Have just started researching my family tree and was fascinated to stumble on this discussion thread.
My grandfather Laurence Watson is son of Edwin Watson and Mary EKINS of Brampton.
Mary is daughter of William EKINS (b 1821 Eaton Socon) and Emily Clarke.
William is son of Thomas EKINS (b 1791 Old Hurst) and Ann NAME NOT KNOWN)
Thomas is on of Benjamen EKINS and Anne BARNES
If you know how my relations fit in with your EKINS and can give me any further info I would be very Grateful
