Thanks Ken for your reply. I can confirm the marriage date of Thomas Dormer and Lois Gumbrell is 09/02/1851 at St. Mary Putney. My line is as follows: Thomas Dormer and Lois Gumbrell. Isabella Dormer and Alfred James Shaw. Lucy Shaw and Walter Stephen Fox. Rose Fox and Thomas Dring. me. I am also intrigued by the Stevens USA link to the Dormers but at the moment cannot shed any further light on it.
There are so many strands to connect together but I really want to find out where the Dormers lived before Stanwell. I have an old portrait photograph of Isabella Dormer and the family likeness is striking. Regards, Pauline
