John, you marked your previous thread as answered but you're asking again?


John Report 2 Jan 2013 16:40

Hi . And thanks for the help .I now think that the Francis that I'm searching for lived in Walkeringham , but I can't find any information about him . Who did he marry what was his fathers name how many children did he have Etc . I'd be really grateful if you can put me on the right track . Thanks John Revill . :-D :-D :-D

I see you've deleted your previous thread now - was there any relevant info on there that you can give us to save looking it up again?

When and where did George Revill marry, and who to? (Might help us work back to the correct Francis).
