Surrey Completed Look up Requests / Re: Fladgate/Fludgate/Floodgate

Karen, hi:

Yes, my Fludgates appear to be from the Chertsey area and thereabouts. I, too, have often come across James Fladgate and the Daborn family. Their family tree appears to be well documented. But I have been unable to far to link in my ancestor, William Fladgate -- later known as Fludgate -- to that family. But I suspect the link is there. I just have to find it. I would love to be in contact with you to discuss possible links. Please e-mail me at email address removed by moderator to prevent spam - please use the Rootschat secure PM system for intitial contact

Look forward to hearing from you.

Whoops and dearie me. I am sorry to have trampled upon your sensibilities. I hope to tread lightly in all things. Meanwhile, isn't "gender" a grammatical construct? Do you mean to say you are of the other sex? A woman, perchance?

Your humble servant, ma'am.

Many thanks, Mr. Newbie. I know that I am related to a vast cousinage in the Berkshire/Oxfordshire heart of Anglo-Saxon England, with a few Normans sprinkled in. So I trust that some distant -- or otherwise -- rellie will shout my way.

Seeking any and all hints on the family connections of a man named William Fladgate, who appears to have been born around 1779 in or near Byfleet, Surrey. William married Jane Cox in Hackney, London in 180s. They became my 3X great-grandparents. The name later transmogrified to Fludgate, which was my mother's surname. Other rellies called themselves Floodgate. I think there is a connection, somehow, to the Fladgate family of Surrey, which is well documented. One sprig of that family helped found the Fladgate, Taylor and Yeatman wine firm of Portugal. But William's origins are still shrouded in mystery. My family tree -- still, of course, a work in progress -- is on line at I'd appreciate any and all clues or hints. I'd also love to chat with anyone who feels like yakking. Warm welcomes given to all cousins, distant and otherwise.

Greetings all:

I am delighted to find this smashing new tool for genealogy. I'm eager to talk with anyone interested in Berkshire/Oxfordshire links, particularly the villages of the Vale of White Horse, notably East Hendred. And warm welcomes given to anyone who thinks he/she might have family links. My family tree website -- a work, of course, in progress -- is on line at: Notable names: Hunt, Carter, Goodenough, Money, Wyatt, Lawrence, Kingston, Allen and on and on and on. Look forward to connecting with all and sundry.

Greetings John Rowley:

My grandfather's brother was Edward Hunt, born Dec. 31, 1881 in East Hendred, Berks. He disappears from history as a young man. Only rumors surround his whereabouts. Did he die in the trenches in WW1? Did he emigrate? We dunno. I think it possible he MIGHT be your Edward Hunt. The date could fit. Many men married much younger women. Interestingly, East Hendred is in the same neck of the woods as Draycot, Berks., which could bear some relationship to your DraycoTT ancestors, n'est-ce pas? If my Edward is, indeed, your Edward, then I can extend knowledge of his ancestry back to the late 1600s. Please consult my on-line family tree at: I look forward to hearing from you. Warm welcomes given to all cousins, distant or otherwise.
