That's OK love!  Sorry, no Scottish ancestry yet.  And no Welsh to my surprise and disappointment.  I'm a fabulous singer you see, though I say so as shouldn't, so thought I must have Welsh blood!   ;D

I'm Welsh - can sing in tune when I try very hard :) My greatest saddness :'( :'( :'(
My mother, of Scottish descent had a beautiful voice.

My mother always stated strongly that she was descended from the family of Captain James Cook, navigator extraordinaire!

Unfortunately I have pretty well disproved it.  There was an Eleanor Cook way back in the lines (unrelated) and a seafaring strain, but nothing to do with the good Captain!  :( :(  Would have been nice! 8)

Other family stories mostly have been pretty right.

 Hi Marie C
 
 My wife and I were married in the same church as Captain Cook, Saint Margaret's in Barking.

       Hi Mrslizzy

       Have not been back for some years as moved away, Church was very old lots
       of history.
       Many interesting stories on this post. Iam sure the Denmark rumour is true
       as my wife and I have found relatives we never knew about and have been in contact
       with them, the same rumour exists.

Last time I was there was several years ago - I used to be in the choir of St Mary the Virgin, Great Ilford under the baton of Mr Gorman.  We never used to play HIM up, I can tell you!  :o
