Re: parratts from hertfordshire
Great to find a connection! Amy Parrat and Richard Muncey are my G-G-G-Granparents. Richard was part of a family building concern in Stevenage, but died young leaving Amy with small children. The boys were apprenticed as builders, and Thomas Muncey (my line) and his cousin Luke Muncey migrated to London where they became builders / developers in North London area. Muncey line was traced by a great uncle of mine a few more generations. Have tried using IGI to trace Parrat line in Stevenage area with connections to Rowney, Shelford names amongst others, but not sure about full accuracy.
