Somerseshire is where both of us were born.

Jim’s earliest PARSONS was traced to HORSINGTON, Somerset but subsequent research probably takes this line back to KINGTON MAGNA, over the county border, in Dorsetshire. The PRINCE line has so far only been traced back to WANSTROW, Somerset although there appears to be a possible link to KILMINGTON on the Wiltshire Border.

Gina’s SEAL(E) line starts in MARSHFIELD Gloucestershire on her mother’s Paternal line, but in ILMINSTER Somerset on the Maternal (MUSGROVE and LEWIS) line.  Her father’s Paternal WRIGHT line starts around DUNSFORD in Devonshire, although the Maternal KIRK side travelled quite widely, and the family was brought up in BRUTON, Somerset.
