Hello everyone who wants to know more about my 4th Greats Sentenia and Esau Smith. I have got the family tree done and anyone who wants any help please contact. My DNA was H1A PLUS, which means that my family came from southern Asia, Sentenia and Esau was cousins. Esau parents was Nehemiah and Rhoda Boswell. Sentenia parents was Woodfine smith and Sarah Boswell, sister to Rhoda. My Romany route is amazing on my tree, as my greats both romany great grandfather is from the Thomas Smith And Sarah Smith who is vagrants from North Marsden who sons are jasper Smith moses Smith ect. Would like to know if anyone is the same match to me on my DNA, and wants anyhelp with the tree If the same as mine.

I'm trying to find out about a Rebecca smith who was born around 1845 in Milton Surrey.  Well in one census she say Milton and another says Epsom. Her birthdate is a guess as we can't find her baptism anywhere!!! In 1901 we have her with her other half ( can't find marriage ) Joseph James and their children . If anyone has a Rebecca from that time please let me know, we've been searching for years !!

I'm interested in Smith/ Holland gypsies. My great grandmother Annie Hadwin born 1875 Leigh, was presumed to be Romany. She and my great grand father Charles Halsall took in a boy called William Holland in Southport born  in 1925. Annie's mother was Jane Smith from Kendal born 1837. I have found a family that fits but no Romany links as yet.  There was mention of links to a Gypsy Queen. I wonder if Henty Smiths family moved anywhere up to Kendal. ??
