I have other information about the children from Thomas Ace and Samuel Ace.Most of the information was sent to me my the Swansea section of the Glamorgan Family History Society, some years ago. (via Mrs Wendy Cope)
I also have in my folder information given to me by Barrie Diamon who had traced all of the Aces from Buckland Brewer in Devon 1657-1687 through to marriages at the Gower 1681 etc.
Also over the years I have been in touch with many people researching the Aces from the Swansea area e.g. the Lighthousekeeper Abraham James Ace.
