Tay Family of Somerset
This tree has been completely revised due to the release of the parish records of Somerset online
and the opportunity to search them thoroughly for a more likely source of the Tay family than previously found.
The discovery of a baptism record for Hannah Tay in 1789 in Somerset
together with a brother James, who was a witness to her marriage, has
added certainty to the present tree being an accurate line of descent from Christopher Tay downwards.
The Church of St Peter at Camerton, Somerset plays a very important part in this family story.
From the index of names it is clear that most members were baptised or buried there.
Other local towns mentioned in this genealogy are associated with the parish, as
"The parish is part of the benefice of Timsbury with Priston, Camerton and Dunkerton within the deanery of Midsomer Norton." (ref Wikipedia)
