HERTFORD - not Hereford
- My thanks (and apologies) to all those who offered
help with my family's roots back to Herefordshire,
I misread an abbreviation - it's HERTFORDSHIRE that
I am interested in.
What I do find interesting is that my paternal
grandfather's family come from here, just north/
northwest of London (in Australia, we spit further
than the distance from Watford to London - if the
wind is in our favour. hehehe)and my father's family
come from Surrey, a similar distance to the south of
Of course, the distances back 200+ years ago would
have seemed a lot further than they do today.
Thanks again for everyone's help - now it's off to HERTFORDshire.
