have done our best to piece together the evidence available but almost everywhere we wish there were more evidence.|
many people seem to be born without there being any more evidence - for others we are unable to find birth or baptism details and have to deduce connections from wills (a very good source) or family names (chancey) or other evidence.|
anyone has any corrections to make or people or branches to add we would be very glad to hear from them.|
we hope that making our work available may help someone somewhere to make a connection they may be struggling with.|
you do think that your family connects to any of these branches we would be happy to check the evidence with you and include your family on this site or provide a link to yours.|
