Excerpt from History of the Siderfin Family of West Somerset While turning the pages of Savage's interesting Hundred of Carhampton in Somersetshire, I came across certain records of one William Siderfin. My mother having been a Siderfin, my attention was at once aroused, and I resolved to pursue the study of the annales of the family to which he belonged. My main reason was the natural interest one must feel in his ancestors, their occupations, their services to the State or to society, their habits and manners, their prosperity or adversity. The pursuit of this subject became fascinating, and furnished a welcome relief from the routine duties and commercial engagements of a busy life. I have thought it desirable to put into a permanent form, through the printing press, the result of these researches, believing that this record may prove entertaining to those who may trace any connection, either by descent in the direct line or by the alliance of marriage, with the family of Siderfin. Moreover, the students of archaeology and local history who know the district of West Somerset may be prepared to accept the humble contribution of a novice in their craft to their gathered store of information. No pretentions to literary merit are made by the writer, and criticism should be disarmed by this admission on the part of one whose motto is "Deeds, not words." The ancestral home of the Siderfin family caxnot be determined, but Luxborough seems to provide the chief material for this memorial, in the form of parish registers, etc. In the early days Selworthy; Wootton Courtney and Minehead in the later period. And my thanks are due to Sir Maxwell Lyte, Sir C. H. Chadwyck Healey, E. T. MacDermott, Esq., Rev. F.Hancock, and other gentlemen, for permission to use extracts from their books.
