Looking for the father of Thomas Deakin who was born in Moreton Corbet near Shrewsbury 29th July 1739. He may have been christened in Sutton Coldfield and almost certainly lived and died there. I believe he married an Elizabeth Taylor. His father may have come from Marchamley, Moreton Corbet or the Preston Brockhurst area and was born around 1710. His decendants all lived around Sutton Coldfield and later Aston in Birmingham.

red mail Reece, Pee and Ashwood families
I would be pleeased to hear from anyone who has opne or all of these families in their line. Martha Ashwood married George Reece at Old Swinford in 1857.George Reece's sister Emma married John Pee at Barrow in 1845. I have the Ashwood line sorted out but not so the Reece and Pee families. Both names seem to come from around Much Wenlock and Bridgenorth but in a large radius.The Pee and Reece families mentioned here migrated to New Zealand in 1864.
