Hi Ketley Family posters. So excited when I stumbled across this forum yesterday! (3 Feb 2010)As I read each post, my excitment level rose. As I have been hoping for that small bit of information that may lead to adding another piece to the Family Tree puzzle. Our Sarah KETLEY married Richard Henry BRITTON on 23 May 1790, at Great Bardfield, Essex. We are guessing she was born abt 1761, around the same area.She died 16 April 1837 also in Great Bardfield. On reading the posts here, alot of names mentioned in each family group,are the same as our Sarah & Richard named their children. (Taking into account both sides of course) these being James, William, Sarah, Ann & Thomas.
Having a brief look at a map of Essex, I see Great Bardfield is about 30 minutes car drive from the Broomfield,Great Waltham & Chelmsford areas, so that could also help in finding a connection with some of the families mentioned on this forum, yes, I'm grasping at straws of course :) but we will never know if we don't take a guess.
Would love to hear from anyone who may be able to shed some light on Sarah & her family.(Later generations of the Brittons also came to Australia NSW & Victoria.
