It appears the great or great great grandfathers have not received as much attention as the great grandmother thread.

Hopefully, we can give them this second opportunity.

Mabb/Mabbe, Bellamy, Selley, Martha Smith, Arno (of Dartmouth, Devon}.

The ancestors lived here and there, in many scattered
places, with various occupations

Well, here's mine:

John CAWTHORN, bn Christchurch, Cambs - manager of the village Co-Op stores, and enumerator on the 1891!  Also very involved with local Methodist Chapel.

Walter SCOTT - also bn Christchurch - this is my runaway Gt Grandfather; he disappeared in about 1904 leaving his wife and 3 young children.  Legend has it that he went to Canada with the local school mistress!

Louis Henry PALMER - bn Methwold, Norfolk - engineer, millwright and Chief Engineer with the Wisbech Fire Brigade

Charles SCALES - bn Norton End, Baldock, Hertfordshire - occupation Shunster, Great Northern Railway.

Have managed to get back another 2-3 generations with these lines - with a lot of help :)
