I spotted your request for information about the ancestors of Herbert Sydney Shipton and was wondering if the maiden name of your elderly friend that you mention was Muriel Doreen Shipton. If it was, then she is my wifeís Aunt whom she has lost touch with and would love to meet again. (My wife was named Doreen after her Aunt)
My wifeís mother was Julia Ann Florence Leak, Nee` Shipton, (known as Ciss to the family) whose father was Herbert Sydney Shipton born 1887 in Broadmayne.
His father was Sydney Shipton born 1860 in Bockhamton and his father was Richard Shipton born 1825 in Bockhamton.
Thatís as far back as we have traced at the moment but we have other information on the family.

Pete & Doreen Martin
