Thank you Trish
Can you tell me where Puckington Do is please.
Michelle Michelle,

I have given you a literal translation of the enumerator's entry. "Do" is an abbreviation of ditto and refers to whatever is written in the column directly above. In this case, "Do" stands for Somerset.

According to Google Earth, Puckington is southeast of Taunton -- a stone's throw from Shepton Beauchamp. Aller looks to be a few miles north of both Puckington and Shepton Beauchamp.

HTH,
Trish
