Hi Brad, I came across and alleged link of my grandmother, Alison Amelia BURR, nee Aston to Henry VIII and got quite excited. However I do not think that it is correct. Wishing to clarify and correct if necessary. Her husband Sidney Milton (my grandfather)l, he father Albert Edmund BURR who married his second wife (after the death of his first), Elizabeth Mary BATES. Albert and Elizabeth had one child (happy to give you her details - Joyce), she was a half sister (Joyce) to my grandfather and never married or had children.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Really great interview for the Meet Our Members feature, Brad!

Thanks kindly Pip. I must say I was quite humbled to be asked to be interviewed.

It's nice to meet you. We are 10th cousins once removed. Your picture reminds me of the video game Karnov. Would you happen to be a fan? The relationship the connection finder gives us is through my mother, but my Hutchins line goes back to Dorset and eventually to Cornwall, so we have a common research interest on that side of the family. I did find a Coffin on my father's side yesterday and still need to research that connection.
posted by Scott Hutchins
Hi Scott, I'm not familiar with Karnov, but went online & had a look. He's just a smidge more muscular than me, otherwise spot on! I checked out the relationship *& you're right to say it goes through the Coffins. I also checked some of your bloodline on your profile & we do share quite a few of those. I may have to add some of those to my profile too. Thanks for the info. -Brad

Hi Brad,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles. These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. 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

Thanks Amy, for your kind & thoughtful words. The times certainly have changed & you're right that our time on WT may have altered somewhat. For me, it gives me MORE time to commit to sourcing, digging into my own line as well as sourcing for my county teams. I am also busy with my new role as a Trailblazer. All the best to you & the other Project Leaders for reaching out. Stay safe! -Brad

Hi Brad,

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 Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. 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,
