Hi I am Heather from Co Durham (they wouldnt let me use Heather lol).

My family are a mixture of Co Durham, Northumberland North Yorkshire, and Scotland with a wee bit of Irish thrown in.

Main names from Co Durham are Egy, Brewster and Smurthwaite - anyone with any revelations on my Brickwall John Smurthwaite from Toft Hill will be regarded as a god or goddess by me.:)

Yorkshire names are Brewster and Pearson (they moved to Co Durham) Hillary, Stones and Carter.

Muir is my maiden name and my main connection to Scotland with Copland, Nicoll and Taylor in there too and my Irish connection is Campbell who married into my Muirs.

nice to meet you all

Heather
