About Our Family Research

The people in my tree span, Hampshire, Dorset, Somerset, Northampton, Durham, Wales.
After searching for many hours and with a help from others who have the same ancestors have managed to see just who my family were over the last 200 years.
I have found George Gray who married Pricilla, George Gray a navigator 1841 and his wife toll keeper in Limpley Stoke Wiltshire 1851. Both born before 1780.
The Barnetts from Shapwick, Bridgewater in 1729, John 1780 a 5 Hussar 1801-1815. An Inn keeper in Glastonbury Wells The Red Lion as was his son George Barnett 1861. Edwin Barnett being a police man of Bath.
Typhrena Wright 1824 who was a lace maker married William Smith his father George Smith was a master chimney sweep of London and he of Wellingborough Northants.
I have received photos from my cousins wife in Australia and from Cris and Jocelyn in Bath. which are of ancestors born 1823 onwards.
Photographs have shown family likeness following through many generations very evident even today in my family members.
So my tree grows and the stories come to life of people that lived in the past.
