      Stow on the Wold, Gloucestershire for the John James c.1796 wife Elizabeth but he's not a carpenter, he's a clerk to Attorney. His widowed father is also there called Richard and ag.lab/land drainer

              Thank you so much i just have to lay out all the facts and try and decide if they do belong to my oh James family. was just not expecting them to possibly be from Gloustershire as a long way from Devon. Might be asking for opinions later.
