red mail William Long married Anna Foot on 14 September 1747 daughter Love Long 1749
Williams marriage with Anna is traceable and when Love Long their daughter got married to William Mullins the witnesses were Silas Foot and Mary Evans confirming that love was likely to be the daughter of this couple William Long and Anna Foot although the problem is that there are many William Longs the right age to be the one who marries Anna Foot and this makes it hard to know who the right one is. There was one baptised in Wiltshire with no town given 03/10/1723, another 31 Jul 1722 Deverill-Longbridge, Wiltshire and another 16 Aug 1725 Hilperton, Wiltshire, and then even another 18/09/1721 Chitterne Wiltshire. Could somebody please help locate the right person?

Any suggestions welcome. Thank you in advance.

red mail Mary Blonkerd Chambers abt. 1760 - was she Dutch?
My 5th great grandmother Mary Blonkerd married John Chambers at Salisbury St Edmund in 1780. They had at least one child, a daughter called Phillis and they lived in Purton, Lyneham, Wiltshire. Since both John and Mary were illiterate the banns and the marriage record were written phonetically by the cleric, I have no idea what Mary's real surname is (the writing is pretty clearly Blonkerd). I cannot find any other Blonkerd on genealogy sites and have found it only twice on google as a rare Dutch surname. I am wondering if Mary was related to the Dutch weavers who immigrated to England in 1673 to work in the English/Wiltshire woollen industry. Blankhart is a more common Dutch surname and could have been misheard as Blonkerd. I have also seen Blanket as a surname in England. Does anyone know if there were any lists or registers of the Dutch immigrants to Wiltshire or do you have any Wiltshire Dutch heritage yourselves? Many thanks.

Tracing great great grandfather--born in Feltham Feltham Hello I am doing a family tree and would appreciate some information. I live in San Francisco. Everything I have heard about my great great grandfather has been through word of mouth and no facts. I have been told that FRANK GEORGE YOUNG--the man in question faught in the zulu wars. I looked at the Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift roll calls and do not find his name. I found his estate in the national archives of South Africa in Pietermaritzburg. His death certificate states that he died in 1935 at the age of 77. His country of birth: England. How he got there I don't know. He was a dairy farmer with many cattle. When I subtract 77 from 1935 I get 1858 which would be the year he was born. I checked the national sencors in England and found 2 matched the name. 1. FRANK GEORGE YOUNG born in Feltham, Middlesex abt 1858. He was dairyman and registered at Croydon; Civil Parish: Croydon; County or Island: Surrey in 1881 censors. He would have been 23 years old then. 2. FRANK GEORGE YOUNG born in Adesdiston, Wiltshire abt 1858. Civil Parish: Aldershot; County or Island: hampshire; Registration District: farnham. He was a Soldier Driver R H A. When I search the British National Archives I see that the Royal Artillery from Wiltshire did fight in the Zulu wars. I am trying to trace if 1. FRANK GEORGE YOUNG of the Feltham, Middlesex or 2. FRANK GEORGE YOUNG of Ahesdiston, Wiltshire fought in South Africa in 1878 - 1890. I would like to know which one went to South Africa. Please help. Thank you Sincerely, James

I am currently trying to research my family tree, but have hit a hurdle when it comes to going beyond the 1800's. The relations that I have researched are too extensive to add in this message, but John, Alfred, Thomas and William were certainly common names!! If anyone out there thinks they can help me,I would greatly appreciate it... (alternatively, maybe I could help someone out there fill in some gaps in their tree)!! The majority of them hailed from Wiltshire, but I am aware that a strain of my family moved to Frome in Somerset, and also to the Bedwellty, Wales area (probably to work down the pits)!! The occupation of the majority of my ancestors centred around agriculture, but I believe there were minors, servants and cabinet makers thrown in for good measure!

Job LEGG to be precise. My mother-in-law was Flossie LEGG who came from several generations of LEGGs who lived in Buriton, Hants. The name can be traced back to Job LEGG b c.1801 if the age on his death certificate is reliable. Only other informationfrom 1841 census is that he was born out of Hampshire. From IGI it seems that most Job LEGGs hail from Dorset, but those known appear to have been accounted for. So is anyone missing him from their tree in Wiltshire? Would also be interested to hearfrom anyone who has their Job LEGG as that would eliminate him from inquiries!
