|I am researching the Amos and Waldock families from England(my father's side) and the Bromfield and Gell families, also from England (my mother's side).|
The Bromfield family, also spelled Broomfield in some records, seem to have come from rural Lincolnshire. The Waldock family seem to have come from Ashwell in Hertfordshire.
I am having much more difficulty in tracing the Gell's and the Amos's!I am looking for a Thomas Gell, father of Edward Gell (born 1847, date of death unknown). Thomas was a blacksmith, and probably came from the Nottingham area.I am also looking for link to the Amos's in Peckham and Brixton, London in the mid 1800's.
I will be glad to hear from any one who may have information, and also to share discoveries that I make.
