I have hit a wall in my research with the Ewers.i have got back to a William in the late 1700's.Do you use Genes Reunited as my family tree is on there and I can give you access to see it?
It is strange that some of the Ewers were seargent at arms/ yeomen to Charles 1st and yet were involved in the signing of his death warrant.I understand they were staunch quakers and this had somehting to do with it??
My auntie seemed pretty sure that the signature on the death warrant was Obadiah? However his date of birth/death does not tie up with the date of the death warrant, so something is not quite right.
Which Ewer are you descended from?Are you any relation to Norman William Ewer (Trilby) who was a communist spy in the 1920/30's?
