I'm in England and i'm researching my Partridges who lived in Gloucestershire (1500s-1800s) and Devon (1600s-today)

A number of them emigrated to Canada and U.S during these dates,are there are of you out there who have traced your ancestors back to places like Lapford,Nymet Rowland and Down St Mary or surroundings areas in Devon or are you part of the rich 'Wishanger' Partridge family of Gloucestershire who also lived in places such as Sheepscombe,Stroud,Birdlip and surrounding areas of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire.

Im interested in adding any Canadian or American cousins to my family tree

Hi, My maiden name is Partridge.  My grandfather was Henry Edward Partridge (b. 1900) in East Brighton, Sussex. His father was Charles Edward Partridge (1873-1944), b. in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and his mother was Emily Hillman (1872-1920), b. in Sussex.  Henry married Alice Dorothy Aishford, daughter of Joseph James Aishford from London (St. Luke) and Ethel Jane Rapson also of London (Islington).

 I'm Canadian and have done most of my research on Ontario families, so I have found it challenging with my British ancestors to get the parishes straight with the civil jurisdictions! It doesn't work that way here in Ontario! lol

If any of you are researching Partridge's in the Cheltenham area or have experience reearching in that area, I would love to hear from you!

Hi, everyone! I'm researching the Partridge family. My line starts at: Margaret Jane Partridge b 1870 in Kemper County, Mississippi. I've linked her to John W. Partridge b 1855/56 in Mississippi. His parents I'm not sure of, but in the 1880 census it's listed the father born in Alabama and the Mother born in Mississippi. If anyone has any ideas or is doing any research on Partridges in Mississippi, I'd love to hear anything!
