Thank you very much for getting back to me I am very interested in getting to you because i have some confusing question that need answering my email is so that you can get back to me that way. John Durrant(1856)not sure where born but believed to be Stourton Caundle Somerset and by the Family Search site he also lived in Jersey as a (British Subject),is my gggrandfather,but from him in my tree i go straight to his father which is
Samuel Durrant(1795)&Charlotte loder(1797)who had 13 kids,So that is one of the problems that i have it dont seem to line up perhaps that is one you could help with for now.I have also been told that the Durrants came across from Normandy but I am to sure of that one,and also that the U in Durrants name has two dots above it yet again i am not sure this is all new to me but i am willing to learn.I would like to give you my phone No 01202 677704 so that you could call me if you what to I also have a tree in
Genes Reunited called William Ewart Durrant Family Tree you are qutie welcome to look at that.From my side of the Durrants I have one uncle who Ithink is still alive and he lives in reading Basingstoke.I also had an email from a
Philip Brown who says that John Durrant married a
Georgina Ella Shepherd in 1885 in Wincanton, a year after his first wife Mary died.And that William Ewart Durrant married Clara Morris on the 14th July 1914 in Basingstoke,Hampshire.and that is where my side of the family come from hope this is helpful and cant wait to see if you can correct my any of my tree or add to it awaiting your reply Bill Durrant (Granson).
