I am trying to make contact with living males with surname ORCHARD whose ancestors were from Yate and Old Sodbury. I am almost certain my Great-Grandfather James Orchard is the James Orchard baptised 27 March 1803, Old Sodsbury son of James Orchard 1763 Yate/1851 Old Sodbury and Hannah Carter. I want to sponsor a Y-DNA of a living male Orchard from the area to confirm if my South African Orchards ancestors were from the area. My James Orchard married in Cape Town in 1832 and indicated his previous residence was Bristol. Kind regards. Evan Franklin
I am looking for the father and mother of this man in born in Cheltenham, Gloustershire - he was born in 1794 and married Betty (?Somers). I think the father was also Thomas Bastin and the mother was Ann - last name unknown. The family story is that they were Hugonots from France originally. Can anyone confirm any of these facts.
