From on Friday, 11 July, 2008
It was by chance that I came upon your Website that contains, amongst other interesting links, a reference to the Furneaux family - my family name.
I am related to Henry Furneaux married to Mary Hill of Staverton and also William Furneaux son of Ann Bradridge and William Furneaux who in turn married Mary Browse.
I can see you have many lines of interest in your research and am wondering if you have any other references to the Furneaux family that you can allow me to view as I know some of my ancestors did emigrate to Australia and I would be interested to see what is traceable.
Many thanks
Lawrence W Furneaux, UK
