WelcomeI’m back and with a new look website, I hope you like it.I’ve done very little to this web site for the last four years as I have been working on a project about the Royal Marine Artillery Church, Eastney, (see The Crinoline Chuch on the Skeletons page) and this has left very little time for family history research. But I’m now back to the ancestors and actively pursuing new lines of enquiry on the BILL and BENNETT lines in particular (see the Research page). I shall be updating the other content over the coming months - check for updates in What’s New?What’s on this site?Family Tree - This will lead you to a link to view my family tree.Research - available & wanted- This page tells the background to my research and lists all the data I have collected but is not in my Family Tree.
