Syrett Family of Mersea Essex
« on: Friday 28 December 18 18:37 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm trying to trace the parents of Maria Syrett who was born in 1818, married a William Grainger from Gosport, Hants in the mid 1830s and died in Colchester in 1879. I understand that the Syretts were an old East Coast family, but Maria's birth details and the names of her parents have alluded me. Can anyone assist please? Many thanks.

Hi,

At the bottom of each RootsChat page in the brown section under "Your Tools" is a section "Surname Interests".  In this section you can put your own surname of interests and check if anyone else is researching the same names.
Sometimes people find this quite helpful.  ;)

Happy New Year
