Hi Romany Rose,

Found a tree on IGI for John Bird b. 1779 Snetterton m 1806 Ann Gould b. 1785
parents William Bird b@1750 Elizabeth Froman b@1754.

Could this be the family ??? There are a few too many generations to put here.
Don't know if it is right, there don't seem to be any records to back this up :(

Hi Romany Rose,

You're welcome, are you sure his father is John b 1744?? Because that tree on IGI says his father is William b 1750.
