Charles Bright born Leighton 21 December 1824
« on: Saturday 28 August 04 10:32 BST (UK) »
Been searching for this ancestor for years. I understand Leighton Montgomeryshire later became Worth Shropshire -- after Charles Bright's birth.
(He lived most of his life around Ellesmere, Salop.)
Any links out there?
