The next cluster of stories that will be appearing here are mainly concerned with members of my maternal grandfathers family line. The line is comprised the Alchin and Wheatley families and those that married into them, including; Pollard, Brown, Stead, O’Donnell and Shaw. Details on these two family groups, and the members who are most likely to be discussed here, can be found on their relevant family pages: Alchin and Wheatley. More stories will be added over time. See the About page for details on this project and a snapshot of my maternal and paternal family lines.
