Treasure Chest Thursday - 1780 Burial Record of Ann Vaux in South Petherton, Somerset

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1780 burial record of Ann Vaux in the South Petherton, Somerset parish records:

The transcription of this Ann Vaux burial record (the second entry on the image above) is:

*  1780, June 28, Ann Vaux

The source citation for this record is:

Church of England, Parish Church of South Petherton (South Petherton, Somerset), South Petherton Parish Registers, "Burials, 1574-1849," Ann Vaux burial, 28 June 1780; accessed on FHL microfilm BRITISH 1,526,363 (accessed 6 February 2014).

This is an Original Source record, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of their names, and the marriage event.  

While the record is for "Ann" Vaux, the Vaux family genealogists state that it is for Amy (Terrell) Vaux.  

Ann (Terrell) Vaux (1708-1780) is my 6th great-grandmother.  She married James Vaux (1704-1776) in 1729.  I am descended from their son, John Vaux (1747-1806)
