Ngaire,
I never have worked out exactly where you fit in.
I am descended from Walter Haycock & Elizabeth (Lizzie) Fitton.
Walter was a son of Charles Haycock & Henrietta Saywell.
I am getting a bit long in the tooth for all this stuff, but would like to give what I have accumulated over the years so that it is not lost.
Bob H.

Thank you so much Bob, that is the point of 'our hard work' :) to set the records straight for future generations on their ancestry as, Im sure, all future generations will be just as earger to know their roots as we are and our ancestors were ...

If you want to send what you have I will gladly add it or do you have your own site somewhere that you would like to share with us

Charles Saywell b.1832 married ELLEN AVERY b.1834.

Ellen Avery was a sister of George Avery my gg grandfather. If any of descendants of Charles and Ellen require help searching the Avery family there is a lot of information available.
