A few weeks ago I asked if anyone would be able to help with information on Ann Burley and help arrived via Roger Harris, who I put in contact with Pat Sleator from Western Australia.
Pat had the following to say
“We had spent a lot of years looking for information on our great grandmother Ann Burley. All we knew was that she was born in Bapchild. After she married my great grandfather there were a lot of moves and the family ended up in the north of England. “
"Since contacting your web site I have received so much help from Roger Harris and he is also now a family friend even though there is a great distance between us."
"We now know the date of Ann's birth, her parents and family and their offspring names, occupations etc. We have gone from knowing almost nothing to having a wonderful picture of the family."
“So thank you to your website. It is hard to do research from so far away. Roger has even sent picture of Bapchild Parish Church. Now our goal is to visit Bapchild.”
“Once again Thank you for your help.”
Pat's orginally only had the following to go on.
Ann Maria Burley was born in 1833 and the 1881 census shows her birthplace as Bapchild. She married Henry Childs in Milton(Swale) in 1857. The couple moved a lot but in approx. 1870 went north to Lincolnshire for work.
