Comments about this page

I am not sure if my ancestral connection to people in Meldreth will be of interest but, having been invited to speak at Holy Trinity Church in July 2014, I checked the church website and found a link to this site where I found reference to some very distant maternal relatives - the Pepper, Payne and Waller families. Kezia b.1782 is my GGGG Grandmother. My GG Grandmother Mary Jane C Payne b.1849 in Shepreth, married my GG Grandfather George Ingrey, from Melbourn, in Sept. 1869.  I can trace the Payne family back to William Payne, who married Sarah Waller on 13th Oct. 1784 in Meldreth.
