Hi Tanya thanks for your note. I have got back basically as far as Johns parents but don't know much about them. I have a copy of a family tree that was sent to me by a fellow from the Isle of Wright that has a few more names on it but I'm still searching it, but of course I have more about the family from now until then including little pieces of history about the type of people they were. Mainly Pub dwelling I think!! Is it possible to contact outside of this forum do you know? Speak to you soon.
