Dear John, I wonder if you got my message dated 9Sept ? I will copy it here just in case yo didn't. I would be most interested to know about your PEMBER in Stepney and you also said you have them going back to Herefordshire which is where most of my mother's ancestors came from as well. Date: Tue, 09 Sep 2003 16:47:10 +1200 Dear John, Niceto hear from you, I suspect there is likely to be some connection with my John PEMBER. In the 1881 census he says he was born in London and I think I have him and afew sisterschristened in the Stepney area.
