Hi Dave, when/where was John Henry Eveleigh born? Who were his parents?

That's the only way to establish if there was a connection.

By the way, where is Burlescombe?


dopey06 Report 11 Aug 2013 11:10

Tracing family tree , I cannot connect , Jessie Agland 1878 Burlescombe , who married JOHN HENRY EVELEIGH March 01st 1899.

Is JOHN HENRY related to Robert Eveleigh abt 1800 ?

Who had children , John Robert 1832 - Mary J 1854 - William 1857 - Eliza 1861 - Jown Rowe 1870 - Emma 1870.

I cannot so far , find a connection , perhaps new eyes , might ? Hoping .

Hoping to hear , Thanks Dave
