The BAYFIELDS have married into a few of the branches of our tree. Some originally came from Cromer, some from West Beckham.

One was a cavalry soldier in the Indian Mutiny. One was drowned at sea in the November 1861 hurricane.

This family forms a link between the BEALES and the BLAKE family much earlier than the marriage between my mother Dinah and my step father Basil.

Today (27th September 2012) I am uploading a few more BAYFIELD and RANSOM people. A new discovery is that some went to India and worked with Bengal Marine. I have never delved into India genealogy, so it may take me a wee while to find my way around. Look for Shearman RANSOM.

Please expect the data contained in this part of the website to change frequently. Also note that not all the people are related to us, or even to each other. Please tell me if there is anything that I have wrong. All contributions gratefully accepted.
