Oh am loving the Spanish Armada story, its such a good tale might hang on to that one. Isnt it strange that we were all told the same Spanish tale, must be some truth in it somewhere.

I wonder how common it was to just not complete the census in its early days, maybe thats the answer. I suppose being literate was rare in those days, although your ancestor seems capable. I have come to a dead end now with the Donbavands, I just find it frustrating that so many Donbavand family trees are posted on the internet, all members from similar areas but none connected to my line. I am quite new to all this and not really sure how to go back further than the census, other than the church of latter day saints site.

I have seen many variations of this name my grandmother's birth certificate states her surname as Dubavin, even though her father was Donbavand. You seem really experienced at this so you have probably come across all the variations. Doubavand, Dunbavin, Dunbobbin, Dumbobbin, Donbavande, Daubavand!

Thanks again for all the info you have given me and hello to a fellow Donbavand descendant. Will let you know if I ever come across a James Johnson Donbavand. My gran had a brother James Donbavand.
