If you can't trace his birth, how do you know he was born in 1745?

Is this his son's marriage?
William Wyatt Grainge - 20 Oct 1795, Hillingdon, Middx - spouse Mary Burgis

Reggie - Brian added a post to an old obsolete thread and when it was pointed out to him it looks like he's done the right thing by starting a new thread of his own (it's just that he's then duplicated it!)

Hello Brian and welcome to the Community Boards.

It seems as though there is another member of this site who has Robert in their tree. If you click on Search above and then on Search All Trees and fill in Robert's details, you will see what I mean. You can contact the tree owner for further information.







I have sent a pm advising Brian on how to return to his threads. :-D
