around this period,
so something else may still come to light.
Pembs St Michael Indexes completed to date are Baptisms 1748 ? 1839, Mrge
1748-1768, Burial 1748-1812, if anyone needs a look up.
On a separate church theme I attended the Xmas Eve midnight service at Pembroke
St Mary?s and in a quiet moment contemplated just how many of my wifes ancestors,
at least since the English Civil War, must also have sat (or stood) close
by, to where, I was now seated, fair sent a shiver down the spine.
Happy New year to All
