I am researching my Ashman ancestors and would appreciate any information that you might have regarding them.

My great great great grandfather was Charles Ashman (b. England ). He was married to Mary (Gandell?) and they had a son Charles Wesley Ashman (b. England1840)and a daughter Mary Gandell(c.1838 in Wesleyan Methodist in Clandown County Somerset).

Charles Wesley married Jane Singer in 1864 in SJ Parish in Bath. On the marriage certificate of CW Ashman and Jane it states that Charles Ashman was a civil engineer and CW Ashman was a Tallow chandler. Jane Singer's dad, Alexander Garrith Singer
was a brewer in Bath. When Jane was born her father Alexander G Singer was a grocer in Bath. Charles Wesley A. and Jane Singer had 8 children :

Charles Frederick Ashman (b.Clandown, England in 1865;d.1928)
Mary Fletcher Ashman (b. Clandown, Eng1867;d.1946) sp: John (Jack) Ivy
Swanzy Morgan (b.1867;d.1917)
Arthur Percy Ashman (b.Canada 1870;d.1953)
Joe Ashman (b.Rochester, NY 1876;d.1960)
William James Ashman (b.Rochester, NY 1879;d.1964)
John Oliver (Ollie) Ashman (b.Rochester, NY 1881;d.1951)
Benjamin Alexander Ashman (b. Rochester, NY 1883;d.1954)
Edwin Gandell Ashman (b. Rochester, NY 1886;d.1957)

You mentioned that you have a database of people from the Midsomer Norton area of Somerset, which is near to Clandown.

I would be interested in seeing if that database has information related to my relatives.
