Hearing about your experience is very enlightening, thank you bridgewatergirl. It has made me understand my family better I think, and although Iíve heard some stories about them, I now see that they probably werenít as different as I originally thought.  :)

I've known someone who believed, in error, he later discovered, that sloppy reading of a family entry where someone became Non-conformist (Methodist) whilst living in Plymouth was interpreted as having " joined the Plymouth Brethren" - sounded much more interesting, I imagine! Could have been something as simple as that?

I have no idea where the whole thing started, I'd never even heard of the Plymouth Brethren before this. It sounds like a word of mouth thing, although how many mouths it has gone through and exactly whose... Our family has pulled a few strange ones out of the woodwork here and there, many of which have been adamantly disputed by other family members. What's the collective noun for a group of family historians? Tempted to say a "research" if unrelated... if the same family possibly an "argument"  ;D
