My father has spent 40 years researching his family and my mothers, so that leaves me with my husband's family! They are the Reuby family originally from Cork, and the Golesworthy's from Honiton, Devon, who all moved to London in the late 19th century. So far I've found a possible bigamist, rumours of a suicide, and some rather hasty marriages. :)

The only claims to fame in my ancestry are Sir William Blackstone, (who declared that it's better that ten guilty men go free than one innocent man suffer - no wonder the country is in the state it is!) and a chap who was engaged to Jane Austen for about 12 hours before she saw sense and ran away.

My other hobby is crochet, and I'm a volunteer at the Museum of Computing in Swindon.

I too have ended up doing mainly my husbands as my brother is doing ours. I think hasty marriages are common and even living with someone who you are not married to even though you claim you are on the census. After all if you are living in a different town who is going to say different and likewise bigamy was easy till there was more communication between counties.
