Tony, Thomas Carrington Aylward was my great g-father, Carrington g-g-g-father. I have the family tree running to the present day from there - and have contact with another descendant of Thomas Carrington Aylward. Carrington's father was Joshua Aylward who was a fisherman, living in Thames Street in Greenwich. I believe my other correspondent may be able to take it back further.
Alan Aylward PS I am not sure from the previous correspondence if there is any Irish connection. I am also interested in where the "Carrington" comes from
