Carol BENSON [nee DOVASTON] Highbury in North London Hi to all the other DOVASTON's in the world. My direct DOVASTON relatives [father's family] are from Highbury in North London. Still have an Uncle [and cousins] in Newbury Park, London and an Uncle [and cousins] near Bishop Stortford, other cousins spread around London. No close relatives in Australia. I have some family history info and should be able to tie our line with the info on the web site. This is great stuff!!! Thanks to everyone who has helped put this together

John and Sue BURTON England, UK. Daniel DOVASTON was my 8x great grandfather. I'm now building a website to try and show all the DOVASTON branches I know of. Take a look and see if your name's included - if it's not, I'd love to hear from you so I can add the details of your line. Can you help me make any connections between those I have already or add any further details? Best wishes to all the DOVASTON family. Sue

Matthew DOVASTON Hi to all DOVASTONs around the world. Research of my own line has taken me back to Thomas DOVASTON b. West Felton 14 March 1718. I know he married Margaret, but don't know where or when. Can anyone help? Also, their son Thomas b. Great Ness 10 Feb 1754, married I think to Mary JONES 25 June1784 at Ruyton Eleven Town, but no children until Richard 1799. Big gap here, grateful if any one can confirm if I've got it right or wrong. I would be happy to share my research if it will help others [but it's all on paper at the moment!].

Richard PERRY England. I am very interested in tracing one of my relatives who all we know of is her place of birth and her surname, DOVASTON. I have been searching the internet for ages trying to find any trace of her but to no prevail. If you could tell me anything about a DOVASTON from Llanelli (Llanelly) then please email me.
