    Thank you again

    Hi Higgler. Nice to meet yet another family member on here.

    If I have this correct Enoch Gridham Drayton was born 08 Mar 1858 in Worlaby, Lincolnshire and was baptised there about a week later. He married Sarah Ann Maddison in Worlaby (Near Bornetby), Lincolnshire on the 14th May 1890.

    Enoch's parents were George Drayton and his second wife Mary Anne Girdham They married in Elsham, Lincolnshire 18 Feb 1857.

    George's parents were John Drayton and Elizabeth Coulson they were married in Aylesby, Lincolnshire on the 23 May 1812.

    John's parents were Edward Drayton and Elizabeth Simmons they were married in St. Peter, Bottesford, Lincolnshire on the 20 Dec 1787.

    Edward Drayton was my 3 x great grandfather. Which makes Enoch Gridham 2nd cousin to my grandfather and so would make us 4th cousins.

    Please let me know if I am anywhere near having this correct lol

    Terry
