I'm looking to grow my family tree from ancestors in England.

Hi my mame is Rev from Adelaide, South Australia and have been working on my family tree for about 12 months. Currently I'm exploring the Lyle family from Launcells, Cornwall and the Revell family from Kent, UK. I don't believe there are links to the US.

I don't know if he's related to you or not, but I'm looking for William Lyle born 1780, who married Margaret Church, the granddaughter of James Orr and Margaret Alexander.  Richard Lyle born Laucells in 1787 had brother William Lyle born in 1780.  I don't know whether he is the William Lyle who married Margaret Church, but the birth years are identical.  Margaret was born in Ulster, Ireland.

My William was the grandfather of Thomas Ranken Lyle who died in South Yarra, Victoria, Australia.
Hi David

My ancestor Richard Lyle was born 19 October 1787 in Launcells which concurs with your Richard. However I have no record that he had a brother, William. To my knowledge Richard's siblings were John b.1770, Anna Maria b.1773, Prudence b. 1776 and Mary b. 1791. Their parents were Richard and Elizabeth Jewel, married 3.11. 1769.

Cheers, Rev
Richard Lyle was my Grandfather.  He was named Henry Jackson Lyle at birth, he was born in Montgomery County, Tennessee in June of 1854.
Thanks but this is not the right Richard Lyle, mine was born in Launcells, Cornwall
Hi Rev

I am the grand daughter of Leslie Gerner Daws.I have a family history of the of the Daws family. The earliest I have of the Lyle family is Richard Lyle who died in 1837. His son, Thomas Sluman Lyle married Sarah Coombe in 1835. The history I have then follows through to Deryk Daws and the branches into his family as it was his wife who compiled the history. The earliest Daws recorded on here is Elizabeth Daws, Baptised in1591. There is a break in the records until 1754. it is quite a large recording of the different branches of the family.

Cheers Terry
Hello Terry

Thanks for your comments. Leslie Gerner Daws was my uncle who I knew many years ago. You would obviously know his son David, my cousin who I have regular contact with despite him living interstate in Victoria.

I believe the family tree you refer to is one similar to the one done by Reginald Daws, Leslie's brother. It is an excellent record but does contain errors but to be expected as he did this research before the days of the internet. I was unaware Joan Daws complied any history. Is Deryk still alive? I did try to contact him but never got an answer after many tries. Keep in touch, it is great to hear from you.

Regards, Rev

My mother's family is all from Norfolk while Dad's family is Australian with ancestors from Scotland, Gloucestershire and Staffordshire. Dad's folks arrived in Australia via the convict system and were in Van Diemen's Land.

Thanks Rosemary, our ancestors all migrated to Adelaide where 99% settled.
