HI Ian, Hope all is well with you. If possible can you give the virgin.net e-mail again and I'll try and send you an e-mail. I am still gathering much info on the family. The plot thickens a bit but not sure if true. One branch of the Gill family states that John Gill was an Irish mercenary or soldier and that he eloped with Maria Blagrave who was either English born or born in Belfast. She was titled but because of the marriage was disinherited and as a condition was given her dowry with the promise they would leave Ireland forever. They supposedly took a trip around the world and settled in Cedar County Iowa. I know Sir John Henry Blagrave was married in Calcott Park Ireland but don't know about siblings. I'm puzzled because Maria lists her father as John Blagrave and he was supposedly a shoemaker. Didn't know if you ever heard of any tidbit like this before. Let me know. Thanks, Brad
