Name: BENNETTS/ HUNT FAMILY
Comment: Hi I am researching Bennetts/ Hunt families from Datchet, Bucks (and also nearby Windsor). Eliza Bennetts born approx. 1806 in Datchet was my 3 x great grandmother, married to Thomas Hunt. The Hunt's who were also from Stepney moved to Whitechapel, Middlesex to conduct Cheesemonger/ Grocery/ Wholesale Provisions business. Please do contact me if you are also researching this family. Great website, well done Mr Quick and BGS! Thank you Hilary

Name: Larry Taman
Comment: I am a Canadian living in France. My ancestors are Tamans and Tarmans from Buckinghamshire, some of whom came to Canada with the 100 Foot to fight in Quebec and then later in Upper Canada in the War of 1812. They received land in return for continuing engagement and settled in what is now Ottawa and surrounding districts. Some parts of the family stayed there, while others fanned out across the country. I would be most grateful for anyone who has information about Tamans and Tarmans in Bucks. An early ancestor is Joseph Taman b. 1728 Dunton, married to Elizabeth Kirby. I think that it is his descendants who came to Canada. Many thanks for your help.

Comment: Hi I live in Perth Scotland so find it difficult to visit Bucks. My wife's ancestry is from the Bucks Williamsons. Her g2gf was John Williamson buried Pitstone 3 Mar 1844 aged 47. I believe his parents to be John & Mary Williamson of Seabrooke but cannot prove it. A gravestone inscription might provide vital evidence. Mary was buried Pitstone 4 Feb 1821 aged 57 and husband John on 11 Oct 1844 aged 76. Can anyone help? I understand from Genuki that your library has Pitstone details.
