would you be kind enough to look up. Sarah V Beal nee durham. born around 1862 married James in 1886. She was born in fulford in York so was probably still in that area. Also Stephen Durham born 1865 in fulford york married to Hannah Walls in 1887. I think they were living at 1 queens street chester. thanks Caroline

Hello Janet I hope you can help me i am looking for the place that my grandparents lived in Oxfordshire .They are James John Bryant and Therza or Thersa Bryant or they may not have been married then in that case my grandmother would have been Barrett. Iknow nothing at all about my grandmother as she died between 1910 when my mother was born and 1918 when my grandfather married Daisy May Jeacock . Not a lot to go on but anything would help . Thanks Val Barham
