Have you ever been intrigued by your family history? Finding out about distant ancestors can help explain some things of how we are as we are now.

I am housebound but enjoy the hobby. Unfortunately I have got a bit stuck.

I am hoping my second cousin might be able to help. I understand she was living in the Chesham area of Buckinghamshire and would now be retired.

My second cousin and I share the same great-grandparents, stonemason George James Davies (1847-1892) and Fanny Clapp (1850-1937) from Westminster/Battersea London.

George and Fanny had seven children including James William Davies (1876-1929), whom I believe my cousin is descended from.

James was a WW1 soldier who served in various regiments including the Duke of Cornwall Light Infantry.

I seek nothing from my cousin except to find out more about my distant ancestors’ history and maybe see some photos if possible.

It would really make my day, but I fully respect my cousin's wishes if she chooses not to. If you can help me in the search, please get in touch.
