Hi Dave,Thanks for prompt reply.message was really intended for Gomerd as he has lots of info. on my MATHIAS line but he hasn't responded to my queries as to where he fits in! I am a descendant of Ann Fawke's(nee Mathias)brother Joseph. His daughter Martha married her cousin James LLewellin and ended up in Neath, West Glam, where I was born and brought up. Their grandson Edward (My grandfather)spent much of his childhood with them as his mother died when he was young, he passed on lots of family info to me and got me hooked on family history.Just picked up Fawke thread again recently as had a message from a descendant of Mary Maria. I have a family bible listing descendants of BENJAMIN and Ann.Have visited Southport to see where they lived and burial places. Annie Fawke their daughter married a relative, Rev John Skittery, I am in contact with Skittery family, living in farm close to 'Flights' - they appear to be the only family with this surname in Britain! Would love to see a copy of your family tree and happy to pass on all info I have. e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will copy all relevant info and photos etc and send to you if you give me an address - can only get dial up where we live so sending jpegs is not an option!
look forward to hearing from you,
