Chester England
Can anybody please help me obtain information regarding the following ancestors. I have managed to find some information but not enough to document it on my tree. I know that my 6 X great grandparents were JOHN DOBSON &. MARY BIRCHALL. My ancestors belonged to the Salmon Fishing Community and lived in HANDBRIDGE, CHESTER UK. What makes my family and I unique is that we have a rare heredity disease called PORPHYRIA.
My 2 X great grandparents were PETER DOBSON & SARAH ANN PAY. I know Peter was 1 of 3 illegitimate sons of ELLEN DOBSON (described in the Chester Chronicle Newspaper as a Chester Prostitute). All information/help will be extremely grateful.
