Catherine Sureties

She was born in 1675 in Sunderland, death date unknown, parentage unknown. I would like to know if she is related to the Surtees family. She was married to William Coulson, born 1680. They married in Durham, at St. Mary le Bow in 1701. Thanks

Thomas Guy Douglas

Although he was born in 1840, I cannot find a death date for this ancestor, born in Sunderland. He seems to have disappeared when older and I would really like to know what happened to him. He was a master mariner, as was everyone in that family branch. His parents were Coulson Douglas (1803 to 1850) and Mary Potts, born 1807. Thanks

Susanna Moist

This ancestor has an interesting and rare surname which seems to be attached to where she came from. She was born in 1815 in Plymouth. Despite this rarity I am not sure who her parents were, but it may be possible that her father was called William, born 1789, with a mother named Ann. Susanna married a Joseph Gregory, born 1814, who also came from Plymouth. Thanks

Feby Milner

I'm quite fascinated by this ancestor. She was born in 1711 in Yorkshire and seems to have brought up illegitimate twins by herself named Nathan and Jane, born 1730, in Muker. These siblings weren't christened until 1745 in Muker nr. York. I can't find any trace of her parents, but I do wonder if she was disowned. I would be very interested in knowing more. Thanks.

Andrew Budge

I would really like to trace back further than one ancestor branch. He was called Andrew Budge, born 1680, married to a Margaret Bain, born 1690, but I know nothing else about him. His son was James Budge, born 1709, at Keiss in Caithness in Scotland, who married a Margaret Mann, born 1708. I have been told that Budge is a Scottish name connected somehow to the McDonalds, although I have never heard of it ...

Maynard Harrison, where did you go?

I’m trying to find the death of a Maynard Harrison who was born in Wales in 1864. The last sighting I have of him is on the Electoral Roll for Middlesex in 1926, where he appears with his wife Annie. After that he just disappears and I have no further information on Annie. Maynard is unusual as a Christian name. All the ones I’ve found are related to the same family. He has a connection ...
