Our Vancouver branch of the Spedding family can trace our ancestry in a direct line from my husband back to Francis Spedding (Spenig, Spedy, Spedim and Speedim - spelling was arbitrary back then!) born in Gilling West near Richmond, Yorkshire 9 August 1640 He married Mary Massam in 1673 and their children Thomas b.1674, George b. 1676, Margaret b. 1678, Francis b. 1681 and William b.1686 were all born in nearby Melsonby, Yorkshire. We think this branch of the family came from Cumbria down Watling Street, the ancient Roman road down to Yorkshire but cannot prove it. All family papers going back to 1650 were lost in a fire in England in 1900. Nan Spedding
