A very old thread is anyone still following?  Have been trying to find info on my paternal grandmother Rachel Mayne.

Ok...so I think I am joined to this as follows:

Robert Penfold b1816 m Amelia Page b1818
Their daughter
Elizabeth Penfold b1859 Dorchester d1925 Weymouth (m 1887) John Mayne b1856 Surrey
Their children
John Mayne b 1888 Swanage
Robert Mayne b 1888 Swanage
Elizabeth Mayne b 1891 Weymouth
Rachel Vera b1895 Weymouth d1947 Sydney Australia (m1918) Walter Percy Scott AIF in Chickerell
Patience b 1900 Wyke Regis

Can any confirm that I've go the right Elizabeth that married John Mayne?

Thanks,  Alison

New here and a very old thread but thought I would ask!
I just started researching my family tree on my maternal grandmothers side - she died about 30 years ago now but my Mum has always told a few stories which we didn't know were true or not. My gran had said she was born into a travelling family but her mother disappeared at an early age and she was raised by her father and grandparents who were not travellers and she also maintained that her parents were never officially married.
Anyway - last week I got hold of her birth certificate and did some digging - her parents are listed as William and Sophia Quick - nee Penfoe. They are listed in the 1901 census but by 1911 Sophia has disappeared. After much digging around it became apparent that this was obviously a transcribing error and that her name was Sophia Penfold. She was born in 1881 though I only have the fact that in 1901 she was listed as being 20. It makes sense therefore that she is the daughter of Thomas and Sophia Penfold (nee Orchard) and it would appear I am related to a few people on here.
Sadly I cannot find anything about what happened to her post 1901 - somehow doubt I ever will but if anyone has any info I would be happy to hear it
