Also have Beds Purser ancestors. Mine are those in Leighton Buzzard in C19. By following particular names in family groups (Abraham & Charles particularly) once past civil registration I have concluded that my direct line goes from: my mother Frances Mary Purser 1914-1968b. Birmingham Frank 1874-1954b. Leamington Spa Charles 1838-1927b. Leighton Buzzard John 1802-1849b. LB Richard 1758-1834b. Clapham, Beds Abraham 1712-bef 1785b. Houghton Conquest Abraham 1687-?b. Cople Richard 1648-1693b. Cople Nicholas 1612-?b. Cople then more speculaively still Richard 1568-? b. Cople Lawrenceb. ?
Would gladly pass on files if anyone wants & would appreciate thinking on earlier Purser connections. Even more would I like to come across anyone with Leamington Spa &/or Leighton Buzzard relations.
