- 1762 Joan GANDER of Bridgwater. Ref: 9

- I'm uncertain as to whether the above 4 references are for Wills or Admons or indeed whether any of the above still exist - most of the Somerset Wills and Admons were destroyed by enemy action in 1942. If they still exist they would be held at the Somerset Record Office)


Other Courts, Consistories, Peculiars etc:

- Not checked for GANDERs or GANDARs (Although the records themselves may be destroyed, apparently indexes for most still exist).
