Thanks for your reply David.I shall get in touch with your father. Thank you for confirmation of the cricket tie-up, I had suspected as much from an internet search but had not confirmed Felix the Bat was definitely one of ours. As is sometimes the case, the wealth of information was contradictory and even confusing so decided to take a cautionary approach for the sake of accuracy until something more concrete came along.That was you! The origins of the surname were a complete mystery to me, couldn't seem to categorise it at all, so am fascinated to learn of the origins. Would you mind giving me a syllabic breakdown of your surname pronounciation?I will try to get my Kiwi accent around it! I recently heard from another researcher who had two of her relatives marry two Wanostrocht sisters, Sally b 1803, Amelia b 1811.
