Remember that mistakes are made and the data you collect from ANY web source, including family sites and links, or Census data, could contain errors: including this one!
We have found this out on several family members because we have source or copies of source documents.

Richard T Croker has just found a 3rd cousin via the Web and an email query: (a HOY)
and helped to correct a link in with another 19th century family (EVERSHED):
See their web pages at
Evershed Family. Go to The Eveshed Family, then Downloads.

I now have more 'cousins' found via the web, in New Zealand, Canada and United States. (Common ancestor name is HOY)

Arrol (NZ) site is at Arrol Family. Then go to My Database.

Brown (Canada) site is at :- Brown Family.
