Hi, I wonder if you can help? Do you know of anyone who has/is done/doing research into the Ward family from Stradbroke?

Thank you in advance.

Do you know of anyone doing research on the Burgess family of Wilby/ Stradbroke. I am interested in the ancestors of Robert Burgess b 1758 Wilby d. 1844 Stradbroke. He was illegitimate, his mother being Elizabeth Burgess bap Wilby 1731 (also illegitimate) daur of Eunice.  Am particularly keen on finding out who Eunice was and where she came from.  I'm happy to share what I know of Robert's descendents - particularly my husband's branch who moved to Littlebury, Essex and thence to South London.


Any help would be much appreciated.


Thank you

Hi, as a new member I was wondering if anyone is looking at the Cockerell family of Stradbroke, also the Jennings family.  I am the Great great Grandaughter of Eliza Cockerell 1808-1870 who married William Jennings. Eliza was the daughter of Thomas Cracknell Cockerell and Charlotte Brightley.  Thomas 1772-1830 the son of Robert Cockerell b. 1740 and Ann Barker. Any help much appreciated. Lizzy from Cornwall

Hi, I'm visiting Stradbroke tomorrow (11.5.2013) with my parents to see what we can discover about the Borrett family. Can you recommend any places we should look? Definitely going to visit the Church.

Very excited!

Would you have any clues why and how members of the Gibbs family (tailors from Wilby) migrated to the Orford area in the late 18th and early 19th centuries?  They had connections with the Girling and Borrett families.
