Smile Re: Introduction

Hi everyone. I live in New Zealand and most of my ancestors came here a long time ago. The Johnstones came from Shetland, the Masons and Rowsells from Somerset, the Gridgemans and Fentons from Cambridgeshire, the Larkins and Milgates from Sussex and the Carrans from the Isle of Man. I'm really looking forward to sharing information and hopefully knocking down some of my own brick walls.

Re: Introduction

Hello! I'm a disabled photographer living in Kent. Moved from USA to UK 28 years ago. I have 2 children - my daughter is a ballet dancer/teacher living in California and my son (works in software support) lives with me..he's just about to get married to an American girl.
My daughter recently came back to UK for her degree graduation ceremony in London and mentioned there is a statue of one of our ancestors in London...so we started digging and found it's not a statue but a family tomb (on my father's side) belonging to William Sedgewick Saunders who was Chief medical Officer for the City of London and was the person that body parts of the victims of Jack the Ripper were sent for autopsy!!
My cousin has done the fraternal side of the family tree so we started researching my maternal side. I have an old handwritten family tree of the Stafford family going back to Ralph Stafford which was mysteriously stopped when the geneaologist was paid a very large sum of money to stop doing the tree! My grandmother always said there was a usurper to the family lands and titles!! We are trying to establish the link to my great great grandmother Elizabeth Ellen Stafford with the Staffords in the handwritten family tree. I've hit a brick wall trying to find Elizabeth's father's parents and grandparents. Several of my cousins also have copies of the written family tree. Any help would be appreciated
