Spencer Family Tree of Ted & Barbara Spencer

Our primary research sources are family history memories (written, photographic and oral). Thereafter: Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk); LDS Family History Centre (www.familysearch.org); Freebmd (www.freebmd.org.uk); and Yorkshire BMD (www.yorkshirebmd.org.uk).

o Thanks to Shaun Spencer for commissioning the tracing of our SPENCER line back to John and Elizabeth SPENCER of Walkington, East Yorkshire.

 

o We are grateful to our cousin, Jeremy Evans, for sharing with us his extensive and detailed research on the SMITH and WISEMAN lines.

 

o We worked together on the BULMER line with Jeremy Evans, and thereafter benefitted from the research of Brian Dickinson (www.myfamilies.co.uk/bulmer).

 

o We shared information on our BUSTIN line with Faye Sutherland of Australia, and are very grateful to her for allowing us to reproduce copies of some family pictures on our website.

 

o Many thanks to Daphne Heiner, of Australia, for her generous help in breaking through our HUTCHINS brick wall.

 

o Our thanks to Robin Gill for graciously granting us permission to use an extract from his research essay The Teale Family and to reproduce the photograph of Frederick Teale. Thanks also to Robin for putting us on the right track with regards to the parentage of Jeremiah Teale. Robin is a font of knowledge on the TEALE family and contact with him can be facilitated on request.

 

o We have enjoyed sharing research with Steve Wilson on the line of Sophia WILSON, first wife of Frederick Spencer. We can highly recommend his wonderful website - www.osset.net

 

o During 2010 and 2011 we had the pleasure of exchanging photos and information on our WILLIAMS line with Ashley Howard of Hull, East Yorkshire and Andy Ladd of Shropshire.

Access to the facilities and records of the foregoing has been invaluable, together with friendship, advice and help generously given and greatly appreciated.
