About the study
In the last couple of years I have broken down a couple of brick walls and have made connections with other descendents in England and Australia. My one name study is just beginning and I am finding it very interesting. I have started collecting birth, marriage and death data for the UK and recently found quite a few for the spelling of WRIDE in Wales.
I am beginning to put together some trees for the Derbyshire, Kent, Surrey and Yorkshire families. Some of those from Derbyshire migrated to New Zealand and I am beginning to gather information on these. Recently I have begun to put together a couple of WRIDE trees, both from Somerset.
Distribution of the name
In September 2016 I decided to do a DNA family finder test but as yet have not come across any close connections, so need to do some more research further back. I have uploaded the results to a few websites. Recently a person who is working on the Attride surname has found that there maybe a connection between us according to his DNA results.
This year I had a test done for the maternal line but is not a part of this study.
