    Perhaps he called himself Charles to avoid confusion with his father. My m-I-l was known by a name totally unrelated to her real name, which was the same as her mother!

    SNAP! I have just found that as well.

    Now, who else on the forum has that name in their ancestry? ;) @Chimp

    I know someone else who does that! ..... @Chimp

    No afraid not. The earliest I can go back to with any certainty on that line is the marriage of my 3x great grandfather. He married in 1815 in Hopesay, Shropshire.

    Probably, I think my 3 x grt grandfather was from Worcestershire according to the 1851 census (never been able to prove it though) but the name is originally from Wales.

    It is only a transcript on FMP

    Laura Press Dee (sic)
    Gender Female
    Birth year 1803
    Baptism date 28 Feb 1803, Leigh with Bransford, Worcestershire
    Father John Press Dee
    Mother Mary

    Notice the name is entered as 'Press Dee', that is how my ancestor's name was entered on the census's
    You could have something :reading:

    Theoretically, if we go back far enough, there is supposed to be a common ancestor, no? ;)

    I was never a fan of the Wizard of Oz so never noticed them. Omg Chimp, they are very ugly. Darned if I would be laying claim to those ancestors. :eek:
