I was most excited to read your post regarding the Watkins-Probert names. Think maybe we might be connected. My dad always maintained there was a Wales connection, his brother said no. My info comes from the IGI (cannot put my fingers on it right now): Stephen Watkins had three children, James, Meredith & Hester, born Kington (Hereforshire, Eng). James had Elizabeth, James, Mary, Hester, Eleanor, Jane (b May 1735), William (b Oct 1737), Usher, Meredith, born same. (Jane mar 25 May 1759 to David Probert?, William mar 14 Feb 1762 to Eliz. Probert?). William had Thomas, William, John, John, James, William, James, Elizabeth, James, born Kings Pyon (Huntington, Eng). Thomas had William, James, Thomas (born Huntington). William had Salina (?), Thomas Wm, Robert Tully, Walter, Elizabeth born Aperly (?) & Cheltenham, Eng. Robert Tully had Cecil Charles, Cecil Frank, Horatio, Arthur Percival, Sidney Robert, born Oxford, Eng. Arthur Percival had Arthur Cyril, Reginald Tully (my dad), Phyllis Gertrude, John Percival, all born Vancouver BC, Canada.
Would love to hear from you or anyone who recognizes the above names. email@example.com
