This is probably of no help to you but here goes. My Great-Grandfather, George Dashper, was born in Tavistock in 1853 (died 1919). He went to sea and, on his return, became a farm bailiff at Bicester, Oxfordshire and, later, Little Milton, Oxfordshire. He had 3 daughters, of whom I have no information, and 4 sons, Fred, Ernest("our kid"), Arthur(my grandfather b.1890) and Harry. If you would like any more info about my family, let me know. From what you say, however, you probably know more than me. I would certainly like to get any information that you have about the Dashpers. I presume you know about Julian Dashper in Auckland (firstname.lastname@example.org) I also have a list of names and addresses of all the Dashpers in the UK. Let me know if your interested.
