Hi Roy

I have been in contact with you some time ago. I have been working hard to find my Peter Andrews b 1814. Well he was from Bishopstone and was the son of Peter and Susanna.

Could you tell me anything about him??

Best wishes
Marilyn

Hi there Marilyn and thanks for your message re Peter Andrews.
Sorry about the delay in response.
The only thing that I know about my Andrews family is that
they originated fom Bishopstone via Salisbury
in Wiltshire c 1740. My line starts with a
Peter ANDREWS born c1771 at Downton.Peter married Susanna MUNDAY
at Downton on 04/03/1793. Sometime after their marriage they have
moved to Bishopstone via Salisbury as the church records have 10 children
as being baptised there.Abraham ( my 2x great )was one of the 10 children
and he married Sarah GIBBS and emigrated to Australia in 1838 but the other
9 children are a mystery. Abraham came out to Australia in 1838 and left
8000 descendents in the country. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other
9 children went to the USA or Canada, time may tell. Abraham was the only
one to come out on the Woodbridge - I know other ships came out in 1840 - 1842.
I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW MYSELF AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO THE
REST OF ABRAHAMS FAMILY - PROBABLY WILL NEVER KNOW.
You would proably have a better chnace than me in researching the Bishopstone
Andrews as I'm down under in Sydney, Australia and not much access to local
records.

Hi Roy,

As my Peter disappeared around 1840 wondered if he was on the ship Woodbridge (my maiden name!!) with Abraham and family?
