Very many thanks for your very generous offer.

My 2x-great-grandmother, Frances MALLERY and her brother George MALLERY were born in Springfield, Chelmsford about 1812 - probably at the canal basin at what is now called Wharf Road. Do you have any old pictures of the Canal Basin, please?

Best wishes,

If I have an old photograph I'll scan a copy of this and email it to you. To avoid being inundated with requests, this offer is limited to one scan per lister, so if you list a number of Essex ancestral birthplaces, please indicate your order of preference as I may have old photos of all of them.
