I am very interested to learn about the Revd Theohilius Pugh, from your family. Especially if you have any detail or information about his time in Dover when he was Superintendent minister there. Also, any detail about his views on the Wesleyan'Fly Sheet Controversy'. With a local Dover church member, I am compiling a brief history of Methodism in the town of Dover. Many thanks, Revd Harvey Richardson
Hello, First of all, what a fabulous job you have done on the Williams Family history. Really impressive. I came to it while searching for Elizabeth Mary Williams (1864-1910). I believe she married a distant ancestor of mine, one Edward Edwards (1863-1919). Among their children was Lewis Johnn Edwards (1889-1937) and one of his sons was Anthony Herbert Edwards (1926-1973). His daughter is Tracy Edwards MBE, the skipper of the first all-female crew to sail around the world in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race. It seems the maritime tradition runs deep! Best regards, Gary Edwards OBE.

I arrived on your site purely by accident! My grandfather was Thomas Henry Fenn ; I've got a marriage certificate for Arthur Humphrey Fenn [married Margaret Williams on 17th February 1897] William Lawrence died September 1887. I hope this is of interest to you. I think you have more information on my Taid's side than I have!
Phil: just came across your website when researching Owen Williams, my great grandfather, (we have named our yacht here on Lake Ontario - Olive Branch- a schooner mastered by Owen Williams). I am not sure how to offer updated info but my mother, Winifred Williams (wife of William Lewis Williams) passed away on February 9, 2018 ion her 100th year. Thought that you might be able to use this. Also I can offer the updates as far as our offspring and their children are concerned. Stuart Williams
I am researching Lucy Jane Gardner (Aiano b1846). Her mother Catherine Aiano married (1858) my g.g.gfather's brother William Pierce and Lucy accompanied them to NZ. Catherine Pierce (Aiano) was admitted to Christchurch hospital in December 1876 but I can find no record of her death. In his will signed January 1877 William is "widower". Do you have any information about Catherine - where/when she died and where she was buried? (William is in Lyttelton cemetery).
I am the gg grandaughter of Robert Kingsbury son of John and Repentance Smart. I have in my possession a family bible originally kept by his wife Charlottr nee Thorne, Our family have been researching for over 40 years into our family history
Sir, I am searching for the family of "Willie Edward Williams" who died in Flanders on the 10th October 1917. He was born in Towyn (now Tywyn) but I have no further information regarding him, age, DOB etc., other than his WW1 information that he was a soldier with the King's Royal Rifle Corps, he was a rifleman and his regimental number was R/29414. I have something that belongs to him/his family and would like to pass it back to them.
Hello, what a lovely site! Very well presented and so interesting. I have been working on a branch of my tree which matches some of your entries. The Dorrington Family of Hornchurch. How are you connected to them? I see you have Ellis as a close relative - I have Ellis connected to the Dorringtons. Any connection there?
Great site and well presented. I've just found one of my lot in your data; Iris Vera Knibbs, married to Frank Flay. For more information, their page on my web site is at http://knibbs-family.org/fam1043.html

Hi, I am one of the grandsons of Rosella Male (Applegate) from the family tree. I would like to add to that side of the family. Could I have permission to enhance the tree? Thank you in advance!
Hi Phil, Nathan again from the Staniforth Society, I've still not come across any evidence to show your Staniforth branches from early 1400s Eckington are correct. I've just checked again and noticed you have a William Staniforth, son of Thomas Staniforth and Agnes (A marriage that I can find no proof of, no mention of an Agnes and Thomas on the Manor court rolls), but William is born almost 100 years after the father Thomas, and 50 years after the last child, surely you can see how this cannot be possible? Nathan Staniforth
