Topic: On This Day in ..... NOVEMBER
I reckon that I could fill up most of the calendar with the BMDs of my ancestors but it would be more fun if we all did it together, so come on - let's see if we can have at least one person's life celebrated for every day of the year.

Curses!  Had to go away for a couple of days, didn't take the lappy ... and have just now discovered that my FH software won't backdate so I can look up yesterday's anniversaries!

I have four Sarah Foyle's, and its the birthday of one of them today !   1798, born in Witchampton, Dorset.   There are dozens of Foyles/Foils and Fripps/Freeps, and I'm still trying to sort them .... they are connected to my Ambrose Trowbridges, but as there are three Ambrose's, you can see my difficulties ....

Why oh why didn't they have a greater variety of names ?
Dorset/Wilts/Hants: Trowbridge Williams Sturney/Sturmey Prince Foyle/Foil Hoare Vincent Fripp/Frypp Triggle/Trygel Adams Hibige/Hibditch Riggs White Angel Cake 
C'wall/Devon/France/CANADA (Barkerville, B.C.): Pomeroy/Pomerai/Pomroy
Som'set: Clark(e) Fry
Durham: Law(e)
London: Hanham Poplett
Lancs/Cheshire/CANADA (Kelowna, B.C. & Sask): Stubbs Walmesley
