Centenarians


I have a bit of a fascination with Centenarians.
Below is information on those people who are
reported to have attained the age of 100 years old and over, including a few from my own family tree.
There will be a Somerset bias, as that's where I've done more research.

I've included all the married ladies under their married surnames, just because more information tends to exist for them under their married surnames.
These are just my notes with references, I will add a summary on each of these individuals at some point.
