Great to hear from you.

The Rucks probably came from Hereford where I did find tha one of them was a Blacksmith.

They gradually moved south and spent quite some time around Orcop, and Garway I believe that Amos was in Llangattock Vibon Abel in 1901 and 1911 and believe that he is burried in the same graveyard as Henry Royce.

His daughter Laura was my great grandmother.

Around Orcop were the Jones, Williams and Meadmore families all of which are related to Amos and Laura, in fact there were two Williams sisters who married two Ruck brothers, Elizabeth Williams married Amos.  Her sister was called Laura and she married Amosís brother James.  I have seen an image of Laura Ruck nee Williams and she was the double of Grandma Evans.

I have only got back to Edward Ruck of 1818 with any degree of confidence, online records for Herefordshire are not as good as other Counties and unfortunately the Herefordshire Archives are a fair distance away from me.

If you are on Ancestry my family tree is there, pm me and I will send you a link.
