William Stone, eldest son of William Stone and Mary Thorne and thus oldest brother of my 2x great grandfather, Henry Stone, was baptised at St Peter's ChurchLangford Budville on 1 Apr 1821. William (listed as being 28), an agricultural labourer, in 1851, is living (and therefore presumably working) at Whipples, Holcombe Rogus, along with his wife Anah (21). Anah could be the phonetic spelling of Anna, or I wondered if maybe it was an abbreviation of Hannah? Unfortunately, I've not [yet] been able to narrow it down to the relevant marriage. There is a potential marriage in 1850 of a Hannah Westcott, but I would need to buy the certificate to confirm. 

Whipples Farmhouse, Tracebridge, is a Grade II Listed Building. Living at Whipples also in 1851 is Henry Trimlett or Tremlett, a Dairyman, and his wife, Grace. Interestingly, they have a 5 year old daughter, also named Anah. 

So far, this is the only record I have for this couple.
