Note: The census of 1851 states that Maria was born in Bath Somerset and the GRO record states that Maria Still was born Aug 24, 1846 in Bath. Her parents are listed and William is stated to be a Law Clerk. Since we have letters from William to Ann Priscilla in Bath, it is certain that this birth entry corresponds to our family. The family was listed as living in Ivy Cottage, Widcombe, Somerset, but the baptism certificate states that their abode was in Beechen Hill. Ivy Cottage and Beechen Hill are just across the little river from the main part of Bath.

Ann PORTER, Ann Priscilla SUMMERS Still and family came on the ship Palestine in 1857, arriving at NY harbor 8 Sept 1857.

Shared note

IN the copy of a letter from Virgina Gaddis written in 1997, Virgina states:

" The name that comes forward is Ann Priscilla, daughter of Frederick SUMMERS and his bride Ann PORTER. Frederick, whose discharge paper we have, fought with Wellington in the Battle of Waterloo; he was wounded in the Napoleon campaign in Egypt and North Africa. A baby son was buried along the Nile. Frederick SUMMER'S parents disowned him for marrying Ann PORTER, (the word was that she was a bar-maid). She, Ann PORTER, attempted to interest the SUMMERS in their granddaughter after Frederick's death, but they did not relent."

Ann Priscilla SUMMERS married William Still in the London district of Holburn in 1837. They lived in there until late in the 1840s when letters indicate that she lived in Bath and then Bilston, where William was employed. William died in 1849 leaving Ann pregnant with twins. She moved to St Mary Magdalene Parish, Bermondsey on the impoverished south side of London to live with her mother Ann PORTER Colley.

Ann Pricilla SUMMERS Still was living with her mother on Grange Road on the night of 30th of March, 1851 according to the 1851 Census of England. At this time she had 6 children, the babies being 9 months old and born in Surrey, Bermondery.

Both in the 1851(English) and 1860(US) census, Ann Pricilla is listed as a dressmaker. In the 1851 census, it says she was born in Guernsey. In her obituary it says she was born in the Isle of Jersey. There are some mistakes in the 1851 Census ( the age of Priscilla is 4 and Maria is 9...should be reversed)

In the Society of Genealogists records in London, ARMY RECORDS Births, an entry "Priscilla Summers Guernsey 1812 13th regt vol 5 page 15" reasserts the family story that Ann Priscilla was born on the Isle of Guernsey while her father was in the british military.

Ann Priscilla bought her family to Indiana in 1857. She died in Warrick, Indiana in 1880 after safely transplanting her family from London to rural America.
