Re: Avern and cork manufacturers.

I have just been reading your posts. I recently discovered that my great grandmother Mary Avern was the daughter of Joseph Avern, a Corkcutter in Chester in the 1600s-1700s.

After the death of his wife 'Sage' in 1715, Joseph began an affair with Mary Hand around 1717 who was Francis Ellison's wife. I know this because Francis took him to court and the court papers survive today. It is an extremely interesting set of documents to get hold of and I am currently transcribing them.

I wonder whether any relatives have any information of his dealings in Aldermanbury in London? Or any details about his death?

Feel free to connect to my tree.
