Vital records are historical records that are typically recorded around the actual time of the event, which means they are likely accurate.

For example, birth and marriage records include names of parents and divorce records list the names of children.
Francis Forsey's origins have yet to be established for certain. He may well have been the Francis Forsey baptised on 1st September 1766 at Winsham in Somerset, but this has yet to be proven.
Francis's first confirmed sighting is in 1788 when he married Sarah Hawkins at Winsham. They had five children together. Some of the children's baptisms describe Francis as a labourer. Sarah died in 1821, aged 51. Francis married again two years later, with his second wife being Elizabeth (known as Betty) Pye. They had a son, Samuel, in 1824.
Francis has yet to be traced after this time. Betty and Samuel appear together in the 1841 census in Winsham.
