      Here's an answer, for now, to the question I posed a while back.

      Hello again Steve,

      I concur with Gillian re children of Thomas and Mary Loy. Three died in
      infancy and don't know of any marriage/children for Robert or Sarah. For the
      record Thomas married twice more after the death of Mary Loy; Mary Ellwood on
      13/04/1783 (no issue) and of course, Elizabeth Willon 23/11/1784.

      You are correct that I am descended from Ann Ellwood & Thomas Parker (they
      were my grt, grt, grandparents) and, as I like to boast when I get a chance,
      another stem (via their son Thomas) connects to the royal family.

      With respect there is no evidence of a link to Thomas Ellwood & Elizabeth
      Dobson, though the debate seems unending. I have a Thomas on my tree born
      'about' 1670, but who his parents were and baptism date are not known,
      there is a gap in the parish records for this period.

      Hi Stan,

      Thanks very much, that all makes perfect sense. We've only recently
      discovered our connection to those families, and so are still trying to sort
      out the links between them, and which kids belong to which families, so your
      comments are very helpful.

      Do you happen to know if any of Thomas and Mary Loy's kids went on to marry
      and have children of their own?

      Keep well,
      Steve Hayes
