Hi Sally
I am a New Zealand relative. Henry Mylam was my Great x3 Grandfather. My line is from Francis George Cockerill and Janet Kitchen.Their 3rd son John William Herbert Cockerill was my great grandfather and his 3rd daughter May Kitchen Cockerill was my grandmother I have a book on the Cockerill geneology published by Janet Miller. Makes for very interesting reading.

Hello Donna
Thank you for your comment and the reminder that I did not include Janet's 1994 book in my Cockerill blog notes.
