John Hurt's grandfather Walter Lord Brown was born to London parents. Now here is an Anc tree which has Walter's family listed. Not sure how accurate it is but one Anc tree says his gran was Sarah Lewington, and Sarah had a brother with Campbell as a middle name, which could indicate a family name. So John may have Scottish roots.

The Walter Lord Browne has been documented on WDYTYA, but as the title of this thread goes, the Lewington connection may be Ancestry tree rubbish.

They do make mistakes and a little thought and checking should give you the right answers.  People who just copy are not really interested - its just a little hobby.  I have on one tree gone back to 1605 and it has taken time checking and rechecking hints that are sometimes wrong.  I have a family born married, had children and died all in Nottinghamshire and I know it is all correct.  If a hint says somewhere else - its wrong and Anc should know that!!  Off topic another annoying thing Anc Private Messages.  "You have a ........  Can we exchange info and help each other".  Gladly and, and .....??
Got what they want and thats it.  So no longer bother answering them.  If I get stuck I come on Rootschat and maybe help others as well.

Have a Great New Year.

I have stopped contacting anyone on Ancestry.

I met two distant Cousins via Ancestry and we each helped each other then they both petered out.

Others I sent info to and they have used said info and even downloaded the family images I had posted without so much as a ... may I or thankyou.
