Hi

Just noticed your website with John ROOK 11 October 1793 on it.

I am descended from him (he is my 5th great grandfather).

Would you like the details that I have to add to your site?

Do you have a GEDCOM file you could send me of the information you have relating to him and his ancestors?

Regards

Hi there Linda and sorry about the late response in getting back to you.
Any details would be much appreciated for the site.
I can sort out a GECOM file for you, I have an old software program but
I think it generates the file - do you want all the Andrews lineage as well
(10000 individuals) ????
There is no proof that Jonathan Andrews (m Jane Rook) is the father of my Peter Andrews
- my cousin assumed it was right. (one of those stories).
Regards,
Roy

If your Peter Andrews was christened 31/1/1772 then I too believe he
is the son of Johnathan & Jane Andrews (it's the only child I have found
listed
in the Parish records for that couple Christened in Downton).

Would be interested in receiving how you relate through to the Rook family.

So I can add you to my tree.

I'm off sick at the moment, and can only spend a short while looking
at the screen .......... but when I am better I'll sort some details out for
you for your site.

Best Wishes

Linda

With Peter Andrews christened 31/1/1772 I don't know if there is any
documentation
proving he is the same one in the Andrews lineage - I 'm not sure if my
cousin (who
has died) assumed that they were the same Peter??? I guess if I could find
Jonathons will
it would prove beyond all doubts about Peter.


Regards,
Roy

PS: I have the will of William Rook (brother to Jane/Jenny that married
Jonathon Andrews,
let me know if you need a copy.
