During the last few weeks I’ve been working on one of my long standing brick walls. Having researched my Sarginson relatives back to the mid-1800s I have been working on taking his line further back. I am now fairly confident that I have worked out who my five times great grandfather was. One of the challenges has been multiple possible spellings of the surname and that I found another couple with similar names. I intend to write Elias’s story in the next few weeks.
My next brick wall is in one of my grandmother’s ancestors: the Barrett’s. It turns out that this can be spelled multiple ways too, including Barot and Baret. I feel another visit to an archive coming on!
