Family name Hovell?
« on: Thursday 10 January 19 19:10 GMT (UK) »
Anyone currently researching this name, particularly in the Norfolk area. My current branch starts in Leicestershire but quickly moves back to Norfolk and includes the "famous" William Hilton Hovell from Great Yarmouth. At this stage looking for like minded people no specific questions yet!

Welcome to Rootschat

Have you tried the Surname Interests Board in case anybody else is researching the name?

Hi

Yes there are about 50 entries but the most recent is from 2015, If this post fails I will try contacting people from that list to see if any of them are still looking.

Thanks for the heads up though.

Your link is brilliant, I had already found that and access from there to the Australian family.
