  1. Dear all,

    I seem unable to send images to this e-mail address (the gaps between the text represent the missing images) and am happy to do so if you could send me another address!

    I left a comment on your web-site regarding the Hickey family.

    I am keen to know more about the Hickeys. I am a member of Ancestry.Com and another member has traced the family back to Noah Hickey 1689 – 1766 but does not provide much background information (homes. occupations etc)

    I wonder if the book that you mention provides more information about the Hickey ancestors?

    The Hickey arms are illustrated “party per pale” with those of Gilbert in “The Gilberts of Compton” which was executed by Graham Johnson, the Herald Painter to Lyon Court in 1906 and commissioned by my wife’s g,g grandfather Charles Maitland Pelham Burn and/or his brother Henry.

    Lucy Young Hickey 1831-1888 3rd dau. of William Hickey

    It would appear that features of the Hickey arms have been included in those of Pelham Burn. I am keen to trace their origins and hope that you can help me do so.

    Yours sincerely,

    1. Dear Sir,

      I am intersted in knowing more about Colonel John Pennycuick who built the Mullaiperiyar dam as an engineer in Tamil Nadu, India, Please give me details about his life history or any book about him.

  2. We have just purchased a house in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The designer is E.C Malet-Warden and the house was built in 1955.

    We are trying to find out as much about the designer as possible. The house is very interesting in design (particularly for its time) and it did appear in the local Heritage Inventory in 1988. Not much since though!

    Do you know if your ancestor ever lived in the Vancouver area? Do you know if he (or possibly she!) was an architect or had influential artist friends?

    Be lovely to know! The house needs renovating. If we can find out more about it, we can try to be more sympathetic to the original style.

    Thank you!

  3. .dear “Deargrandchildren”:I was very interested to read your account of the life of Christopher Wandesford, sometime Lord Deputy of Ireland during the 17th.century. My family descends from his daughter, Alice Wandesford who married William Thornton of East Newton and whose daughter, also Alice, married Thomas Comber DD sometime Dean of Durham Cathedral, I have just achieved a longtime wish of mine, which was to be able to see Robert thornton?s handqriting (he lived during the 15th.century, at East Newton and he and his parents and descendants and ancestors all seem to have been buried in Stonegrave Minster, East Riding, co. York) I learned through Google that Lincoln University had just been given by Lincoln Cathedral a facsimile copy of the “Thornton Romances” kept in the cathedral library, at least part of the manuscript as another part of the manuscript is kept in the British Library, London) My branch of the Comber family descends from this Robert Thornton and ofcourse from Alice Wandesford Thornton, and Alice Thornton Comber. There are quite a few members of the Comber family living here in Argentina, also in Chile, Brazil and Mexico. I?m trying to get together all the familly information available to leave for my nephews and niece and their children and grandchildren should they ever become interested in where the come from and from what familied they descend, but at present they don?t seem to be really interested!. Yours very sincerely Helena Patricia (Pat) Comber

Yours very sincerely Helena Patricia (Pat) Comber. Have just reieved a note saying that I?d submitted a duplicate comment containing the same information, sorry, but the first one got it?s sentences all tangled up and I couldn?t find a way to errase and correct so I sent another similar one. Hope this clear up any doubts. Once again, very sincerely, Pat Comber (I happen to be a rather old woman, 84 years old and my computer skills are very limited
