Hi all, Just came accross this web site. It is extremely useful for anyone with ancestors in the Kilmersdon area of Somerset, as it is a data base full of births, marriages and deaths going right back to the 1600's.


Heather Report 14 Dec 2008 14:00

Parents of James Penny c1786 North Cadbury; John Penny c1771 Horsington and William Penny c1834 North Cadbury if anyone can help please.
