About Our Family Research

Hello, I'm Caroline Speake and I live in England and this is my attempt at a website. I have been interested in tracing my family for a long time and I think I have done quite well considering the way they have been spread around all over the world. We are quite an international lot. For example. I am English, my children are Danish, one of my brothers (half) is German, my father was born in India and ancestors include Scots, Irish, Belgian, Cornish, Brasilian...the list goes on.

I have been researching my father's side of the family, mainly the NASH family who came from Kent. In 1810 Mark Nash (b. 1785)married Christian TAVENOR and created the dynasty as we know it and whose tree I hope to add to my website. Christian TAVENOR was descended from Samuel TAVENOR who was born in Romford, Essex in 1621 and was a dedicated Roundhead in the service of Oliver Cromwell in the English Civil War. He also became Governor of Deal Castle.

I am also trying to trace the BALDREY family, in particular the ancestors of George BALDREY, born 1822 and christened in St George's Chapel, Windsor, and died at Fort St George in Madras, India in 1869. Any clues would be helpful.

The lady sitting on the other side of the bridegroom is the bride's mother, Margaret Lamb Darling (NASH) and the white haired old lady next to the bride is her grandmother Margaret Burnett Lamb.
