I would be interested to hear from anyone who has traced their origins back to John Couchman, who was born in about 1772 although I don't know where, or other members of his family. John spent much of his life in the Bristol/Chepstow area, was married to Sarah Tarrant at Tidenham, Gloucestershire on 23 Dec 1798 and burried in Chepstow (age 62)in May 1834. His widow Sarah was living, aged 70, at 16 Mary Street, Shoreditch, London at the time of the 1851 census.
I am writing a book, which revolves around their daughter Sarah (b. circa 1811)- and would be interested to hear from any descendants who have not yet been in touch. www.michaelgreening.com
