One of Ari’s 6x great-grandmothers was Rachael Pain. She was born in about 1758 in Warminster, Wiltshire, daughter of Thomas and Mary Pain. She was baptised on 3 May 1758.

It looks as though they had nineteen children(!) between 1776 and 1817, and by the time of the eighteenth, (daughter Mercy), the baptism record tells us that Thomas is a tiler. The record for the nineteenth (Sarah), says that he is a plasterer, and the family live in Pound Street, Warminster.

Rachael died in 1838, a few months after her husband, and was buried at the church of St Denys.
