I have Joseph Shire (b.1816) married Jane Jefferies in East Chinnock on 8th April 1844. They had 10 Children: Henry 1845, John 1847, Edward 1849, Isaac 1850, Marcia 1852, Betsy, 1853, Edwin 1854, Edwin 1859, Mary Anne 1860, Martha 1864.
Joseph's brother was my GGGrandfather.
I can take this line firmly back to 1717 and shakely back to the 1580's
