Coming soon - the Robey family of Ashby and Melbourne

Thanks to my sister-in-law Carol for recent emails about her research into her dad's family tree, the Robey family of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Melbourne on the Leicestershire / Derbyshire border.

I am very impressed to learn how much research Carol did a number of years back and there was a potential for her tree to link with another researcher who took his Robey tree back to the 1200s in the area.

Now that is impressive and does show that if old church or land records are strong enough for localised families in rural areas then the links can even be made back to Norman times when they first started making proper written records. But we need to do a bit of digging to confirm the link.
