I just found this forum and already have tried to contact a few of you directly but some may have changed emails.
Basically I am descended from Ann Wond, who is the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth.They were a humble family is seems, father Joseph being a caulker on the 1841 census.
Then I was amazed to read the son William Wond apparently went to Hawaii and such. I would like to know what evidence, other than a baptism of one William Wond on IGI there is, to connect this man in Hawaii to the very ordinary family back in Rotherhithe, Surry.
I saw an Ancestry File on IGI but I am not sure how accurate it is. Tracing the children of Joseph and Elizabeth on the census records there seems to be differences of up to 10 years for some of them,but I have only just started out with this investigation.
Anything would be great, particularly evidence so we can know for sure, this William Wond was in fact from Rotherhithe, and that his parents were Joseph and Elizabeth.
