I think 1690 is something of a red herring....as is Cheshire

Hi Reggie,

Thank you ,
Samuel and Hannah married in Wybunbury before moving to woore in Shropshire, Samuel was of the family parents Samuel and Sarah Waste married Wybunbury Cheshire 1802 I have a lot of the family dating back to Stephen 's marriage to Martha Withal in early 1700 but unfortunatly have hit a brick wall with his birth as nothing is coming up I have an approximate birth of 1690 in Nantwich but drawn a blank.
I would like to trce my living relatives , I have Gladys mariage to Mr Wain but as Shropshire is slow to put on details to database I have not been able to trace and decendents.
Many thanks I will look further into some of the details
thanks Janet

NOW......look for children (there were three) You can find them easily enough

And be pro-active - use GR's 'search all trees' facility....................that's where you'll find links on here.........IF there are any
