Our Ancestors, Part 10: Wood of Manchester, England

I was fortunate to spend quite a bit of time with my great-grandmother, Ruth Evelyn Wood, who was the wife of my great-grandfather, Lewis Preston Wood.

Ruth's father came from Manchester, England, so it is with great excitement that I embark on my European adventure in 2011 - living in England for 3 years!

Her mother came from Mansfield, Connecticut, and her maternal ancestors are generally found in the Tolland County area.

Generation 1:

1.  Ruth Evelyn Wood (1898-1997)


Generation 2:

2.  John William Wood (1874-1928)

3.  Lulu Gertrude Lyman (1874-1963)


Generation 3:

4.  Thomas Wood (abt. 1845-aft. 1920)

5.  Sarah Ann Gray (abt. 1848-aft. 1920)

6.  William C. Lyman (1840-1920)

7.  Martha M. Barrows (1838-1925)


Generation 4:

8.  John Wood ?

9.  Ann ?

10.  William Gray (abt. 1815-aft. 1891)

11.  Ann Jane Mason (abt. 1816-aft. 1901)

12.  Jacob Lyman (1805-1884)

13.  Dorcas Chapman (abt. 1815-1882)

14.  Marcus Barrows (1806-1895)

15.  Maria Gurley (1807-1887)


Generation 5:

16.  Unknown Wood

17.  Unknown

18.  Unknown

19.  Unknown

20.  Unknown Gray

21.  Unknown

22.  John Mason (abt. 1786-bef. 1861)

23.  Sarah (abt. 1792-aft. 1871)

24.  Jacob Lyman (1773-1858)

25.  Joanna Bolles (abt. 1788-1859)

26.  Benjamin Chapman (1778-1865)

27.  Eleanor Whiting (1783-1864)

28.  Ethan Barrows (1761-1809)

29.  Dinah Hovey (1767-1841)

30.  Ephraim Gurley (1765-1845)

31.  Bethiah Brooks (1767-1844)

At this point, I won't go back further, because there is a huge gap on my great-grandmother's paternal side.  The maternal side is very easy to follow, and does not need elaboration. 

Hopefully a few years in England will help me fill in the missing pieces of this ancestral puzzle!
