All of the following names are ancestors from Bures or the Lamarsh
Abraham's mother was Louisa Hayward (1851-1938). Abraham's
father was Edwin C. Cansdale 1851 - 1935.
Our Cansdale lineage goes back to
Henry Cansdale. We have no dates for him, but his son Thomas
Cansdale lived from 1665 to 1742.
Louisa's parents were Thomas Hayward 1845 - 1860 and Sarah Clampin
1812 - 1862.
Thomas Hayward's parents Joseph
Hayward of Lamarsh 1780 - 1862, and Mary Tracy 1780 - 1850.
(The Tracy lineage gets really interesting,
but that's another story. Do you know of any Tracy's in Bures?)
Our earliest Hayward record is of
Jonathan Hayward b. 1725 but no place of birth is recorded.
According to records from ancestry.com his son Jonathan was born
in Lexden in 1755. His wife, Judith/Juda Eves/Eaves is my
5th great grandmother and was born in Lamarsh about 1745. I wonder
if the names Eaves is familiar to you.

James Bray's parents were Henry

The earliest Layzel in our tree is my 7th great grandfather Thomas
Layzel 1712 - 1792. His wife was Elizabeth Marshall 1718 - 1797
I also have a great uncle Abraham Cansdale 1864 - 1950 who
