Sorry, Lynne, all info is anecdotal with no real evidence to hand. As I said originally, we were always told our roots were in Somerset, but, exactly where is unclear. Tracing back to the 1800's may be a little optimistic, but I wish you well in any further research you undertake. For my part, I can tell you that my twin brother, Brian, has 2 daughters -Aimee and Jennifer, and I have 2boys-Vaughan and Gareth, and 2 girls- Sian and Megan, so between us we're doing our best to keep the family name going! Once again, sorry I couldn't be more help, and good luck if you continue your search. Best wishes, Trevor Pugsley.
