Re: Scuffhams of Mellis
Yes I believe we are connected. I sorted out my records and the connection is this:
Pamela Scuffham, Daughter of Edward (no mothers name though)was indeed born in Worthing. I was confusing her with David who was born in Oakley. Pamela Married George Tilson on 6 May 1867 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
I don't know what happened to George but in 1873 Pamela marries my g.g.grandfather David Christmas Farthing at Stavely, Chesterfield, Derbyshire. They have Children:
James Edward Farthing;Spencer Scuffham farthing;Jane Mary Farthing;Augustus Arthur Farthing;Sydney David Farthing.
It's interesting to note that on the Marriage certificate Pamela gave her fathers name as Scuffham Tilson.
Pamelas sister, Laura, Married a witness at Pamelas wedding to david. His name was Henry Broomhead and they married 9 March 1868 in Chesterfield.
I would love a copy of the photograph you have and thank you dearly. In return I can only offer a picture of Pamelas granddaugeter
Mary Elizabeth Farthing (my grandmother). A copy of my family tree is avaible in GEDCOM or Generations file format at my old site:
my new site www.gough-farthing.co.uk is still under construction and has only some Gough facts on thus far.
