Bumblebee a big thanks.I cannot believe how such info can get me as far back as the late 18th century,in just a couple clicks of a mouse on Family org site.Amazing.I had heard a story of one of our ancestors fled from the French Revolution,tentative at best.But this is going to be interesting search.Again thankyou.Hazel

Well so much for the french connection.On further investigation the Gilvears are from scotland,another family myth blown from the water.No wonder i think i am going mad.Thankyou Janbooth a lot more to be going on with,that sorts out more visits to the archives for the forseeable future.

Sorry, I have just noticed a typo in my last message - should read it through more carefully. The father of Margaret Maud Hooper GILVEAR should read Lambert - sorry about that.
