Clare Report 13 Jun 2007 22:54

Hi Elaine Sorry to butt in on the thread but I have John Biddle in my tree His daughter Hannah by his second wife Ann is my father's cousin's great grandmother. She married into the Armson family which I have a lot of information about. I don't have any info regarding John's wives' surnames or when they married as most of my info is on the Armson side. The Armson's were in the Hugglescote/ Ellistown area of Leics Feel free to PM me if you want any info, Cheers Clare
