Estelle Advisor Report 24 Dec 2012 12:18

My husband and I have spent the weekend working on our tree. We have been tracing his line and have discovered his 3xG grandfather was a traveller. I am keen to learn more about him but seem to be drawing a blank. This is what I have so far:
William Clifton Buck was born in 1818 in Shoreditch. He married Charlotte Perkins in 1840 in Kent. Their daughter Emma Clifton Buck was born in 1841 in Kent.
The family did end up back in Shoreditch though where Emma married Charles Pearce in 1864 in Hoxton. I have managed to locate them in each census. William was later shown as a hawker.
I know William's father was also William Clifton Buck. I guess he was born around 1790-1800. I am now keen to learn more about them. A Google search tells me Buck was a Romany name. And the fact he was a traveller when he married and then later a hawker does imply there may be Romany blood in them,
I'd be grateful for any help you can give though!
Thanks and merry Christmas!

A tree on another site has this attached, but as they have different parents to you for William Clifton Buck, it may not be the correct person

There are several trees on that other site with this person on them, but the information is muddled on some.


There's some good information re Romanies/travellers here:

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/board,387.0.html


Also, there are a few other members on this site who have him in their tree. Maybe worth checking for further info.



Will send Estelle one of my messages on how to return... ;-)

Hello everyone!

Well apologies for posting on the wrong board. I have no excuse for that one really :-( And sorry for not replying sooner. We have been busy with family and finally got round to a bit more research now.

However, many thanks for the helpful replies. :-)

I have already been in touch with another member on here who has given me some useful info. And I'll take a look at Rootschat too for the Romany info.

Best wishes,

Estelle

Lady Kira, thank you so much. That information is extremely useful. There's a lot to digest, but we tend to write everything down and keep paper copies as we find it easier to keep everything then in some sort of order. This is going to keep us really busy now updating our tree.
