Made some progress now John Samways, Matilda Grant, Samuel Rainey and James Lyman so we now have a complete set of great-great-grandparents for Dad! Still more info to be had from the census and BMD records, we're adding new family occasionally. It's really exciting when you find new family, but then it's a struggle again when you feel you have exhausted all the family tree info you can find. Find us also on myheritage.com, though I think we've used up our free allowance there and have decided it's not worth paying them any more. New family will definitely appear on this site.
No links to royalty or unclaimed family fortunes yet, but we have tracked down some surviving branches of our family tree that we knew nothing about, and found we had relatives on the Titanic.
Looking for Stoke Newington or Folkestone info here? Man alive you've been coming here a long time! Best off heading to the blog or following one of the "latest posts" links below for non genealogy related content.
Don't forget we have the surname Clarke and Clark in Paul's family tree and Clarkes (and Clarks) in The wife's family tree too. Clare's great grandmothers original name was Clarke. There is no connection that we can find thus far, no Clare and I were not related before we were wed... Clarke is a jolly common name so good luck if you are also tracing your Clarke tree...
