F. Perrett & co.

This poster was another of Chris Perrett’s eBay finds. The winning bidder, Pierre Perrett, knew that he had ancestors who were bakers in Gloucestershire, but wasn’t sure if they included F Perrett of Cirencester or not. After he’d shared part of his family tree with us, Lynne Morris (964) was able to confirm that Francis Perrett the baker (born 1838 in Bath) was indeed a younger step-brother of Pierre’s great-great grandfather William Ellen Perrett. They were the sons of John Perrett, who remarried after the death of his first wife, Jane Maria Stockman. William Ellen married Jayne Hannah Locock and Francis married Jane Lewis. Francis is listed in Kelly’s Directory of Gloucestershire in 1889 as a baker and corn dealer.
