Hello peeps ;D
I am now researching another branch of the family tree. I spend so much time on this it's a wonder I manage to go to work!! This time it is the Stretch family. They come originally from the Wiltshire area but I think that some of them ended up in Liverpool and Westminster, London. Edward Stretch(a grocer - thank god for sensible jobs) married a Rebecca or Rebekah (no surname) in 1710. They had five children - Thomas b1711, Mary b 1713, Betty b1720, John b1726 (John is my ggggggrandfather) and Dennis b1732. Edward and Rebecca both died in 1744. It is Thomas' line that I am most interested in. He had a son Edward b1734 who also had a son Edward b1775. He married somebody called Ann, don't know when or where, they had two sons Edward b 1809 and Drew b 1811 and a daughter Annie b 1814. All were born in Westminster, London. Drew then managed to find his way north and get married (not necessarily in that order!) as I am fairly sure that he had a son named Drew b1846 in Liverpool. Are you confused? :confused: Good - so am I!!

Hi Dave, :)

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have already tried Familysearch and they didn't have much more info than I've already got. So, I will try the other links that you gave me. Hopefully I'll be a ble to delve a bit deeper. Watch this space!!! >:D

Am just starting to look for Stretch family of Liverpool. My great grandfather
Joseph Stretch arrived in Prince Edward Island Canada in 1856, and outside of
spotty records and failing memories this is all I know. I led to believe that
my GGgrandfather owned or managed a pub in Liverpool.
