Dear Ros, it's too early to say if John connects into my clan family tree. I suggest you track down John's baptism and see what that tells us. It shouldn't be too difficult to find. The Wrexham or Chester record offices probably hold the registers for Bersham churches. Can you let me know the names, dates and places for your descent, please? You can contact me direct via firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone me on 0161 428 4054, if you prefer. I have 29,000 Brindleys on my database, so once I have some facts I can soon check for connections. Regards, Gordon.
