I'm researching family tree in big way and have discovered that my wife's gt gt gt gndfather was Thomas Ricketts, b 1798/9 Dursley. He probably had a brother James b 1802/3 Dursley. Thomas was in Bristol by 1822. He was married there to a Comfort .... from Somerset with several children. Does anyone have any info on his family and their descendents and, more crucially, his ancestors? It is thought that the family may have come from the Bradford-on-Avon area one or more generations earlier.
Dear Andy - I cannot help a great deal, but if you look in the section relating to my family, you will see in the exchange of correspondence I had with Jane, that our common ancestor Elizabeth Cretchley married William Ricketts on 8th November 1829 in Dursley. I suspect William may be related to Thomas, possibly a brother or cousin. Unfortunately I have no further information, but you would no doubt find details of the family in the Gloucestershire Records Office. - Bob Cretchley
