I dont believe Fossetts from England are related to Fossetts in Maine as Alexander Fossett Sr was well known as a Scot

I have posted a few times about the following profiles: Thomas Kembold ( and Agnes Kimbolde (Kembold-2) The suggested sources are down in the comments on each profile. If an answer would be left - positive or negative - it would be nice. Thanks.

Hi X . These comments are always helpful for whoever ends up adopting and working with the profile. Since the profiles are both orphaned, no one will be notified automatically of your comments but they are helpful and appreciated. Thank you.

What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do!

Kindest Regards, Amy Utting

Hi Michael, now that the CAT is over with, I can't recall whether I sent you my email address that you had requested. I've put it in a private message in Discord. Look forward to hearing from you. -Brad

Michael, why did you delete the references to Sanders', Early English Baronies in all the Arsic family profiles you recently edited? This is an important authority. Can you please add those back in?
posted by Andrew Lancaster
Apologies, it’s done.

Have you got a link to Sanders, I could not find a copy? I would certainly like to review it but it’s elusive, even Amazon don’t have it.

Do you have a Scan of P36 (and P23 is another that crops up) for my info?

My reasoning was that the profiles were previously without data and I had a useful citation. Should have checked with you first.

posted by Michael Christmas
Hi Michael, 1. Yes it is a bit hard to find. I had to buy a second hand copy. But it is very widely cited. 2. Yes, I created fairly bare profiles but what information was there came from Sanders. Keep in mind that Sanders is also a source for the category of the feudal barony, and not just the visible text.

Thanks for responding.

Not so far but I will look out for it. I am only researching Crows in Earls Colne, Essex, England as part of the OPS.
posted by Michael Christmas
Michael, have you come across any Crows in your research spelled CHROW?

Hi Michael,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Essex and Bio Builders. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Thank you, Michael, for the Henry King baptism input.

No problem Anne, thank you for looking. There are a number of Rogers in the Harlakenden family. The one you found is the grandfather of the one I am interested in. I will just have to sharpen my pencil and go through it. It’s a good idea to create a free space for the record.I will do that once I have the semblance of a transcription.

Thanks also for the encouragement to add data, if relevant.

Re will of Roger H. The will I found is for the wrong Roger, sorry. Apparently Anderson extracted it in the great migration sketch. You still my try googling. but use the date in the search.

Re will of Roger H

pdf version using modern spelling I found this first thing in a google search, "Will of Roger Harlakenden" You may be able to find another using original spelling by trying other searches. Also check whatever 1800's genealogy was written about Roger.

And yes please feel free to add the info directly to the profile, using a proper citation. We don't generally post entire wills, but digest it instead. You can create a free space page for the entire will and link them. Example
