Hi Romany Knaves.

I am wondering why 1891/TREEBY is included in this list ?

AFAIK all my TREEBY relatives can trace their lineage back to Devon.
Yes they moved about because they often worked for the Military in civilian roles.

Please can you direct me to the source document ?

TIA

Hi Romany knaves,
Do you know anything about the Stone Family I know they used to stay in Kent often for the hop picking? Also Witney/Webb and Livermore they are all my direct relatives, I know my Great Nan that was a Alice Stone be for Marrying my Great Grandfather Walter Witney/Webb Walters Mum was Mary Ann Livermore & his dad was John Witney/Webb but I can't find much more out about them?
I know Alice Stone told my Dad she remembers walking to Kent for the Hop picking & that was from the Eastwood Bohemian Estate in Essex. and the Little Totham Plains in Essex & The Livermore side were between Kent Essex & Cambridge mainly.
Thanks Michael

Hi,
I'm wondering if you have any information on the PURDUE family, as I was surprised to see the name included on your above list.
My husband's mothers maiden name was Purdue, & her family came from Maidstone.
I & my husband are very interested as I myself, come from a travelling background. (Cunningham, Hull/Grimsby) My great uncle was VC John Cunnigham, from Hull.
We dont know much on my husbands side & would like to know more, if anyone has any information.
Kind Regards Cat
