It is frustrating, to say the least, that there appears no record of Samuel Ford’s parent or where he may have been born. But is that the end of the matter? Surely Not. What can we glean from the record that might assist in tracking down the Illusive Samuel Ford?
I added some thoughts on the matter. For my latest additions see Chasing Samuel Ford.
I have, for some years, been searching for the birth certificate for Robert Wright, the father of Margaret Wright who married Samuel Ford. All these searches failed to locate Robert. But today .. success .. I located his OPR. For the details go to the new Births page.
Well done everyone .. google has recognised the site .. thank you
Lots of interested generated recently led me to rearrange the page order.
I have also made the leap and register a ‘real’ website please note the new address .. https://followingthefootprintsofjamesford.com
