For several years I have not participated in the Family Tree Forum, firstly I find it very difficult to navigate also at the time that I first joined my family had a great mystery that needed to be solved.
It has taken me three years to solve this mystery and have now completed my family tree At the
moment I am not even sure that I am doing the correct thing to attract the attention of other members who may wish to share in my research and notes. However, after taking about 24 hours to sign in I can now tell everyone of my observations. I noticed the other day that there were people inquiring to Uncle John about the Trotman family and the time that they were in Sunderland. Uncle John correctly mentioned that the family had come from Gosport in Hants before Sunderland, but if its any help to those of you researching this family I can take you back to where it all began or should I say to where the oldest records have been found in 1568. My family history includes nearly one hanging of my ggg grandfather and just to make you all rush to the reply button, after 1838 biologically we are not Trotmans atall. All the records that I have prior to the start of the census in 1841 are all documented so there is no conjecture.
