Donovan Family

13th October 2017

Laura Martin-Hughes:

Hello Mike,

Great to see your posts, I wish I had checked more recently! I am descended from Susanna, daughter of Susannah Williams and Daniel Donovan and my research mainly concerns her line. From which sibling do you descend? I would be very pleased to receive any information and to assist you too if possible.

Thanks,

Laura

James Williams:

Hello Mike,

It's great to hear from you.

I have a great deal of info on the Donovans and would be only too pleased to share it with anybody connected with them.

I could be contacted initially by email (jigsawjimwilliams@aol.co.uk) and possibly by phone as I don't live yoo far away (Folkestone).

Please don't hesitate to get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you and your aunt as we are presumably related.

Kind regards,

James Williams (Jim)

Donovan Family

10th October 2017

James Williams:

Hello Laura,

I am absolutely delighted that you have replied to my post.

The descendants of Susanna have been a stumbling block in my Donovan research. I have some information relating to the Wooleys but given your comments that George used the name Mitchell would probably make my information suspect.
Perhaps we could communicated via email to exchange information (mine is:- jigsawjimwilliams@aol.co.uk).
If this suggestion is acceptable please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

James Williams (Jim)

John Comport

9th October 2017

Pat Argar:

I am looking for any information about John Comport - he was born in 1786 and lived in Northiam - he died in 1848. He appears to have been born in Kent. I wonder why he came to Northiam. He was a Unitarian I think.

Donovan Family

6th October 2017

Laura Martin-Hughes:

Hello James,

Thanks for your recent post and kind offer. I have been researching the Donovans for some time but would be delighted to exchange notes. You are correct, I am descended from Susanna and George, who later used his father's surname of Mitchell, rather than Woolley from his mother. Their youngest daughter Rosa was my Great Grandmother.

Donovans of Rye

9th September 2017

James Williams:

From James Williams.
I am related to Sarah Mahala Donovan who was born in Rye in 1852. I posted a request for any information on the DONOVANS about 4 years ago and monitored the Message Board fo several months with no results. However a week ago I checked the Message Board again and was surprised to see 2 posts relating to the DONOVANS ( one by Mike Donovan and another by Laura Martin - Hughes). The posts were 1 and 2 years old when I found them and I have posted 2 replies to them with the hope that they might look on the message Board at some time and with that in mind I will continue to monitor the site

Does anyone know who owns the parking spaces opposite Eagle House and the ones adjacent? Any contact details would be great as it's getting out of hand! Thanks,

Hello Mike.
By chance I happen to look on the Rye Message Board and saw your post.
Over the past year I have done considerable research on the Donovan Family and would be more than happy to exchange any information with you.
