Hello I'm new

Grange over Sands
I have been subscribing to WDYTYA for about 12 months now, and always enjoy receiving it.:D
Last month I was particularly interested as I was born in Urmston, Manchester. I thought I was a lassy from Lancashire, but have traced my father's side BAXTER down to north Beds and Hunts to 1644.
My mother's side came from Devon. BOWLES outside Exeter and WATTS from near Barstaple.
My BAXTER grt grandfather moved up north in the 1890's and the BOWLES grt grandfather moved up with the railways around 1880.
I have some Manchester relatives and a mystery which I will post seperately.
Being retired I spend quite a bit of time researching.
Have been to Bedford,Northampton, Exeter and Barnstaple Record offices.
My long suffering husband doesn't mind incorporating these trips with holidays.
Hope to get to know you more in the future.
