The following is a draft of my Ellicott ancestors. I live in England and
am unable
to research the American "end". Would appreciate any comment,
corrections or additions
from anyone in America connected with this family. My interest is
limited to the
persons mentioned, their brothers and sisters and the dates of birth of
siblings children. Also I would appreciate any details of their wills
(if made).
