I am looking for any one that comes down from the Ambrose Greenwell family (Ambrose Greenwell Jr. and Elizabeth Brindley Hill). They came for Duton Bassett,Leicester,England. They first settled in PA. Then came out west to Utah. My Gt Grandfather Francis was born on the way to Utah in 1859. He went back to England to serve a mission in 1883/84. At that time he looked up his own Grndfather who went back to England years before. My own grandfather was Thomas Ray Greenwell who was born in West Weber or what ever they called it in Weber Co. Ut. about 1888. I want to get past the year 1739 in Aston Flamville, Leicestershire,England for William Greenwell. Some one has got to have that information as it was plainly shown on a family tree at a family reunion that was held in Hayward California.1958. We all agree that it was there. However no one seems to know just where that information went and how it came to be there. Hope this get to some one in the Greenwell family that knows more then I do. All the old folks are gone now of my family accept My mother the last Greenwell by marriage of that era. She is 79 and only knows what was pasted down. Thank you all

Hi! I realize this reponse is a little late but I ran accross it cheking out some other items on the Greenwells. Ambrose and Elizabeth were my Great grand parents. I do have information about a William Greenwell. Tell me more about him to see if he is the one you are looking for. (You may have all the information you need by now.)

Doing my daughter-in-laws genealogy, I have her line back to Ambrose Greenwell, Sr. If you can help with this lineage would greatly appreciate it.

Garry, I have the following on ancestors of Ambrose Greenwell Sr. His father was John Greenwell, b 1761 Dunton Bassett, Leicestershire, England. He died 29 Dec 1835 at Dunton Bassett, Leicestershire, England. John's wife was Ann Foard (there are various spellings for Foard). She was born 5 Jan 1767 and died 3 Jan 1861. at Dunton Bassett, Leicestershire, England. They were married 26 Nov 1786. Source for this info. is from research that my mother did many years ago and it was all done by hand. I will need to look into where she got the information so you can verify what I have told you. I will get back to you on this,

There is a book titled Dunton Bassett A Village History. I am not sure if it is still avalable. It was devised and published by the Dunton Bassett Historical Group. My contact with them is via Wendy Warren who was chairman of the Dunton Basett Local History Group in 2006. They may have a copy available. It is and excellent book with many references to the Greenwell family. E-mail is wendy.warren5@tiscali.co.uk
