Prue I read your message on page 2 could there be connections. I left a message their too. I am a newbie, trying to trace my ancestors. My grandmother was Grace Firth married to John Duckenfield in Dewsbury in 1913, My mother Elsie used to talk of a great or gg grandfather coming to Australia and leaving his family in England until he made his fortune they expected to come to Australia but instead went to America, they lost a child through drowning so went back to England I would be interested to hear from other descendants with more information. My grandmother Grace had a sister called Alice.
