Bunn in 1820 Birmingham / Warwickshire
My mother's father's mother inlaw was a Sarah Anne FARLEY born circa 1820, in any census that she appears her birth place is either Birmingham, Warwick, Warwickshire or Birmingham Warwickshire. In 1851 she was living with William Farley I can find no marriage record however the birth records of three of their children give her maiden name as BUNN. In 1841 Sarah BUNN a 15 yr old book binder was living in Norfolk street Bethnal Green, the head of the family was Thomas Bunn, place of birth was not required in this census only a yes/no they answered no ie not born in Bethnal Green. So far I have found no earlier records on line - I would appreciate some advice on where to look.

Hello Does anyone know of the Fitzwater family? Howard was a home child, and went to Canada in 1929, he returned to England, in 1936, and then went back to Canada, of his own volition, once more returning in 1938. Apparently, his next course of action was to join the R.A.F However, there is no information as to Howard's whereabouts, once he returns to England, and he is not mentioned in the Absent Voters list, unlike his brother, Edward., Howard was born to my Great Aunt, Sarah Jane Sly and Louis Edward Fitzwater, in 1914, he married Ethel Venables(Nee Pugh), in 1962, and he died in 1972. If anyone can find out where Howard was living between 1938 and 1955, I would be grateful for your help. Ethel and Howard had no children, but his three surviving brothers and sister, did, although Alfred died in 1947, and his wife remarried. Also, I would appreciate it, if anyone knows of any living friends of the family who might be able to tell me something about Howard's service with the R.A.F. because, at presant that is information it is difficult to get hold of. Thank you

red mail Nathaniel Woodward b. about 1590
I am still putting together information this Nathaniel Woodward. There is a lot of conflicting information on him and his family. May have been from Lincolnshire or Wiltshire, England. Came to Boston prior to 1633, when he joined the First Church as a member. He was trained as a carpenter (builder) but the Colony used him as a surveyor on many occassions. He led the crew that laid the border between Mass. Bay Colony and Plymouth Colony, the later between Mass Bay and Connecticut. He was admitted as a freeman (to Boston) on 17 April 1637. The last reference to him is to be found in 1661, but the last reference to his property in 1670, but he is never referred to as "the late Nathaniel Woodward". He may have gone to Taunton, where he and his son had property, or even back to England. He was by then at least 71 years of age. Named in the Journal of American Genealogy, it said that he came from Warwickshire, where his family held positions in the Magistry and the Courte Elite of the county. It said that a Nathaniel and a Samuel were cited by a Bishops bench in 1630 to go to the hall of the Lord de Bermingham to take an oath that they would not preach their Puritan outside their home. They instead left with two yeoman, Henry Saterlee and Richard Sumner to Whitehaven, to take passage to Boston. It also said that papers exist in the Archives at Aston Hall that prove this Woodward line (lineal decendents of Edgebaston, Birmingham Woodward line) is "closely related" to the main Shoevington Manor and Standish Manor, Lancastershire. These papers were deposited there, (Aston Hall) in 1840, and were a sworn copy of another set that were in the Borough Library at Birmingham, Warwickshire. A letter was found at Castle Browmich Hall to Lord de Bradford written by Nathan Woodward in 1644, bearing the post mark of Roxboro, Massachusetts. (Roxbury, Mass)

Rev. Richard Amos (b 1821) & Elizabeth Capewell (b 1819)
Does anyone have information about the ancestors of Reverend Richard Amos (Ames)? I believe he was born in 1821 in Warwickshire and married Elizabeth Capewell (born 1819) from Birmingham in 1846. Richard was a Wesleyan Minister and migrated to Australia and Tonga shortly after marrying Elizabeth. Richard died in Parramatta NSW Australia in 1870 and Elizabeth died in 1872. I believe Richard's father's name was Thomas born in 1800 and his grandfather was Sergeant Major Richard Amos born around 1756. I presume they all came from Warwickshire. Thanks
