GATES help

I'm back working on the pages about the farms and farmers of Wing, hoping to have at least one hamlet ready for the August update to the website. However I need a bit of help unravelling the GATES family (specifically the line that came to Wing from Aston Abbots, i.e. the line where Baron appears as a forename) in the early 20th century. If there are any descendants or relatives out there who could share information with me, please please email me at as I'd love to get it resolved.

July update

I've been a bit quiet this month - spending more time knitting than researching! But I do have the July update up. This month it's for those researching back in the 16th century - the subsidy roll for 1524/5. This is approximately 20 years before the start of the parish registers, so if you're looking for men (or women, there are a few of those listed) around this timeframe who had assets or income of £1 or more, you may just find them being taxed - or rather, providing a subsidy to the King - in the subsidy roll.
