  1. hello
    i am requesting the information of the MANSELL family you have please

    thank you

  2. I am interested in the Petley Family hisory, I am descended from William Petley Master Mariner, born in Kent. Married in Sydney Australia to Mary Ann Dwyer
    about 1856.
    Willliam drowned on February 3 1868 off the West coast of New Zealand, his ship Fortune was a brig.

    I think he was born around 1819?
    Documentation of their children’s births state dfferent ages.

  3. Hi Brian,
    Interesting site,must keep you pretty busy! If you get a moment I would love to hear about your Siggee link. Most of my family tree is from the Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire area but a few people have told me they have seen the name in the Devon/Dorset area. I haven’t found any links yet but who knows?

    Kind regards

  6. Looking for family from St John Newbrunswick
    I do not see my maiden name in the lot, but my mother was a Macauly (not sure how to spell it) from St John
    My maiden name is Culetta from Pickering Onatario. My fathers name is Leonard.
    My half sister’s name is Sharon and was the only one to have contact with my mothers side of the family. She has passed away and leaves me to fend for myself. If you have any info it would be much appreciated.

  7. Hi Gail,
    I have just one Macauley in my tree, Catherine Florence. She married in St Michaels Camden Town London in 1930 to Albert Henry HUGHES so it seems she probably came from that region of the UK.

    Sorry I can’t help more as this is a very distant relationship and it is unlikely I’ll be following it further.

    A fourth cousins mother was Vera Maud Dumbleton. All my Dumbletons are from Warwickshire mainly Chuch Lawford except for William Samuel Dumbleton born London 1879 but moved to Church Lawford by 1891 census.

    Any joy there?



  13. I am trying to find further information regarding William and Rosetta Petley who lived in Rochester. They were both born in 1851 in Kent. They had nine children and lived in Folkestone. If you have any information, I would love to hear from you. Thanks.

  14. Hi Brian
    Any information on the Chatfield/Faulkner connection would be much appreciated. Reuben and Ruth Chatfield appear on the 1841 and 1851 census, then on the 1861 census appear as Reuben and Ruth Faulkner!!! Do you have any information on the reason for the name change? I am confused!! ( think his father was Thomas Faulkner).

  15. hi brian,
    I am interested in the Hirons family from Church lawford , do you have any information?


  16. Hi Brian,

    I discovered we shared a 37 marker close match
    on the family tree ydna site. I hope I have the right Brian
    Curd. The Brian Curd listed on my site is also from England. My paternal line has a Jewish branch, and
    is orginally from Germany, and then the Netherlands.
    Our connection despite the close match may be quite
    a ways back. Still if you could shed any light on this
    connection it would be appreciated. My ancestors name was Johann Martin Unger. Loved your Blogsite.

    Best Wishes, Peter Unger
