Wow, Debbie, a real wealth of info to add to my tree - thank you so much for
this huge effort!
Must point out that the Edward FORD info included below is not the son of my
James Edward FORD (from London), who was with BAILIE's party. There was
another Edward FORD who came out with FORD's party (just to confuse us
properly!) from Wiltshire.
Again, my grateful thanks - your fingers must be worn to the bone!
