Hi Frances. I'm reading some year 2000 messages for Northam. I have Northam family in my Tree. Elizabeth Northam [b.ca 1808] Married William Henry Russett [b ca 1810] in 1832/3. This family of Northam's owned a number of general merchandise shops in the Bristol area, covering several generations. Unfortunately the WW2 bombing raids put paid to some of these businesses. You can reach me at< firstname.lastname@example.org > if you think you are connected to our 'tree' as I don't use internet regularly. bye for now Shirley. Bristol UK.
