I have a genealogical tree of this family dating from the late 1800/early 1900 period and going back to 1066. How reliable it is I do not know but it is poster sized and complete with coat of arms. It belonged to the husband of a great Aunt and I am willing to pass it on to anyone of that name who might be interested otherwise it will be scrapped. Contact me via genes if you would like to know more, Pat

If there is any location info, look in 'search all trees' to find if anyone on GR is researching the family

Welcome to the boards Pat

If you have not done the research yourself then you cannot guarantee anything is correct

If you want to believe it is correct going back to William the Conqueror then that is up to you

you might want to contact the person who wrote this post several years ago

http://genforum.genealogy.com/draycott/messages/1.html

the link is to a pretty dead website

http://www.draycott.org.uk/

but my javascript info shows that it is connected to here

http://www.nsheldon.co.uk/

that being the family history website of the person who wrote the genforum post, and his email address is at the 'contact us' link

Thanks all. I by no means think this is genuine all the way back but a family member might want it so worth a try
