Born Leicester General Hospital 1945, lived with parents until April 1949. Mother picked up tuberculosis from an elderly neighbour she helped and died in June 1949. Our maternal grandparents took us to live with them at Lakesend, Cambs/Norfolk border. I attended Lakesend primary School and Wisbech Grammar School, left with 9 GCE O-level passes. Aged 17 went to Leicester to work in a Laboratory, moved through several science & engineering related posts. Whilst working full-time I gained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities and Social Sciences followed by a post-graduate certificate in Education. Married aged 20, had a girl then a boy, My wife and her mother were killed in a road traffic accident, both children were severely injured, so was their maternal uncle who was driving. I remarried 2 years later, we had two girls and are now growing old disgracefully together. All four children have exceeded our highest expectations and hold responsible positions; a carer, a scientist, an optician and a Health and Safety auditor. I've been unwell and somewhat disabled since late 1999, I intend to make a full recovery eventually. I ain't dead yet (I just look that way sometimes).

I'm tidying my tree and The surname of John Austwick born 1509 is sometimes given as Asqueth or Astwick. All descendants seem to have adopted Asquith I see that you already have a John Astwick born 1509 and I believet they are the same. Walttree

I've really just started to work on my mother's side of the family. All I know is that my great grandfather Cleborn (Claiborne?) Clayton married Helen Etta Raynor. I have several generations of Raynor information. According to census information, Cleborn's father was James Archibald Clayton.
Also, I don't know about the privacy settings. Could it be that I just haven't put much into it yet? Thanks for any help you can offer!

just a shout out from a 19th cousin...going back more than 20 generations.
I did know my likely descent in 16th and 17 century included Symes, but only just now discovered the Very very long Horner line that you are part of. So at some point I will educate myself on Horner.
I am somewhat newer member of the community. Also proudly 1500 Certified. I am a retiree in the sunny desert of Southern California. Hey how about Leicester City!!!
