21-Aug-12 How is that surname spelt?

In Blog, Personal on August 20, 2012 at 8:23 pm

In the blink of an eye, I’ve made startling progress overnight on my goal to meet up with a long lost relative!

Not sure if any of you have used the Ancestry application before and the FreeBMD web site, but by using the combination of both, I have found 6 long lost Great Uncle’s and Aunt’s.

What made the link initially difficult was a birth certificate recording error by my Great Grandfather, who recorded Langthorn instead of Lengthorn.


Doh! Homer Simpson type error from my Great Grandfather.

Of course, although this is all good, I now need to understand what children each of these relations had and see if I can find a long lost Lengthorn.

What might help me is that I have discovered a number of Lengthorn’s on Twitter. As my Grandad used to say, ‘if they have the Lengthorn surname, they must be related’! Let’s hope that he is correct or some of these tweeted earlier today might now have the right hump!

As I publish my blog, I will be close to having 5000 reads for my blogs since January, which makes me extremely proud. A big thanks to Phil Lengthorn, my cousin, for getting me in to this lark!

  1. The posts are great Garry – keep it going! Only one thing to say…..not more Lengthorns!!!!!??
