Light family
« on: Sunday 27 March 05 17:49 BST (UK) »
Great grandfather Richard Light was born in Longden upon Tern  . I wonder if anyone has access to the parish records for this village and could look up a birthbetween 1790 and 1800.
Thanks
Ringrose

That is new to me. I dont know Shropshire very well and did not realise that High Ercall was so near to Longdon. I think there are other Lights in High Ercall so they may possibly be my family. I will have another look at Family Search though I would need to check the registers.
Many thanks
