Elizabeth Report 28 Feb 2020 09:54

I am searching for anyone who may still live in Northampton area and especially Great Doddington and anywhere beyond who may be related to the Luck family.

I have researched back to my GGGG grandfathers from about 1747.
George, William, Samuel, Thomas on my mothers side.
Samuel married Mary Bithray and they had several children, one of whom was my G Grandfather Thomas. He later moved to Birmingham and later married Sarah Russell. They had children, including Thomas Frederick who was my Grandfather.
Thomas eventually married Annie Jones and they had 3 children, Thomas, Dorothy (my mum) and Sidney.

Be good to hear from anyone.
