Hi group it has been awhile since I have been here, but I have something wonderful to share with everyone. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.
I am on the Derbyshire mailing list and there is a very nice man there named Michael Spencer who looks for old wills. Well I asked him he he would look up the Cantrell / Cantrill family name and he hit a gold mine.

The CANTRELL surname is sometimes CANTRILL. Whatever way they spelt it I hope it's yours.
