Catt Family

29th November 2017

James Williams:

Hello Mahina,

I just noticed your post relating to the Catts and Hiders and realised that I am connected to them by way of Eliza Dunn who was married to George Arthur Medhurst.

I have had problems tracing George after 1914 when, along with 3 of his children, he seems to disappear from all records.
I wonder if you, or anybody else in your family, might possibly have some information relating to George after 1914.
Should you be able to help I wonder if you could get in touch with me. My email address is: jigsawjimwilliams@aol.co.uk

I look forward to hearing from you.

James Williams

Donovan Family

26th October 2017

James Williams:

Hello Laura,

This is a follow-up to my previous post. Since my original post in reply to yours I have searched for descendants of Susanna and have found several which might or might not be correct. I would therefore appreciate any help you could give me to enable me to get the correct descendants attached to Susanna. If you could email me (jigsawjimwilliams@aol.co.uk) with your email address I could send you a database of the descendants of Daniel Donovan & Susannah Williams then you could correct any errors you think I might have.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Kind regards,

James Williams (Jim)

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.
