Winstanley, Woodcock, Thomason, Haslewood, Perks, Lyon

Current research (2021) is focusing on the Winstanley and Haslewood connections – there are some fascinating life-stories from collateral branches (Admiral Lord Nelson’s solicitor, William Haslewood; the builder of the first Eddystone Lighthouse, Henry Winstanley; corkscrew inventor and medalist, Sir Edward Thomason, among others).

Once again these connections will be explored using online records (wills, parish records, census data and other web-based documentary sources) and from books and papers in my possession.

Wills will be added to the library as I transcribe them.
