I've never used those fields, because results I knew to be there were often missing. If I want to use a wildcard in a place name I put it I the Keyword box.

I used to do that, Merry, but wildcards don't seem to work very well in the keywords box either nowadays.

I was trying to use wild cards for the name because I knew it was misspelt, but never mind. You have both located the entry we decided some years ago had to be him. Claypole is not far from Caythorpe by present day standards, the birth year is only four years out and there is no better candidate.

Bracebridge, sadly, is south of Lincoln, whereas I wondered if he might be in the broad area of Nettleton, which is very much north Lincolnshire. Back to the drawing board.

Don't say that! I've not had any problems yet!

Again we have ancestors from the same place. First Long Bennington and now Claypole. One day we will establish that link

We’re not Claypole, we’re Firestone and Caythorpe. However, there is a family in Long Bennington, with the same name. That’s Bill Owen’s family and people used to comment all the time about how similar he and my dad were.

I also, I noticed the other day, have a Newey in my DNA matches. Probably best not go there?

Newey very common in the Birmingham area.

Just for curiosity where’s the Newey from and what’s the first name?

Username removed - no clues as to name, no searchable tree. Dang! Shared matches with my mystery people.
