Mat, Basil was my great uncle. My grandfather was his older brother Joseph William Lawrence Frankland. Tracing the family tree must run in the blood as there are several of us researching it. We have managed to get back to John and Jane Frankland, living in the Huby/Helperby area of Yorkshire, near Dishforth. We had a small family reunion last year in the pub in the village of Helperby where the family still reside today and have done since the very early 1800's. My email email@example.com.
