At the bottom of each RootsChat page in the brown section under "Your Tools" is a section "Surname Interests".  In this section you can put your own surname of interests and check if anyone else is researching the same names.
Sometimes people find this quite helpful.  ;)

Happy New Year

Hi Tim
Nice to have you back.  I am just doing a little more work on Charles' descendants You probably have it any way but would be good to share notes.  I am not sure how we do private messaging or exchange e mails on this site  but yes life would be easier.

Hi Tim
Thank you for your post. I don't think our Ewins' were rich enough to have gravestones although I have been in contact with someone else who says there is a gravestone  in Easthampstead with just JE on it and she likes to think it stands for James Ewins. I am not sure who would be the contacts down there for the church records I would willingly pay for a transcript (within reason).  My branch of the family were in Easthampstead between say 1815 and 1865 but when James died in 1857 his wife Ann (Crop) soon entered another relationship with a neighbour, had another child and moved to London with her remaining children a few years later.  This week I will also contact Ash to see what the connection is to Ewins Close.  More later in the week.

Hi Tim
Yes I have always included Charles as James and Maria Deadman's son. I have all their other children and their families too if you would like them. James is the son of Thomas and Ann of Ash as you say.  It was only yesterday I discovered Ewins Close. What a coincidence. James had siblings George and Jemima and probably John. There may be others.
James (the brother of your ancestor Charles) was killed when a wall he was working on in Easthampstead Park on the Windsor Estate fell on him.
I am in close contact with Anne who is Charles and James' sister Caroline's descendant.
James Ewins (1823) had a several children. His son George joined the Army soon after his father died and was married in India. George had 4 sons and 4 daughters. His third son Edward was my grandfather.
I have found many variations of Ewins which has made searching very difficult but I am ok with James and Maria's family. 
I envy your nearness to the Record Office in Reading I think we can provide you with a list for investigation.

Yes I am still actively researching my Ewins roots.  I believe Charles (1827) is the son of James Ewins and Maria Deadman.  My ancestor James is his elder brother born 1823.  Since joining this site so many years ago online censuses have made research easier and I have gathered lots of information I can share with you.  I know that Charles was married to Harriet ... and they had children Caroline, Charles and Alice. I know young Charles had 7 children, 5 of whom were alive in 1911 Albert, Nellie, Charles Alfred, Bertha and Stanley Herbert so I guess you are a descendant of one of the sons. 

Please feel free to ask me anything about James and Maria's family I will try to help if I can.
My difficulty is I am miles away from Berkshire so unable to look at original sources but over the years I have been in contact with a good number of family members who have been able to fill in many gaps.

Thanks for the census info, Sheila.  It certainly gives me more food for thought. I wonder if Mary Stevenson is a lodger or a relative?  I was pretty sure that  all the family  were born in the Bolton/Farnworth area.  I wonder if. as newcomers to the area they were considered  "foreign" to the county?......
I will press on. Thanks again

Lancashire Lookup Requests / 1841 James Chadwick, Manchester
« on: Tuesday 22 November 05 09:58 GMT (UK)  »
Could someone please do a look up on Manchester 107/0571/6/~F5, I am looking for James and Mary Chadwick (both born c 1817)and family.  I am interested in an address as I am trying to trace James' father who was probably Grundy Chadwick living in Manchester at  the same time.
Thank you in anticipation

Thanks again Sue.  John is never Jonathan again on any of the subsequent censuses so that is a surprise.  Also the age is more likely to be correct when he is only 6 (maybe) so the information you give me certainly gives me food for thought. I will do a new posting to see if I can get an address using the reference you kindly provided - and perhaps find Grundy nearby.

Thanks for looking, Sue.  He is named Grundy on the IGI for his birth and marriage and also  I have his death certificate so I am pretty sure it's the right name.  I  know from the IGI that he had a daughter, named Mary Chadwick. I have found his daughter in law Mary Chadwick  with Grundy's son (hopefully) James living at 251 Bengall Street Manchester  in 1851.  I wonder if you can see if they were on the Index for 1841.  James Chadwick was born c1817 in Bolton, Mary  also c1817 in Bolton children would be John (1837) and James (1839) both born in Bolton.  subsequent children were born in Manchester after 1841 James was an Engineer
I really am grateful for your interest
