Ahhh.... Apologies as I was editing too which doesn't show up on the home page  ;D  ::)

Ok, so Christian died 1869 i.e. you need to find out what her marital status was back in 1851?

And of course the details for 1841 regarding where Alexander was, where born (Y or N) & occ.

Thanks for this!

Just reading this old thread about the Sharps

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=286748.0;PHPSESSID=ak9ugvuqpcjm4mufrfkcahn126

Wow, this is going back the furthest I've experienced in my Ancestry to date.   

Usually I'm stuck at Irish records late 1790s on my Sherry side..

Yes for a base to start a new project.  I had a look on Ancestry this evening and the Clackmannan Sharps seem to be popular for members there.

Most have got the Sharps back to 1585. However I will take the information with a pinch of salt as looking at the information without my own eyes on the records, people are showing up with Sharps marrying Sharps etc.   Perhaps cousins..  I hope..

The furthest Sharp I currently see on Ancestry is:

John Sharp ( 1585- 1606 )

Married

Elizabeth Hunter (1589 -1616)

Clackmannan still the location of the Sharps.

If information is correct then Im at 10th GG level.
