The owner of the Smith/Parret tree seems to be the great grandaughter of Frederick Coombs/John Ufton.

It might be worth Brian getting a free trial at Ancestry so he can make contact and see the tree.

Brian - if you do that YOU MdUST MAKE SURE you cancel the free trial in time , otherwise you will get charge for a full sub.
