Hi Kath
I have SIMS family on my husbands side from Lancashire, mine is Humphrey, he was a convict born in 1834, sent to Australia as a convict in 1856. He named his son James, so the name was in the family and his middle name was James. I noticed that your message is quite old, so have you found out any more info on your family.?
Love to hear from you
Regards
Helen

Hello
thank you for your message.
I have very little info on the Kay family but loads on the Sims.
However I have not found any Sims named Humphery although I do have Sims in Australia.
My tree is on Ancestry and Genes Reunited perhaps it may be worth your while taking a look if you can.
I have traced my family back to London in 1780,they moved to Lancashire about 1830. My gggg grandfather was a customs and excise officer but many of the others where french polishers indeed the family french polishing business traded from about 1860 until just after the second world war.

Not sure what else to tell you ,bye for now Kath
