Does anyone know what happened to Harriet Wintle's husband (Samuel Wintle) ? My great great grandfather was Cyril Wintle and I have all his descendents if anyone wants information from him forward to now.

Just found our that Samuel Wintle's descendents still run the farm at Yew Tree Cottage in Westbury on Severn! Thats over 160 odd years in the same Wintle family, you dont see that so much these days!

Thanks for all the updates, I think thats my next couple of nights sorted!!


Julie Report 12 Feb 2013 16:13

Does anyone know what happened to Thomas Wintle born 1830? He doesnt seem to be on the 1851 census but he is on the previous one?
