Seeking Family Name ?
« on: September 24, 2016, 03:19:08 PM »
 I am wondering if  anyone has any recollection  of  a family named, Exton,  who possibly  lived in or around  the Belfast  area  in the 1950s through 1960s. time period. ?

Gill I  searched directories for Belfast with zero results.  I believe Edward X and his son only lived with relatives  in N.  Ireland  for a short period of time and then  returned to England  .  I  believe  that  50s through 60s  time period is connected  only to the other, much  younger relative of Edward.    I do have  a person working on this  connection . I should have the results when you arrive back.   Looking forward to your return !

My GGGGrandfather was Samuel Burrows of Ballyskeigh Lambeg born 1800, if there is anyone out there with connections I have photographs I am willing to share.
He had a brother called William.

No problem  Gill.   You will need to take time  sift through and organize all those details.    I also  need to do that with my side of the  family

Sebastian I also received the news and  I accept that we are not blood relatives. Have you any clues  how and when our families began thinking that we were?

Gillian I called a few older relatives who remember or heard of  an " In-Law"  relationship,  a couple of generations  ago  .    I can only presume that our  relatives  in those years  began to loosely uses the terms cousin , aunty, uncle .   Just as a convenience. 
I will see if I can find out more information
