Hi Mike. Many Thanks for your reply on the Tims family. I have just sent off an Email to yatespast.com as you advised in the hope of them uncovering any details on the Tims there, as it does seem like James and Mary Tims,possibly with their family excluding Charles who moved from Shropshire to Middlesex Eng, moved abroad and possibly America before 1851. If anything turns up I shall let you know. Thanks again for your time. Merv Tims.
