Thank you John for taking the time to reply. It is all very interesting. As you say the key is accessing Robert Folliard's material, it must contain a great amount of detail on the Folliard lineage. Unfortunately it doesn't look like I will be able to tie mine in anywhere. My James would have been born about 1800 and his children's names were Adam, William, James, Mary, Sarah, Martha and Isabella and he also possibly had a brother named William.
