I have a couple of William Drury/Drewry in my family tree, do the other Drury/Drewry families from Kent link up with this person ? (Sir Knight William Drury/Drewry was born abt 1550, in Bobbings Court, Kent.) A bloodline, or perhaps just worked for him ? Anyone got any thoughts/ideas ?

Why do you not contact all the other people on genes who have this family in their trees?
And then contact people with Drury/Drewry from Kent to exchange ideas and information?

Hello Graham, it's probably quite a small minority of Genes members who actually use these boards so I'm afraid you're not likely to get much (if any) response.

As patchem says, you have to take a proactive approach to finding connections on this site.

Hi Graham, if you google, there is quite a lot online for the Drury/Drewry family from Bobbing. You may be able to find something interesting from there.

I took Patchem's idea and there are quite a lot of folk on this site with your William in their tree.You could be busy... :-D
