Yes, this is certainly a beautiful and well-put together website. I love the pictures. My grandfather emigrated from the UK (Gloucester and Hardwicke) to the U.S. in 1901 and my grandmother in 1904. Nice to meet you!

What a great and very helpfull site you have developed . Congratulations .
My mother was a Pitcher from Gisborne in New Zealand. I found the Anne pitcher ( Powell)information on the family tree interesting .
If any one has any information to pass on it would be fantastic .
I seem to be drawing blanks with Laura Helen Pitcher.

What a beautiful website & so well put together! My Barrett family originated from Exton Rutland & some of my ancestors married Hibbitts (of/in Exton) i'm not sure at this point if they are any of the Hibbitts in your family history. The photographs you have of Exton are beautiful.

Vanessa :)

Admin reply: Thank you Vanessa for your remarks. I can't take credit for the Exton photos - a distant cousin and family history researcher sent them to me. It looks like a lovely place to visit. Have you seen my Hibbitt transcripts of some of the Exton parish registers under the Resources > Transripts section? There may be something there to help you.

You have a wonderful family site. At one time I thought that I was related to the Dando line of Spiers. I am not, but I have a very large tree for the silk manufacturer Joseph Spiers line from Coventry to Spitalfields.

Admin reply: Hi Ron. Thank you for your comments. I think we may have corresponded a while ago and you kindly forwarded one or two wills to me. I am also in touch with a couple of other Spiers' descendants - they were an interesting family indeed! It seems Joseph Spiers' grandson became an associate of the Institute of Civil Engineers and was proposed by his employer George Robert Stephenson, who was the nephew of the famous George and cousin of George's son Robert.

I am researching my family & found your website i don't no if your related to my side of the family or not. Grandad from Ferrybridge. :)

Admin reply: Hi Mandy,

Thanks for dropping by. I'm not aware of any of my relatives coming from Ferrybridge but it is always possible that distant cousins moved there. I trace my Hibbitt line back to Exton in Rutland, as do many others. :!sun:

At a late stage in my life I have started to spend a bit more time looking into my family surname. My "tribe" seems to come from Rutland, in particular the Exton area near to Oakham.
Your website has made some interesting reading which could well prompt a little more effort on my part to dig deeper. Thank you.

I am wildly excited to find this, as my Greatgreat grandfather was Joseph Spiers (the one who married Maria Tisdale). The Dandos were cousins and my grandmother could recall meeting some of them when she was little.
i am trying to research more about Joseph as he was a civil engineer with the Stephensons, who are my heroes, engineeringwise.

Well! where do i start, i stumbled upon your website looking for the history of Dursley, my fifteen year old daughter and I have sat here and enjoyed it very much. Though on looking through some of the names we found two surnames directley involved in our family. Firstly my name is Cowle however its thought that the "s" was dropped about 70 years or more ago as some of our family are still cowles, Some of my father's uncle's and cousin's are. Also we have come accross the vaughan name and that is my mothers maiden name, but she is from Kent and i dont think any of that side are from around here but i'm going to do some snooping around because you've got me wondering now.

fantastic thanks.
from Ruth Cowle. :)
