I am researching the Somerville family from Stafford Staffordshire, England. Francis Somerville (b 1811) appears in the 1851 census with an occupation of Painter Compositor, but I don't know where he was before that. He married Mary Anne (surname illegible) and they had 14 children, Henry, George, Charles, Catherine, Mary, Sarah, Amelia, Elizabeth, William, Samual, Frederick, Horace, Alfred, Fanny:
In addition, I'm researching the surname Zulue. My Great Grandfather John, originated in Derrien Sur La Roche, Britanny, France however moved to Guernsey in about 1890. At the age of 15 his parents died and he joined the British Merchant Navy. He was employed onboard Royal Steam Packet Ships out of Southampton and in the late 1930's worked as a shore Manager for the White Star Line, later Cunard. He married Charlotte Titt. Specifically, I'm trying to find out anything about his birth place and parents.
Thanks for looking and good luck in your research
