Hello fellow Historians,
Most of my present family of FRANCIS, have mostly lived in the County of Surrey, but in the 19th century their dwellings were In London? I have traced my lineage to Clun in Shropshire, England, with still away to go; to the early 18th Century. I located a ancestor with the name Richard Francis, who married a lady (May 31, 1761) to Sarah Squire? but the most interesting lineage is Welsh; or on the borders of Wales?
Located a marriage of John Francis of Fordon, who married Elizabeth Price of Guilsford, Wales at a place called Castle Ceaereinion, Montgomeryshire, Wales in February 17, 1723?
John Francis was born in 1698: Elizabeth Price was born in 1694, her baptism was August 26, 1694 & died in 1746: her Baptism was in Bangor-is-Coed, Flint, Wales.
Her Father was John Price; Mother Demisene?
Once child: John
I myself personally has spent most of my life on ships? Born in England; military 3 years until a bad accident? Then 38 years on Commercial Shipping. I have health problems & look after my wife, who has problems walking? Hard for me to get around myself? now reside in California, in the San Fernando Valley.
Appreciate anybody who has insight & completed some research in this area. Look forward to those who are interested in genealogy?
Son: John Francis Born: About: 1804: Baptism: October 21, 1734 Norfolk, St.Stephens, England.
