Don't know if anyone is still following this, but the above mentioned George, born to William and Sarah is my great great great granddad. My line goes like this... Dorothy Edith Mary Silke born 1908 in Trull, Taunton Somerset to... William George Silke and Sarah Ann Southwood, William born 1874 in Cannington, Somerset to... George Silke and Sarah Jane Shorney, George born 1848 in Cannington, Somerset to... William Silke and Sarah Western, William born 1794 in Otterhampton, Somerset to... John Silke and Mary. I have most of the sideways branches of these families but have not managed to get back any further than late 1700's. I have some photos and have visited some of the graves.
lizjames: If anybody has a link to the Silk family that eventually lived in Blaina Gwent or Monmouthshire, the Silk commission for Welsh Devolution was written by a member of this branch of the family. Sir Paul Silk.
