I dont look at these forums but saw this message re the Monckton book. I saw that your address is Australia so I guess you are from the Australian Moncktons as I am. The monckton Book is pretty rare and the ones that exist are pretty tightly held. They were only ever sold within the family and it gives the names of all the holders of the copies in the book. I know of the existence of four and now five with Janes message. I have never known one to be sold or of any in libraries. I have one however and it was passed through to me from my great great grandfather. I live in Sydney and you will see my email address from this posting. I would be interested to know which branch you come from. The most prolific branch is the Kentish Moncktons. The Monckton Book was published in 1886 by Dr Stephen Monckton a Kentish Monckton. The family trees known to that time are in the back of it.
