Hi I am a Whitcher from the new forest, just wanted to say that it is very difficult to find things out about our family because they are so secretive, and records were not kept back then. Most of the older generations were born and lived in the forest in benders after being rounded up and put there by the counsil, and yes we are English romany travellers :) Sorry I could not have been of more help.
