A collection of historical and genalogical records
Looking for a connection between the three Douglass, Thomas, William, and James, who in 1503 changed their surname to Drysdale to escape persecution, and James Drysdale, below.
My family tree shows a James Drysdale married to a Christine Curry (no dates) having five children, Henry, George, Janet, Agnes, and James Keith Drysdale. James Keith died 11/11/1917, and was married twice, first to Margaret Browne, then Mary Pearce. From the marriage with Mary Pearce, they had three children, Ethel Margaret, Mabel Avelyn, and Douglas James Drysdale. Ethel Margaret Drysdale, b.7/20/1881, d. 5/31/1955, was born in Marylebone, London and married Garfield William Steves (b.3/4/1883, d 2/20/195400 and resided in Flushing, New York, having two children, Garfield Douglas Steve, and William Harry Steves, I am the son of William Harry Steves.
A search of Drysdales in London show many of them in the Marylebone section of London.
It would be much appreciated if anyone has the missing links for connection.
