I am trying to document everything I can find on my Family History. I am now having a close look at my Liddiard tree and adding more details to the family story. The Liddiards are also associated with Kings of Harwell and I'm trying to ascertain how all these Kings are related.

If you should want to join me in the quest to find the story of my ancestors please contact me with details, of how you fit into my Family Tree, and I will give you access to do this. Anyone else can freely view most material on people who are no longer living and contribute to the more general stories. You can comment on anything on this web site without logging in.
