The Snelson DataBase & Armory includes references from sources at St Catherine’s House in London during 1969-1971 and during my activity here in Sydney at The Society of Australian Genealogists where I served on the Council for many years – and was the a founder (along with Max Carrick and Phil Young) of the Sydney Dead Persons Society.

Much knowledge was gleaned from parish registers of births, deaths, marriages, christenings and burials. I also spent some time with the IGI fiche (remember them).

Another fruitful source was found in chartularies, tithe maps, land records, wills and other records.

I have wasted more time than I care to remember with the dead than with the living, poring over census records, scrutinising transportation and shipping lists, groveling around churchyards trying to decypher monument inscriptions, looking at land records and corresponding with the guild and the College of Heralds … when Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were still in short pants.

    Firstly - congratulations on your database that I stumbled upon, what a resource and a labour of love. I've very much enjoyed looking through it. I think it's likely that we're related as I came across your work googling 'Snelson'. I have been tracing my family back and had come across a baptism record for my ancestor Jane Higham giving her parents as Thomas (gardener) and Mary. Looking through the records for other children I found a marriage which fitted for Mary Snelson and Thomas Higham as parents - right time, occupation and area. Mary Higham appears in the census records with the rest of the family, her birth details are b 1801 in Farndon. Looking through your database this matches exactly with your Mary Snelson. In addition, the Emma Higham who is with Thomas in the 1841 census would be Mary Snelson and Thomas Higham's eldest daughter and so Thomas Snelson's granddaughter. There is a baptism record for Emma confirming her parents as Thomas and
    Mary Snelson.
    So I have details of Mary's children and further descendants if you are interested in adding these to your tree - there's quite a lot of info so I'm not sure the best way to get this to you if you'd like. But thank you for letting me go further back in my tree and finding in you some distant cousin.

    Best wishes
