I have been tracing my late Mother's maternal line..Faithfull...for a few years now and have managed to link up to many other genealogists tracing the same family from all over the UK as well as abroad.
I wrote a story about my journey along my mother's maternal line and was surprised at how many members of my family found it interesting. Because of their keen interest I decided to compile a book, including detailed reports on all our ancestors, photos, maps, poems, obituary's, will abstracts, family stories, etc. I named the book 'Faithfully Ours' and have sold @30 copies.
I have managed to trace this Faithfull line back to around 1510 in Nether Wallop, Hampshire. Luckily all my Faithfull's stayed in the Hampshire area throughout the line, which I found to be quite useful, (unlike some families whom seemed to of moved very regularly).
Upon talking to my many Great Aunts/Uncles I discovered that my Great Grandmother's sister was none other than Irene Pilson, the Author of local history, in particular, Bitterne.
I am now going to concentrate on my Mother's paternal line....the surname GALE, unfortunately I don't know if they all stayed in Hampshire.
