Dear Tony & Bryn
Guess I disappeared for a while didn't I? The last couple of years were a bit "hectic" for me, enough said.
I trust that you and your family are well and happy.
The family tree research project surfaces from time to time although I have not been able to devote much time to it. However, some information has just come to light which offers some circumstantial evidence to support a theory of mine. That's a theory to possibly explain-away the physical resemblance between Bryn and me.
Following-on from that I have a question. Your ancestor Sidney Deamer (was it your Grandfather? I lost all my Emails from you two when I changed computers a while ago; corrupt back-up disc), did he have middle initial? Was was it?
The attachment is not germane to this query. What it shews is the village of Pulloxhill (sic) in Bedfordshire, a photo taken on a grimly cold day a year ago. It was here that the oldest representative of the English (i.e. not the German/American) Deamers is recorded. 1536, King Henry VIII's days. Hope it might be of interest. I can now confirm what I'd earlier said to you, this part of the English Midlands was the Deamer heartland.
