    Can anyone assist with more information about my 4x great grandfather Ebenezer Davidson. My father has been told that he is entitled to wear the Davidson tartan as a member of Clan Davidson, however we have not been able to confirm a link back to Scotland. I have hit a brick wall when trying...

    Richard HEYWARD

    I am a descendent of William Heyward of Sidbury in Devon, son of Richard and Mary Ann. William emigrated to New Zealand in about 1857 and married Sarah Milligan in 1863. I am looking for some more information about William's parents - Richard Heyward and Mary Ann Ley Anning. I have been...

    Hello from New Zealand

    I've been interested in my family history for some time, and actively researching for the past few years. We have been able to research a two or three generations in New Zealand, but I'm more interested now in finding out more about our earlier generations in the UK. Our family has origins in...
