neil/neal/ nail birth in fonthill gifford, wiltshire


westville, kwazulu natal
South Africa
Hi there,

I am looking for a birth for Samuel Neal born 3 June 1764 in Fonthill Gifford, Wiltshire. (Parents possibly John Neale and Elizabeth Pilchard) Looking for any siblings to Samuel as well. Or in fact, anything to do with this family.

Hello Jack,

Hope this helps:

This regarding Neal etc., (having just found your reference to!):

For you this could prove a brilliant site!

Click into the websites Homepage and enter Neal into the searchbox provided. I’ve tried it and it’s worth individually entering all forms of Neal. A wealth of Neal information to be found here and the following is just a ‘taster’!
