Hello Laurence,

I am related to all the Merritts you have listed through Edward Merritt 1731.

Michael Merritt
Born Chichester and now from
Elizabeth Park, South Australia

Hi Laurence

Could you give me a bit more info on your Merritt/Standing family please.

On my paternal side my 3xggf Thomas Merritt b c1812, Randwick, Gloucestershire.  He & his wife Harriett had seven children all born in Randwick.  My 2 x ggm Eliza Merrett married Alfred Bassett, also from Randwick.   Did any of your Merritts come from Gloucestershire area and move down to Sussex by any chance?

On my maternal side, my gm Ethel Standing b 1890 in Chithurst WSSx, her parents were Henry Standing (b1858 North Chapel) & Frances Kilhams (b 1856 Bury).  Henry's parents were James Standing (b 1821 NorthChapel) & Susanna Ayling (b1827 Petworth).

Look forward to hearing from you sometime.

Cheers from down under

Heather (Auck NZ)
