Dear Ruth,

It's been a long time since we've been in touch and I've changed emails since then. I don't have your email anymore so I'm hoping you'll get this.

I do have a theory on where the Roper name comes from. It might not be right but it's the only thing that seems to fit at this time!

The original William Roper Scrimshaw's (b. 1805) father William Scrimshaw (b. 1771) - well I have discovered that I've had his parents wrong for quite a while. His parents were William Scrimshaw and Elizabeth Amory. Likewise I've had William's (b. 1771) siblings wrong. In fact, William had a sister called Rebecah Amory Scrimshaw (b. 1774). And Rebecah married a man called Thomas ROPER on 2/5/1797 in Leverington. Thomas was from Denver in Norfolk. I haven't found out any more information on the Ropers BUT perhaps William gave his son a middle name after his sister's husband/family??

Anyway, it's a thought, it might not be right.

Also, my email is edc2210 @ hotmail . com (without spaces!) And I would appreciate greatly if you would be able to give me the details of Leslie Roper Scrimshaw and Miriam Clifton's family. I have none of their children in my tree or anything. If you don't want to do this, I completely understand but thought I'd ask!

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.
