Aww Bless!  Poor kid  lol

I used to to go to school with a little lad called Olly.  I'd always assumed he was called Oliver. It was,t till years later i found out his name was Orsen.  Just a shame his surname was Cart.    I could never understand his parents mentality.

 Miharena Buckland,  Britannia Stokes Buckland, Tryphena Buckland,  Timothy Turnit Buckland, Freedom Buckland......

Timothy was a tinsman (Gypsy, TInsman, Brazier) and his wife's name was Peenels all of these are ancestors of my sister in law... she also has a Leas Buckland ::) we don't know is Leas a he or a she??????

I would be delighted to have some unusual names.... at least then I might be on the right track ! ... I mean to say if I come across any more Johns and Marys, Daniels and Peter!


ah well one day the wall will crash down... I live in hope !

Best wishes
