Why not subscribe briefly to Genbrit-L, the General British enquiry list, as this is a multi-county
enquiry, and post the brickwalls there.
There are some knowledgeable people on there.
Subscribe to the *List* in the usual way via Rootsweb.
It is gatewayed to the unmoderated Genbrit Newsgroup, so be prepared for some sharp advice as well
as kindly advice.
But worth it for the knowledge :-)
