Do you happen to have any dates on Thomas and perhaps an approximation on his father John.
My grt. grt. grandmother Eliza's father was quite possibly named John.In as much as I have very little to go on, it is my understanding that said John was a farmer who died abt. 1850 in Chelmsford.
The forenames that have been bantied about in my family, are John, Thomas, William & Henry.It is my understanding that Henry may very well have been Eliza's uncle.In any event, one of them (possibly Henry) included Eliza in their will whereby she inherited a house.
I have been told that she was born in Essex.
Some of the information that you have listed, seemed rather similar to that which I had heard with respect to my line.
It would be great hearing from you in order that I may possibly establish a link or at the very least discount it and move on.Thankyou so much.
