Hi all

I have uploaded my people to a new tree on Ancestry and called it Downton Families, it can be found here: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/11921764/family

If anyone wants to be able to add edit etc let me have your e mails and I will 'invite' you on ancestry.

The Downton names in the list so far are:

Allen, Barrow, Brothers, Bryant, Chalk, Eastman, Hobbs, Hughes, Leopold (I think that may be an error), Light, Littlecott, Mogg, Moody, Mussell, Mussellwhite, Newman, Poore, Prince, Quinton, Shergold, Spratt, Witt and Woodward.

I hope we get lots of takers t could be a very useful resource for a lot of people.

Thank you

Hey Nicky,

My own research centres around the Eastman family lines at the moment.

I'm trying to search out Eastman marriages in the 1700s... I have a whole pile of guesses and assumptions, but I haven't been able to find anything that even resembles concrete.

I've got the 1500s, a tad of the 1600s but it's the 1700s that I'm stuck in.

The 1800s isn't an issue as my great-grandfather was born in 1885 (my grandmother's father) and his war records (which I have) has his parents on it and it was very simple to track his family.

I am also trying to seek out any more modern Eastmans who left Downton for other areas.

I have a Charles Poore who married Eliza Beaumont in Downton.
They had George Poore and Mary Ann Poore.
Charles later married Elizabeth Henderson after the death of Eliza.
In 1853 they came to Australia.

Hello Nicky


If you ever get the chance to go grave hunting I would appreciate any pics you could get of Honeywells, they were chair makers an basket weavers so perhaps a bit better off than ag labs so maybe they had headstones.

Anything I can do for you in return - ask
