Further to my 'general questions' thread, for which I'm eternally grateful for the replies,:-

The search is for 'AMELIA BUCKINGHAM BORN AROUND 1864!' WHERE, WHEN, WHO WERE HER PARENTS? It is known that she was definitely born in India.

Many thanks kind folks,

Brian

Hi Brian,

There is a tree in Mundia that has Amelia's birth year as 1864 and parents as Henry Buckingham and Sarah Banfield.

Name: Henry Buckingham
Event Type: Marriage
Event Date: 1857
Event Place: Devon
Spouse's Name: Sarah Banfield

But im not finding anything on Amelia to eliminate or confirm the above are her parents.

Do you know anything more about Amelia such as who she married, where she ended up living etc?

Due to the 'windows 8' grief I live with, I decided to give all the information above to my cousin personally, and she is most grateful for your replies. It also gave us a chance to get up to speed with the Stafford/Locke side of our ancestors, and also chew the fat as well. :rolleyes:So thanks everyone.
