Mr & Mrs Nunn

March 2003 - Note: During the early 1800s, the Groom's great grandfather, Francis Smith, was apprenticed as a cooper to John Emerson, of Bristol. A descendant Emerson married into the Gregory family of Bristol. A daughter of this marriage married into the Nunn family.

It is likely that the Nunn family group mentioned above are one and the same family; either by direct line or by cousin descent. This information gratefully received from current Gregory family: "Ethel Gregory married William Nunn, who was secretary for Lord Lonsdale. The Nunns had 2 boys, Robert (killed in the war) and Michael (died recently) and they lived somewhere in Lincolnshire."

Note 1

From p.114, "The Chronicles of Shortwood" (1916) the book by Frank Tompson Smythe (the Groom's father) - text quoted in his book from the original obituary and funeral report in the "Stroud Jounal" of February 27th 1914.

"The Rev. F.T. Smythe, pastor, conducted the service in the chapel, and the hymns "Our God, our help in ages past" and "O God of Bethel, by whose hand" were sung. Mr. Smythe, having read some passages of Scripture, said that when he heard early on Wednesday morning of Mr. Clissold's 'passing', the words of St. Paul's triumphant doxology came at once to his mind. 'I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith.' He could have uttered the same words as the end neared for him, for they were true of Mr. Clissold's career ..."
