Thank you Gerry - you are always very helpful. I know enough about EH Ledwell to know that your last paragraph is correct - my grandmother often spoke about growing up in a hotel environment - it is his ancestors, rather than his wife's, that I am having trouble locating.

Kind regards, and thanks, once again,

I had a look yesterday online and your LEDWELL genealogy is in family trees at RootsWeb. Scroll down to FamilyTrees WorldConnect, click on Search Family Trees, type in just simply Ledwell Edward and contact the database owners.
