Without the name of Michelle's sisters, it is even more difficult to trace a direct link.

Firstly I'm sure that you must refer to Sheffield, a city in the county of Yorkshire.

I have checked some on-line directories and found four Mountcastles listed in Sheffield.

If you want their names and addresses e-mail me on and I will send the info to you.

You have already established that the Mountcastle family has an exclusive pedigree, my ancestors (on my mothers side) being traced back to about 1540. I have photocopies of wills dated 1679 and 1690. Also a note that some of the family prospered in the English civil war. David Miles
