I am a direct descendent of George Fane and Ann Childs and have been looking for ages for any info on them. They are very hard to find such as on the 1881 census I discovered that, perhaps due to a transcription error, they are down as 'Fame'.
My stomache gave a lurch when I saw their names and wonder, are you also descended from George and Ann? I have been collecting info on the family and have several names now - the family continues to get bigger!
I would be really pleased to hear from you and maybe exchange details with you.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Julie Elphick nee Fane
