I’m currently embarking on a project to find out about the Durrant family. I’ve subscribed to a great site, www.ancestry.com to help me with this task. So far, I think I’ve mapped it back to 1809.
Robert Durrant (born about 1809) married Hannah and had seven children : Robert, Carlotta, Margaret, Mary A, Elizabeth, Christopher and Henry.
Henry Durrant (born about 1852) married Ellen SmithÂ and had four children : Henry G, William A, Robert John and Arthur Edward.
Robert John Durrant (born Jun 1880) married Annie Riches and had two children : Robert John Walter and Frederick.
Robert John Walter Durrant married Olive Maud Watson and had three children : Maureen, Barbara and Robert Anthony.
Robert Anthony Durrant married Susan Lynne Adams and had two children : Lee Robert Durrant and myself, Jamie Durrant.
I really would like to work back further, but it’s not so easy now as the earliest census only goes to 1841. So, if you know anything and have stumbled on this page via a search engine, please contact me and perhaps we can consult each other’s trees ! 🙂
