      Dear Mr Williams,



      I thought it was time I made contact. We must be related; I appear on your excellent chart as 'Living': I am the youngest sister of Valerie Anne HEATH ( who died in 2001).

      I have quite a few details of dates you might like but my main reason for writing now is because I am on the trail of the missing father of Richard ( Bolitho ) HAWKEY, my 3 X great grandfather on my mother's side. He was baptised Richard on 1st Oct 1769 and described as 'base born 'son of Mary Hawkey. Later in life he used Bolitho ( Bellithia, Bolitha) as a middle name. I have recently received the DNA test results of a sample provided by a male cousin. On the Y-chromosome we have several matches. There are no fewer than seven zero genetic distance matches, two of which had the surname BOLITHO. This would suggest that a Mr Bolitho was indeed the father of Richard . However I have only gone for that because of Richard's 'Bolitho' middle name. There are FOUR other surnames of people who match, all men, which presents a puzzle. Either children have been adopted or some serial philandering has gone on! The surnames are:-

      Tucker X6, Bolitho and Peacock X2, Gundry and Williams X1 . So far I have contacted both Bolithos but their paper pedigrees do not go far enough back. Other people haven't replied yet or don't think they can help.

      I would really like to break through this 'brick wall' and DNA is such an amazing tool that it would be sad if too much information turned out to be the barrier!



      Again the matches for the mitochondrial and autosomal tests run to thirty pages! I have noted a few family names but have only contacted a few people s far. I tried a Mr Gossett who did not reply but that would confirm my descent from Margaret Gossett who died in 1711, wife of Pentecost Williams.



      Incidentally, earlier this year I satisfactorily filled in a similar gap in my father's side of the family and broke through a 180 year old family secret. Not only did we find my 'real' maiden surname but I believe we have pinpointed my actual 2X great grandfather. Two missing ancestors found within four months would be truly amazing.



      I hope this information, albeit partial so far, will be of some interest. If nothing else it shows that Richard was not the son of Mr Symonds who is shown as his father on some web sites.



      Do let me know if you would like further details which I have and you may not. For example, the fourth child of Richard HAWKEY and Sarah THORPE was Elizabeth Sarah ( you have an unnamed girl at the end of your list of their children ). She was born on 30th Aug 1875, Whitechapel and died one year nine days later on 9th Sept 1876 and buried in the Tower Hamlets Cemetery. I have details on several generations of THORPE, Sarah's forebears; the ancestors of George ROSS and Fanny Amelia LARGE and, as a tiny tweek, my mother's name was Joan Marian HAWKEY ( with an a not an o).



      Very best wishes,

      Gillian Forsythe ( Nee Heath)
