Subject: [HRT] East Family Research
Date: Tue, 29 Dec 2009 21:16:40 +1100
I'm new to the list and I'm an East researcher from Australia. I have been trying for several years to find some info on my 3xgreat grandfather James East born circa 1809 in the UK. He arrived in Tasmania as a free settler about 1827, as far as I know he was on his own, no other family members with him. I have not been able to find a birth for my James.
I tried a different approach a few days ago, he had named his first daughter Ann Titmouse East, which I had always thought was a strange name to give a child. So I searched Titmouse marriages and found an Elizabeth Titmouse had married a John East (b circa 1775) on 20 May 1802 in GUILDEN MORDEN, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, ENGLAND. So I am thinking that this could very well be a connection to my James East. Does anyone out there have any connection or info about this family?
A kind lady suggested he information below;
The records for each place run from the 1500's through to the mid 1800's, but between 1807 and 1813 the children of John and Elizabeth East could have been born at villages whose records aren't on the IGI - perhaps over the border into Hertfordshire.
