A rare name? you must be joking, they were very very thick on the ground in Nuneaton in the 1800's! I know because I still cant work out which one mine is. Her name was Mary Daffern and she married John Mottram in Nuneaton on 8/3/1849 Does anyone have her in their tree? Regards Louise
obtw.. info for Fran...I used to work with a guy called John (forgot his surname)begins with an M I think.....who certainly had a Billings/Daffern connection. He lived in Stockton on Tees somewhere. If I remember his name I will repost this so you can try and find him.
