Surnames: Tucker, Challenger, Dagger
Hoping to make connection with descendants of Thomas Tucker and Jane Challenger who married 1762 in Midsomer Norton, and lived in Clutton and nearby villages. I have a lot of names, but no birth or parentage for Thomas as yet.Thomas and Jane had 7 sons: William, Thomas, Elisha/Elijah, Aaron, Moses, David and Henry.

My interest is Challenger family. Sarah was my great grandmother, born in Wellow, Somerset. Her father was Charles Challenger, born in Camerton Somerset.
Charles was a miner, moved up to Ebbw Vale in Wales where he had one daughter born. Moved back to Wellow Somerset where my great grandmother was born. The family then moved to Co. Durham in the north of england where the rest of children were born. Sarah married my great grandfather Richard Marr who was also a miner

Interesting, but I'm afraid I don't know this family. I think my Challengers originated in Midsomer Norton.
I'm hoping to start a Challenger mailing list - will let you know when it's ready.

I have a Great great grandfather Benjamin Challenger who lived in Somerset. His son was and grandson were also Benjamin Challenger. Maybe we're related.

Sorry no knowledge of any Tuckers but I'm interested in the Challenger family in the Clutton area. My Great great grandfather Benjamin Challenger and his son and grandson (both Benjamin Challenger) liked there late 1700's through to mid 1800's

My father, Redvers Challenger was born in Varteg, Monmouthshire. His father, Benjamin was born in Garndiffaith, Mon. I believe the family moved from Midsomer Norton, but I don't know when. My grandfather's Mum and Dad were Elizabeth Waters and Sidney Challenger.

Hi Mike, i think you are definitely in the right area. Benjamin was quite a popular name for the challengers in NW Somerset and I know some lines did move into Monmouthshire. I will have a look through my files when I get back from holiday nexty week. Meanwhile you may like to subscribe to the Challenger mailing list at Rootsweb (click on the Mailing Lists tab above and go to Surnames - Challenger). You may find a relative or two subscribed to the list - you can also search the archives of the list. Good luck!
