From on Monday, 18 July, 2011
Hello,
I have been trying to trace my mothers family, and purely by chance came across the Pulham Family Tree. My grandmother was Violet Francis Pulham. I remember as a child our trips to Panmure to a very old house, which was probably where the family lived. My Mother's name was Charlotte Ellen Blight. My Granfather was Thomas Blight. I would love to know whatever you could tell me about the family. Thanking you in anticipation
Ellen Wright
