Apologies everyone for the very long delay in responding to this post. I had moved on to other lines and Mum asked me today if I had anything on the parents of Mary Ann Wilde. So then remembered this thread. @Grizel I have seen that article before @Chimp it certainly seems to confirm the children of John and Mary Ann. @Grams I'll have to keep looking some other way. Not planning on doing DNA tests anytime soon. My mum's cousin did one and apparently we come from the Isle of Wight/Wright... which there is no record of in any of the family history I've been doing. So not sure how accurate it is. So I guess we go with John Edward or maybe Edward as my Mum suggested recently. Thanks agin all.
