    Hey Steve, you might be interested to know that Dicey is also known as Dianah English, July 1825, County Court Minute Book, PP 123-124.

    Also there is a good possibility that our ancestors came from Settrington, Yorkshire, England about 1560 and immigrated to Ireland about 1659. This has not been 100% verified but it all fits well!!

    Regards,

      Do you know if your East Anglia relative has joined the East Anglia Project??
      Is this Washburn??

      I just did a quick look on the 1841 UK Census for the surname English born 1740-1780. A lot are from Suffolk and Norfolk, also a lot from Yorkshire, Durham, Northumberland, Glouscestershire and Somerset, Kent, Surrey and Middlesex. There is a website that gives the percentage of a surname distribution in the UK in the 1800s, I just have to find it again.
      I don't believe any of my Washburn relatives are in the East Anglia Project, but I don't know for sure.

      I know they are I1a, but that's about it.

        Appears to be interesting!

        Today I happened to bump into the site of www.jobstories.com.au through google. Does anyone know about this initiative or what it is all about?

        Cheers
