red mail Hamilton
Hi, I have been told that my ancestor Harry Hamilton was born in May 1764 in Somerset, England. His father was noted as Lord Spencer Hamilton and his mother as Lady Charlotte Spencer. Is there any way to confirm this data through birth records or any other available records from that time period? Harry would have also been the grandson of James Douglas Hamilton, 5th Duke of Hamilton. FYzi, Harry came to the US in the late 1790s, presumably because his father disowned him for marrying a commoner from Tyrone, Ireland. Thanks for any help.

red mail Chivers - near Bath
I am trying to trace and locate the origins of a John Chivers a cordwainer / shoemaker working in Birmingham, born about 1802/3. In the 1851 census he gives a birthplace in Somerset county that looks like Higleton, Flighton or Highston - very difficult to read. In 1861 he gives his birthplace as Bristol, Bath.

His wife was Charlotte, born in Tardebigge, Redditch, Warwickshire, so I am guessing he moved to Birmingham before marriage.

red mail Broome, Thomas E.
Researching the Broome family line preceding my ancestor Thomas E. Broome who emigrated to Canada from England circa the late 1840s. He settled in Renfrew County with his wife. Information I do know is Thomas E. Broome was born in England in 1812 and he married Ann Rivett in Somersetshire around 1844. Ann was born in 1815 in Somersetshire England.

red mail Goopy, Guppy - Somerset
I am searching for any information on parents of John GUPPY (Cope) born in Calcutta in 1831. He migrated to Australia and died in Brisbane. He married Catherine McCauley (Irish) and there are many Goopy descendants in Australia. We don't know when he came here or when his name was changed to Goopy. There is no record of his parents, other than a note mentioning Cope. Was this a mis pronunciation when birth was registered and name became Guppy then Goopy? Is it possible his father was in the British Army, mother Indian? We do know that there were/are a large number of Guppys in Somerset, also in Canada. If this story seems familiar to anyone, I could really do with your help.
