about Thomas Wordsworth born 1834 I have found him in 1841 census as a Wadsworth in West Melton with his father Joseph [47], grandparents Thomas [70] & Mary [75] and sister Elizabeth [12] .

In 1851 Joseph is living with his wife Mary at Coley Lane, Brampton Bierlow
not in 1861 census in either spellings

Still searching for any family that knows John Williams who was killed in a road accident in Sept 1955 at the age of 29 years. Was an engineer engaged to Mary Slevin in Manchester. Born in Chester I think and had 2/3 sisters. Could possibly have gone to Leeds Uni.

Hi Clive. Everything we have currently is on the website already. It's a case of 'watch this space' I'm afraid. Phil.

I found a reference to this website by "Googling" my grandmother's name "Millicent Grace Knight". Someone on this website requests information on her. I believe this is the same person who married a Frederick Hill in Bristol, UK. They had a son, Frederick Roy Hill, who was my father. Millicent was born in Bristol around 1886 and died at age 24. I don't know the cause. The 1901 UK census lists her as a servant, at age 14, working for an Anglican minister in Bristol. I would love to know how she died and more about her husband, Frederick hill (b. around 1888)

Ed: Thanks Jeremy, I shall update the database with you information. If there is anything else you would like to add please email me (phil at w-f-t dot co dot uk).

To Ann Storey (nee Mobbs)

It would appear that you are not alone in your search for information about Jane Haggardy! There are at least 19 trees on Ancestry with her name in various forms but none with her pedigree. My bet, with her surname, is that she was originally from Ireland, or at least her family was. There don't appear to be any Haggardy (whatever spelling) families in Northamptonshire in the 1841 census.

I am descended from a David Williams born 1830 in Pemrokeshire.Wales and was wondering if your site is for all Williams's world wide.I am from Australia and I can't seem to find anything on my David not even when he came out or what ship he came on.I know I have to start here and work backwards but I have had no luck.

Ed: This site is intended for the Williams family from Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) but we have many visitors from all over the world and someone may drop in who could help you. You never know.
