Chris can trace his female line line back just over 200 years to Elizabeth Hall perhaps of Stetchworth, Cambridgeshire at the end of the 18th century. By the mid 1800s his female ancestry was living in Middlesex (Greater London, England), leaving for Essex by 1921 where they remained except for the war years, 1939-1945, see below.

  • Elizabeth Hall's Descendant Tree

  • - The above is Elizabeth's outline descendant tree in txt format and includes Chris's female line.

    Mary Ann Milward is Chris's great great grandmother and not related to his other Milwards from Derbyshire. Her parents John Millard (spelling may vary) and Elizabeth Hall married 26-Apr-1818 in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire. He came from Chatteris, while she came from Wisbech or Stetchworth and may have had a brother, Jacob. They died in Winwick, Huntingdonshire in 1838 and 1842, respectively. John was a carrier in 1840, although maybe a plumber in 1841. Unfortunately, we know nothing of the couple's life between 1820 and 1840.
