Dear Bernice,
Hi my name is Shona.I may not be of great help to you as I am in the same
situation.Trying to find out more on the KING surname.The KINGS I'm
researching : Edmund King from Sydenham Oxfordshire whom travelled out to
Australia in '1845'.
Though their was plenty to sugest their was Romani people around in
South of England with this surname.
If and when I find out more I will contact you and I am hoping you
do likewise. Best luck in your search.
Shona.
