Hi Marcia; Sorry it has taken me a while to answer, I have 18 people for dinner tomorrow, so had to get prepared. Apart for one entry in 1692 the earliest William Astill is a birth for 1844. the closest William Edwards is 1826. The earliest birth in Hants for a william Bunch is 1729, however in the 1708-1801 era they seem to be mostly in Lincolnshire. The areas are in Lincoln and Stamford. There are also a couple in Hunsdon Hertfordshire. What do you think? Could this be where the family originated? Do you want these? let me know and I will do them after all my guests leave.

Hi Patricia; The VRI only shows records up to 1906. I am going to the FRC on wednesday and need to look in Middlesex records myself. If you email me directly on tuesday to remind me, I will see if the parish record is at the FRC.

Hi Deborah; You didn't say which county for Harriet Dawes, so gave you the ones with the closest date.Here is the marriage of William and Mary ann. Since William was married in 1824 I have given you the three births prior to that , although not in Glos. I have given you the William Kingdon births for Glos although I don't think they fit in with William and Mary Ann's marriage. I could not find any births for children of William and Mary Ann. Only one Mary Ann Hughesin Bristol at that time, hope its the right one. Let me know if you need more help.

If you have the time could you please look up John Greenley b.c1845 North Burton, Yorks and wife Mary b.c1849 Langtoft, Yorks. I know they had children called John William b.c1876, Joseph b.c1879 and Benjamin(e) b.c1881 but would like to know if there were any more. They were born in the Argham/Grindale area in Yorkshire and later moved to North Burton, Yorks. I haven't been able to find a marriage for John and Mary yet. Thanking you Jeanette

hi teresa and thank you i see wot u mean about williams christening being before william snr and mary anns marriage but i think they are the right people as i have william jnr confirmed as 1834 from other sources dont suppose you can find james and ann hughes marriage to give me her maiden name plz harriett dawes marriage to walter monk sets her birth at 1832 so its strange we have a harriett either side of that....do i guess now which she is? hate guessing but sometimes its all u can do in this game thanks once again debbi

Hi Teresa, Looking for G.Grandfather Felix Duffy all I know really is that he died prior to 1921 when my grandparents were married. My grandfather Joseph Cuthbert Duffy was born 1899. Felix lived in Newcastle upon Tyne Northumberland not sure where he was born. I know this is not much to go on but I can't get of base line at all. Thanks Anne-Marie

Hi Teresa, Does the VRI go back to the 1700's? If so could you please check for a Thomas Worner/Warner born around 1770 in Somerset probably in South Petherton or Martock? I can't seem to find him to check his birth or parentage! I know he married Susan Daniels in 1795,but previously he seems to have vanished! Many thanks,Sinead

Would you see if you can find William Gamble, born South Clifton, Notts in 1832/33 . He was my great great grandfather and I would love to find some info on him? Many thanks.
