Like you I have spent many years researching my family and I
can tell you that my great grandfather, Henry Knights
married Mary Ann Davey in 1877. Mary Ann was the daughter of
James Davey born in Saxstead, Suffolk in 1836. He was the son
of John Davey and Mary Meadows of Saxstead. I have traced the Meadows family back to 1702 when Robert Meadows married a
Mary Thranson in 1727 and lived in the village of Monk Soham.
Somehow the " s " in my family name of Knights got dropped
when I was born which made life a bit difficult when searching the past.
Would like to hear more from you or help you with more
info. should you wish to extend contact.
My best regards to you
