Richard: My mother's side of the family comes through the Pledge line.My uncle has done much research and I may have a match, possibly. My g-g-g grandfather was Edward Pledge, who married a Phoebe Tay on February 27, 1821.The marriage took place at St. Mary's Church, Stafford, England. Their children were:John Varney Pledge, 1821; Lucy Varney Pledge, 1825; Edward Varney Pledge, 1827 (my g-g grandfather); Mary Pledge, abt 1834. My line goes through Edward Pledge, Edward Varney Pledge(Birmingham), Alfred Edward Pledge (who emigrated to Nova Scotia, Canada in the 1890's, to Howard Pledge, Truro and Sydney, Nova Scotia (my grandfather). Hope this helps.
