Update Note (11 Nov 2006) - I've changed my email address due to the number of spam messages received each day now (50 or so). Hopefully I've updated all the email links on this site to reflect the changes, but if you get message like 'spammers get lost' try again replacing 'john@' with 'home@' or search for another email link on the website. Sorry for any inconvenience.
This site has been created to bring together the results of my researches into my ancestors. I have been slowly (at times very slowly) gathering together the information from various sources including others I have been in contact with who have common ancestors.
There are four trees which lead to each of my grandparents who were:
William Charles Packham and Sarah Ann Phyall Wenn
William Harold Seymour Bond and Jessie Dorothy Bayliss
By choosing one of the surnames under Family Pages (left index) you can browse up and down the generations via the links. Each family has it's own page showing the parents and children in each family with notes where I have further details. To get an idea of where the family sits in the overall ancestry take a look at the family trees which are listed below in the index and then choose the appropriate one on the left.
Of course there are more than just the four surnames involved in the family tree. The following list shows which surnames (direct ancestors) occur on which family trees. Other surnames can be found on the Search page.
There are some further details about the families in general available in the More Info page (click button left). Photos from the Packham/Wenn/Rowing/Pooley side of the family have been available for a while and I have just added some from the Bond/Bayliss.
If you have any comments or can add detail please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
