Saw your post re Richard helsby, I have quite a lot of information on the various lines so will check to see if I can find Richard. I have info from the genealogical researches of Thomas Helsby.
I am interested in the "Helsby Family Scrapbook" as reference is made to it in some notes from Thomas Helsby. Thomas went by a number of names and there is a mystery regarding the name "Brand" which he appears to have used when he married an Elizabeth Ball. The info may be in the scrapbook. Unfortuately being in Austrailia I cant get access to it, till I am able to visit London.
CVan you give me an idea of what sort of items the scrap book contains? Any name changes ie by deed poll, certificates etc?
Any help will be appreciated, in the meantime I will check for info on Richard.
