About Hammond, Phillips, Melvin, Butler & more!!!!
Please sign in to see more.
I began my research in March 2006, and had recently begun to think I was reaching the  end of the research road ...... but since then I have visited more relatives,  gathered more stories, uncovered more links and added more names and photos to this  website - as well as undercovering the badly overgrown grave of Zebulon and Betsy Butler (together  with his mother Mary, and daughter Elizabeth Wright Butler) at Sedgley. Most recently I have been  assisted by Ken Scott via ancestry.co.uk and am now focused on the Winsper family - with Facebook  proving to be a great help - Facebook has also connected me to the Warltire family. I have contacted many "new" relatives previously, and now I  am able to share these details with those who may share my interest via Tribal Pages.  There are three albums on this site, one of family photos, one containing  certificates and newspaper articles and one containing photos of family gravestones -  Any photos/certificates/information you may wish to add would be much  appreciated .... contact me for details on how to send them to me.

The main family remains in Walsall, West Midlands - but many relatives are  known to have moved away at some point in history, some even outside the UK.

The Hammond family is traced back to the 1700s in Ludlow and the surrounding  area in Shropshire, the Phillips family also go back to Shropshire, the Butler  family have always been in and around the Black Country - Tipton and Darlaston  especially and the Melvins came across from southern Ireland in the 1840s,  stopping first in Liverpool before making their way to Walsall, presumably for  work during the hard times in Ireland.

Should you find any inaccuracies, errors or omissions, please let me know. 

Hope you enjoy your visit - however you have been directed to this site .... ..... PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS IN THE GUESTBOOK...... 
 and save this site to your favourites and come back often as I am still updating the  content.

If we are connected via a distant branch of my tree and you see I have not researched  it fully, do let me know and I will try to delve further back specifically for you.

Best wishes - hope you enjoy this look back at our family. THANKS FOR LOOKING !!
