Brett, I can't thank you enough, I have been workingt on this a long time, gets quite confusing when you have about 180 John's, 170-Francis's etc, over 6 centuries, and then they all have around 12-20 children named after their father, Uncle or grandfather!!
With Alot of Gratitude,
P.S. Please pray for us in the United States.
seems like its a pretty rare name
this shows the distribution in England
but I imagine you pretty much knew that already
You all have been so helpful, I am trying to do this for my 14 yr old grandson for a Christmas Present, my Daughter will Love it,
God Bless You All,
Kim Stokley "Stokley's Finest!"
I did not do anything.
I just sent you post to a few extra groups in this Forum.
My Wife is doing a "Family History" thing for our kids.
She is using (BYU) "RelativeFinder".
ps: We are from "Down Under" (Australia) - we are lucky.
We have Family/Extended Relatives and many connections over there (USA).
And, in the United Kingdom & Ireland.
We are thinking and praying for you guys.
You and Family Bible led me in the right direction, I have found my 16th Grt. Grandfather George Stockley 1495-1566! Also, my Mother was/is Italian and we have family down under! Last name Pizzino!, not sure what part, we all have a connection and one blessing in Heaven, Our Lord.,
God Bless You and Yours.
Interesting fact, there are 2 burrows in England, one being, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and a Stokesley in Collyweston, Northamptonshire, England! I found John Stokesley 1475-1539 who went to Magdalen College, Oxford, in 1495 her was a lecturer. In 1498 became the Principal of Magalen Hall, the vice-President of it. In 1509 he was appointed a member of the royal council and chaplain and almoner to Henry VIII, he became Bishop of London and Lord Almoner in 1530. And in September of 1533 christened the future Queen Elizabeth!!!
I had to share that with you, thought it was awesome, so my quest is to see if there are any comparisons to the 2 burrows, or relation to the name.
Anyway, back to Trent, it would have been ?? my 25Grt-Grdpa? Ralph de Stockleye 1273 who faught or founded Stoke-on-Trent, a court case of 2 men him and a Mr. Ley wanted the same land, so the Court combined the two, case was Stock v Ley, hence it was deemed they split it and it became Stoke On Trent!!
So bless you and hug a koala for me,
Kim aka Kym Stokley
