Due back to work Monday. I am in a large secondary school and prior to half term we had our highest number of positive cases ever.  For those who have agreed vaccinations will begin in the next week but those who tested positive will not be included so as yet I do not know the uptake numbers.
 I am double jabbed as are the rest of family and had my flu jab last week.....arm ached after that one.  Staff all seem to be wearing masks around the building it is not a problem. As for shops I HATE SHOPPING which my husband now says is a good thing as I could pre-covid shop for England. So many not mask wearing and if someone coughs I back up a mile, best times are late for food shop less people.
 As for Christmas I hope we can meet up. It will be our first Christmas without Dad so its going to be hard on Mum. Looking to have 8 of us on the day so I will shop as soon as I can before everywhere gets busy.


 Had a look at the trees on Ancestry and they are all filled with guesses and pot luck entries...

 Ie  John Plowman born 1665 source given.
                           Baptised 13 Jan 1665 Whitney Oxfordshire source via Ancestry Oxfordshire baptisms father Edward Plowman alias Wright.
          Son Jonathan born 1688 born North Yorkshire
       Married Elizabeth Lianer 25June 1691 at St Mary's Teddington, Richmond upon Thames source London marriages...states of Kingston
     Death 1710 Northamptonshire.

 Found the record of sailing to America arrival in Virginia 1700.

 A lot of further work on this one.


Hi. Welcome to Rootschat.

We need more back ground here. Looking at findagrave  website it reads....

 Elizabeth Lianer Plowman birth 1663 England.
 Death 12th Sept 1710 England burial details unknown. It gives her husband as John Samuel Plowman 1661-1712 and son as Jonathan Plowman 1688-1747.

Does any of that match your timeline? Where do the details of Jonathan being a 12 year old servant come from?
