Thanks for replying. Andrew Im same as you ,i dont know many people with our surname.I have thought for a long time about tracking down my family history, but find it difficult with so few up North with our surname. We lived in Devon for a while,with alot more Pursers but not much use in finding my family line. I only know were my Grandfather lived most of his life Bury, but dont know where he was born. If you can help with anymore inform.
