Hi all. Posting this new messsage in case there are any new Drinkwater researchers loking in. My family were in Cheshire from around 1600 in Grappenhall with Peter Drinkwater and his family living at Massey Green Thelwall. This appears to have been a sizable house. Later the Drinkwaters moved to Northwich and were a prolific family and there are still many descendants in Cheshire today. They have spread out all over the world, to Australia, New Zealand , America, and probably other Countries too.
I hope one day to link up the several Drinkwater families that are to be found in Mid Chshire from the late C16 to the present time. Happy Hinting Ann
