Hello Matthew, thank you for your reply, It does appear we are related somewhere along the line. I went to the site and read about Axholme, all very interesting, I had always said the first Isle's must have lived near an island, never knew how close I was to the truth. Some Isle families here in New Zealand are spelt Ilse. Not related to my father's family, as far as I know. Regards, Betty Burmister.
