Major Announcement for 2011

1713 was as far back as we had got with the folk who started the Lankshear spelling of our surname- via this 1713 Robert LANCHISHEAR marriage to Frances DAWSON - the first marriage in linked tree

Well this year 2011 I've found the birth of  Robert 
1686 baptism Robert LANCHASHEIRE in Castle Cary, Somerset

and 1686 was also the year Frances Dawson was born so they were the same age when they married.....

I've been trying to get further back for Robert's parents and you can follow that search on the web pages themselves

So previously there were the LANKSHEAR families from Oxfordshire and the LANKESHEER families from Someset. Now we are all from Somerset. 

There are now Sharing icons available on the web pages.. So you can send to others interested in any pages about your family groups or post on Facebook etc....
Having a share by blogger icons enables me to quickly write a new blog page. Hence this current blog... You can follow these blogs through RSS feeds which I cannot set up for the web site itself.

Ann and William HORNER

My great grand Aunt Ann King married William Horner in 1850
I had found them in 1851 and also Ann's death in 1900
But inbetween I had not found.
My dear cousin Diane found them in 1881 and also was finding marriages etc of their children

In 1881 they were indexed as HOMER - so off I went and found 1861 as Horne and 1871 as Horner
and also William's death in 1890

here is the detail

HORNER - marriage of William to Ann KING sister of future Jane EAGLE

Many thanks to Diane who is a really big help in EAGLE research. Diane's father is my Uncle Ernie
who was a great opera singer and we used to have great musical parties with my father playing the piano.
