Hi SV,

Thanks for the info, we must be of like minds, as I also came across this info yesterday. So another link in the chain secured.

One of the problems I encountered, was that there were a few Sidney Martyns about so I ended up with a choice of wives. [Sydney for the original - unless the census officer mispelt it] I think I have the right wife now - can't quote her as haven't got the web page at hand. It's a pain when ancestors marry late, cos it doesn't necessarily follow that they married someone of the same age.

HeyHo, all part of the fun.

I raise my glass to you [Super U have Cote du Rhone 2010 at 1.39 euros a btle.)
