    Dear Gwen--

    You may recall that a few months ago you were kind enough to give me

    some information on this family from whom my wife is descended. I have

    found three slim books on the Pedlar/Pedler family all of which mention

    the marriage of Hannah Pedlar/Pedler to John George of Roche, Cornwall.

    I have made copies of the relevant portions of these books so that I

    can send them to my wife's cousins who may be interested in Thomas

    George's ancestry. I have also made a copy for you which I intend to

    snail mail to you.

    I think that you will be most interested in Samuel Pedlar's ANCESTRAL

    HISTORY OF CHARLES PEDLAR OF VAUXHALL [Foxhole], CORNWALL, ENGLAND, published in Toronto in 1894. The compiler was the greatnephew of Hannah (Pedlar) George, and he had visits with two of Thomas George's brothers while he (the compiler) was temporarily staying in Montreal. He lists all of

    the children of Hannah and John George, and, in most cases, he gives the names of the spouses and children. I discovered that the baptism of each of these children in Roche is included in the Mormons' FamilySearch IGI. The source of this baptismal information is apparently a record of the Church of England in Roche, and I have ordered the film showing these baptisms.

    The other two books were written by Sir Frederick Pedler and published

    in the 1980s. They are A PEDLER FAMILY HISTORY (1984) and A WIDER

    PEDLER FAMILY HISTORY (1989). These books are just full of Pedler

    family history with genealogical charts going back as far as 1500. They

    also cover numerous other families with whom the Pedlers intermarried.

    Hannah Pedler does not seem to have had any royal blood and they were

    not even landed gentry. They do appear to have been solidly yeomen.

    The compiler was able to trace them primarily through land leases.

    I am happy to send you the extracts from all three books, but, if you

    really do not care to get involved with the Pedler/Pedlar family

    ancestry, let me know and I will not include them. If you don't mind,

    I will hold off my mailing to you for another two weeks or so, hoping

    that the LDS film of the Roche baptisms will get here soon.

    I am so grateful for you having responded to my inquiry with so much

    helpful information.

    Warmest regards,

    Doug Hickling
