Are you still looking for info on the Pond family of Blandford Forum?
My Grandmother was Edith Laura Pond and I know a little of the family history in BF, starting with three brothers leaving London to escape the Great Plague in 1665.
And going back just a little further, if her stories are to be believed, coming over to England  from Normandy in 1066.

I am very interested in early history of the Pond Family of Blandford. My ancestor, Ann Pond married John Simmonds and they immigrated to Australia. Ann was the sister of William Pond the grandfather of Edith Laura "your grandmother" My records go back to William Pond who married Ann Fowler in 1773 in Wyke Regis
Perhaps you could attach some details in a reply. I am happy to attach any of my research into the Pond family if you have any questions.

I guess that makes us some form of cousin, so hi cousin.
Somewhere I have a family tree that she wrote out on the back of a large envelope, it might take me a long time to unearth it, but when I do I will find a way to send you a copy.
My sister is the one more interested in our various ancestors so I'll show her your kind offer.
Life is full of regrets and one of mine is that I didn't ask more questions while they could be answered, but EL did leave a number of diaries which my sister keeps. I'll ask her if there are any titbits that will be of use to you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the old country
