12 Nov 2011 – Relatives Buried outside the USA November 12, 2011

When I was putting together my book on burial locations of the family, I came across some burials outside the good old US of A.  Here are a few of them

Abbey Church of Saints Peter & Paul “Bath Abbey”,Bath,Somerset,England(http//www.bathabbey.org)  I’d love to get confirmation on this.  I’ve seen them in a few books but I’m the first to admit that the info on Matthew Randall varies quite a bit from source to source.  Anyone live in Bath that can go take a look for us???

Matthew Randall …     About 1600 – Jan 16, 1639 (My 8th Great Grandfather) Matthew is the son of John Randall and Unknown BLU.  Matthew was a former Mayor of Bath.

Elizabeth Moorford Randall … About 1605 – Feb 23, 1639/40 (My 8th Great Grandmother)

Agnes Cullen Randall    … Jan 1, 1570/71 – Feb 19, 1627/28   (Matthew was married twice, to Elizabeth and Agnes. I’ve seen both Elizabeth and Agnes listed as the mother of John Randall Sr. but I tend to think it was Agnes based on the dates.)

Brookwood Cemetery, Brookwood,Surrey,England

Brookwood Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Britain and probably in Western Europe. ( http://www.brookwoodcemetery.com)
