Thank-you Doug Lockwood.

His profile already exists as Thomas Byde MP but I need to add his daughter (my 9*ggm Dame Mary Byde to link me tree to the main tree.

Kind regards

If you have sources, go ahead & link her.

He would be covered by the England Project.

Thanks Ros, thanks Doug,

I am going to try and get on to the British Politicians subset of the England project.

Apparently I need to be part of a group before I can add my pre-1700 ancestor Dame Mary Byde. Her father Sir Thomas Byde was an MP in James II’s government.

Thanks again


Hi Stephen

You can add a person if you have solid sources. As Ros has said Thomas Byde comes under the England Project. You can join the project by answering this post

You should also communicate with the profile manager who is a member of the England Project and very knowledgeable with English MPs and their families.


Hello Vivienne

Thank-you very much for your help.

I will have a go at adding Mary Byde as the daughter of Sir Thomas.

She is actually referred to in his bio but not yet added to the tree.

It will also be good to discuss 17th century MPs with the England Project leader.

Kind regards
