Good afternoon from Mathew and Thelma Birrell from Maroochydore in Queensland. I am new to this list but not new to mail lists as such. Over 16 years we have researched our familiy from Nathaniel Skeats who was an Innkeeper of Rose and Crown at Southampton. CELIA SKEATS married J.BELBIN and became a widow before she married again to Thomas Down MONTGOMERY. Both of these came to Australia in 1880's. However, Nathaniel was married to Mary Brown and when Mary died, he married Sarah SAUNDERS. families and can be found at Montgomery-Down - http://home.talkcity.com/BookmarkBlvd/mrbirrell/ I have much to share . Sincerely in Searching...
