... I concentrate my efforts on another English side of my mother's
family (Blanche Louisa's husband James Large was of Wiltshire stock),
centred on Purton in Wiltshire, for which, along with neighbouring Rodbourne
Cheney, I am OPC. I am lucky to have documents that were brought to Canada
when the family left Lydiard Millicent for Adelaide township, Middlesex
county, Canada West, United Province of the Canadas (the two Canadas were
united in 1840 as one of Lord Durham's recommendations for dealing with the
French in Lower Canada and any future chance of rebellion in either of the
Canadas) by my great-great grandparents William Large (1805-1871) and his
wife (and third cousin!) Mary Ann Plummer (1804-1880) dating from the 18th
and 19th centuries, including the will of William's rich uncle another
William Large (1763-1850), of Purton, which helped to centre my research on
the right, principal parish from the outset.
