Thank you, Maddys 52.  It's been fun and helpful.  Yes, that Avatar is really cool.  I have nothing like that!

Thanks for the references Alan. I have sometimes used the Camdex search facility but have never ordered certificates through them (as they are a bit more expensive than the GRO).  ;)

Hi All
I'm also trying to find out about Thomas and Elizabeth , Anthony was my my ggg grandfather . I to cannot work out the if the two wives of Thomas  are different people or 1 and the same ? There does seem to be quite a strong link to Willingham through the ages , my grandmother was a Few also from Willingham , has anyone found out anymore about Thomas and Elizabeth ?
Regarding James and George they would be my gggg uncles .
If anyone is still researching this it would be good to share any information .
Thanks Mark

Hello Mark and welcome to roots chat! Good to "meet" another cousin.
Unfortunately I'm still at the same point in my research about Thomas and Elizabeth/Ann. I'm away from my computer for a few days, but would be happy to share any information when I get back.  :)

Hi Maddys52
Thanks for the reply , as I said before I believe Anne and Elizabeth to be the same person although no proof but the marriage of Thomas and Ann Cann in Willingham father Anthony , my grandmother was a Few who also came from Willingham ! I am descended through Anthony's son Alfred .
i was wondering if you've had your dna done as mine came back as 3% indigenous American ? How this happened I've no idea , I'm having a paternal test done to see which side of my family it originates from ! There does seem to be a strong military theme that runs through the Sykes family having had relatives in the army through the 1800's and beyond perhaps an ancestor served in the America's during the 1700's ?
Sorry , not adding much to the Thomas and Anne /Elizabeth mystery but will keep digging.
All the best Mark

Re Elizabeth Poole Witcham Coveney married James Sykes 18 May 1848.
I think there are 3 Elizabeths.
Elizabeth Poole 25 Dec 1831 dau John & Mary Poole
Elizabeth Poole 2 Nov 1828 dau Isaac & Mary Poole. (Hawes)
and
Elizabeth Poole fully bapt 30 Mar 1834 but born 1831 Coveney of John & Sophia. (Sanders)
aged exact 10 in 1841 with John and Sophia. freereg

This John and Isaac were brothers. Sons of John Poole and Mary Freeman
I suspect Elizabeth dau of John and Sophia is your Elizabeth.
This Elizabeth is the sister of my G Grand Mother Lettice Poole (Letia or Letitia etc)
who married Robert SLOTE
Let me know what you think.

Hi Fenboy , James who married Elizabeth Poole is the brother of Anthony Sykes who is my ggg grandfather we are searching for their father Thomas and his wife Elizabeth/Ann both born in the late 1700's . This is as far back as I can go with the Sykes name , where was Thomas from ? And is Elizabeth and Ann the same person ?
Thanks for the reply Mark

Hi Mark I think Thomas Sykes 29 Sep 1790 Fa Robert Mo Rebecca Elsworth
married Ann Cann 27 Feb 1816....Ann of Willingham
Anthony son of Thomas and Elizabeth 23 Aug 1818
Lucy dau  Thomas and Elizabeth 30 Sep 1821 .
Thomas son Thomas and Elizabeth 13 Jun 1824
James son Thomas and ANN 25 Jun 1827
George T & A 1829
William T & A 1831
Henry T & A 1834
John T & A 1836
The 1841 shows them all with T & A ( Anthony now with the Slacks in Soham)
So Ann Cann is also Elizabeth or (Thomas married Ann Cann who died and Thomas married Elizabeth who died and he married another Ann!)
