I'm Megi i live in the states, i am Married to Jones for 17 years now we have 3 wonderful kids, Claire, Melisa, and Sarah. they are the most wonderful kids any one could want to have. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Odumodu Ibuka which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I was searching for a good spell caster that can solve my problems. I came across series of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i want to share this experience and testimonies for all of you Jones i were married for 2 years and was transferred to work out side the state, for a 4 years contract for the first year every thing was good we were fine talking to each other on the phone and going on well like a family, but after some time he started pulling back and was getting involved with another woman, lived together with the woman to the extent that he no longer calls me and just forget about me like i was not there. so i would cry every day and night wishing he didn't travel at all. till one faithful day a friend told me about a Spell Doctor whom she was introduced to. so i got in contact with him and then we prayed together and and then we went into a programme got some stuffs that he needed and thats it. after some time Jesus my husband called me back again and was apologizing and now we are happily married together with these wonderful kids. Thanks to Dr Odumodu for aiding me May God bless you abundantly. feel free to write him via Email: email@example.com for any of your issues.
i am giving this testimony cos l am happy
My name is mrs. Deborah Collins from Houston,taxes.i never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once. when i went to Africa in January this year on a business summit. i ment a man called dr. Atakpo.He is powerful he could help you cast a spells to bring back my love’s gone,misbehaving lover looking for some one to love you, bring back lost money and magic money spell or spell for a good job.i’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 2 years… i really loved him, but his mother was against me and he had no good paying job. so when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him..at first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. and in 6 days when i returned to taxes, my boyfriend (is now my husband ) he called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married..i didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do… well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got a new job and our lives became much better. in case anyone needs the spell caster for some help, email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Great Atakpo i thank you very much thank you in 1000000 times.. if not you i would have been losted and wasted thank you.

I too am descended from the Frankum family, John Frankum and Esther Gritt were my 4 x great grandparents. I have done lots of research for births/marriages/deaths on my tree which is uploaded to ancestry.co.uk if you wished to view it.
Hi All - I know that I am related to the Buckland family from Chipping Camden Gloucestershire. My Gran was Elizabeth Buckland and there were many brothers and sister - very interested in the family. Thank you
I'm researching the following family names - Carey, Dighton (Deighton), and Harris - all in the Kent, Surrey, Suffolk, Bucks, Beds, Herts and Hampshire areas. Names include Dangerfield Carey, Samson Carey, Levi Carey, Lawrence Dighton, Richelda Dighton, and John Harris.
I can provide DOB for most of them.
Hi i was looking up my greatgreatgrandmother Esther Gritt on google and found from this site, 2nd June 2011...John and Jemima born on 3 Oct1817 and 2Dec1812 resp, and baptised in St Botolph....Henry`s parents were John and Esther grandparents George and Kesia...Hampshire is father was Henry son of John Frankum and Esther Gritt his greatgrandparents were George Frankum and Kezia Bull.... . Henry was my greatgrandfather born Whitchurch Hampshire, he was son of John and Esther and grandson of George and Kezia Frankum, he was married to Sarah Ann Ireland, they had three sons Thomas born 1878, William born 1879 and Henry born 1881 all born Tadley hampshire.

sorry it's taken so long to get back to you computers been on the blink my email email@example.com look forward to hearing from you.
hello lisa (pagberry) where are you i would like to get in touch please send your email address regards uni
hello pagberry ,where are you. i would like to get in touch with you, where do i get your email address from or who regards unity
hello pagberry i dont now how to email you with out your email address so i hope you read this and tell me how ok will be watching out for you regards unity ps sorry i took so long in getting back here
It was great to catch up with you! I have some more information. I don't actually descend down the Deighton line.
My grandmother is Elizabeth Carey (1927) her father is Dangerfield (1888) and Mother Rose-Hannah O'Connor. Dangerfield's father is Levi b.1853 ish, whose brother was Samson (1852) his son was Samson (1885 who married Julia O'Connor sister of Rose-Hannah).
So Dangerfield (1888) and Samson (1885) are cousins. Samson (1885) had a sister Patience who I believe is your mother.
So my Great-Grandfather is cousin with your Mother.
It gets very confusing at times as Samson, Levi, Dangerfield and Elizabeth are extremely common names in the family.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Does anyone know if the great Australian tenor, Donald Smith, whose grandson is Jason Cundy, had romany roots? He was my fathers cousin.
I've been searching the Smiths and have found John Smith and Phoebe Baker had a son and daughter, John and Jemima born on 3 Oct 1817 and 2 Dec 1812 resp. and baptised in St Botolph without Aldgate, Middlesex, London on 22 Oct 1817. John Smith, the father, was recorded as a Shoemaker of Harrow Alley.
Phoebe Baker, the mother, appears to have been born to Fras Baker and Eleanor and baptised in Teddington, Middlesex in 1793.
John the father could be the one in the 1861 census listed as a retd merchant aged 68. He lived at 53 Hampton Rd, Twickenham at that time. There was a Henry Smith with his family next door at 54 Hampton Rd.
I haven't discovered how John came to be in Australia. He married a scottish emigrant Isabella Donald in 1846 in Ipswich, Qld., and his occupation was listed as sawyer. Together he and Isabella founded a very large family of Smiths in the Pine Rivers district outside Brisbane.
Donald Smith the opera singer was one of their son Walters grandchildren. I have a photo of Walter that I can post on this site. Plus a photo of his sons including Donald Smiths father. They all appear to have very dark eyes altho the photos are black and white or sepia.
My father also had very dark eyes and was often mistaken for Spanish or Aboriginal.
Also, does anyone know if Who Do You Think You Are has done a segment on Jason Cundy since he's a famous Chelsea footballer?
It comes in handy have famous relatives in family history research sometimes.
Also, I believe a John Smith was "head" of the romany in Britain not long ago and he had a besutiful voice also, so maybe, just maybe, we are all related.
My partner here in Alice Springs is descended from the Hungarian Romanis through his father, whose parents were both Romani. Mihael Leitinger was born in Ruma when it was part of Hungary we believe, but that's another search.
It would be amazing to discover that I was indeed of romany descent, and have found my other half also of romany descent, in the middle of the Australian outback.
Love to hear from any rellies out there.

Hi, We've been researching our family histories now for over 20 years and many of our lines have ended up as Gypsies, notably Scottish Border Gypsies. Can we mention but one stumbling block here. My Great Grandma was ELIZA WATSON born and lived in and around Selkirk all her life from circa 1829 - 1900. ELIZA was 'as black as coal' [as described to me] and used to smoke a white clay cutty pipe. We have been told that the family moved circa 1900 to either Swinton in Berwickshire or Teesside at about that time. If anyone has knowledge of the black skinned gypsies [Watson or any other name] then we'd love to here about it. Trying to get family information and hopefully a photo of Eliza. Many thanks. Patsy and Ian Patterson
Lovely website - no Romany genes myself sadly, but of great interest nonetheless!
I am trying to trace my family history - here is what I know already:
My grandmother is Elizabeth Carey. She was born in 1927 on Green Street Green, in between Lanes End and Longfield in Kent. This was a gypsy camp and she was Christened in St. Luke's church on the green not long after. All of her brothers and sisters including Dangerfield. Levi, Lawrence and Catherine were born there or Sidcup, Kent and Christened in the Church.
Only her 2 youngest siblings, Julia and James were born in a house in Lanes End.
Her father was called Dangerfield and apparently he had another family but we do not know who. There are rumours he saw someone called Paschy or Paschun who came from Belvedere and my father remebers visiting them on the marshes there. What goes with this story is that 3 children were christened at the same time, one named Joseph, yet the brother joseph my grandmother remebers was born a good 6-7 years after this christening (although both Josephs and all the other children were christened to the same parents) - the oldest 3 children were born a good 6-7 years before the rest.
Apart from this we don't know a great deal about the family.
My grandmother's paternal grandfather was apparently an Irish Policeman of the name Timothy O'Connor - the O'Connor family were recorded as living in London until 1907 when Tim died in the Dartford area, his family went into Dartford Workhouse excepting the two older girls, Rose-Hannah O'Connor (my grandmother's mother) and Johannah O'Connor and the two youngest Bridget and Nellie (Helen). In 1911 when the family was recorded in the Workhouse they would have been aged around 20 and 15, 7 and 5 respectively and there are no records of them anywhere. It is believed that Rose-Hannah had already met Dangerfield and was living in the camp with Johannah and the two youngest girls bringing them up as their own and maybe even as Carey's.
I would be grateful if anyone at all has any information about any of the Carey family from any of the areas mentioned or if anyone could put me in touch with someone who would know.
Unfortunately my Gran is getting forgetful in her old age and seems to have a stigma attached to the fact she was born in the Gypsy camp. I think its brilliant to learn about the history of my family and I am fascinated to find out more.

Hi everyone, I see Rebecka asking about Romani jib - tounge. there are many dialects but in the Uk whats called Romanichal = English Gpysies & Welsh Kale =Welsh Gypsies. are spoken even if very Poggardi = broken down.
Much has been lost and both are Anglo Romanes now = said Rom -a-nees , I see the word mort (that is Cant spoken by Travellers such as Irish not Romani. Romni is indeed a Woman but a married woman.
.there does not seem to be much use of words used today when speaking to a male or when speaking to a female.
A pity really , however there are many books etc but that is hard as Romanes is a language best learned by hearing it spoken .
I hope one day more folkie will make the effort to relearn , Amarie Jib kodo savvo Romani yechorus Rokkar'd = our language that all Romani once spoke.
Jasa sas Duval Folkendi.
So glad you are here, only just learning about my ancestors and imagining the lives they led. Really interested in learning one of the languages, as I was told there were several.
I am finding it difficult tracing my family, and never knew them. But I will not give up.
I am a descendent of a mix of several travelling families including Price?pries?/ Taylor, and Smith to Rogerson.
I would appreciate any information about Fuchsia Smith b. aprox 1880 married in 1913 to Joseph Rogerson. Not 100% certain yet but believe she was my Great Grandma.
Please keep the stories and history of the culture, I would love more information about where particular families travelled at certain times as I think it would help people like me, who have relatively little information.
Looking for any information on the last gypsy queen who had a traditional burial of the burning of the caravan on bow common in London
approx 1881 - 1893

I would just like to leave a message for Sylvia Bolt (nee Frankum) who wrote on here last year ( but I have only just seen it!)
Your grandfather William Frankum was the second son of Henry Frankum and Sarah Ann Ireland. Henry's parents were John and Esther grandparents were George and Kesia.
William had an older brother Thomas b. c 1878 and a younger brother Henry J b.c1881
Henry Snr must have died about that time and Sara Ann went on to marry my grandfather Alfred Bond. I am not sure if the Bonds were Romanys, but they were certainly travellers. Alfred had first married Mary Elizabeth Millard and they had children, William,Edith,Alfred,Thomas,Florence Rose and James.
In 1891 Alfred and Sarah were in Finchampstead with Henry J, Florence, Frederick C, Kate and Alice. Ethel May and Sarah Jane followed.
William Frankum was bought up by his mother's mother Louisa Ireland.
Alfred Bond died in 1903 and it was William Frankum who was the informant. He died in Alton Workhouse and William lived at 27 Albert Terrace Alton.
I am the daughter of Don Smith, son of Ethel May Bond and would love to know more about William Frankum...so if Sylvia sees this...please get in touch!
Thank you. x
My name is Mandi Hagley Allison. My father was Stan Hagley and his father Stan Hagley, a gypsy and hawker from the East End of London.His mother was Violet Doyle, nee Smith, a Gypsy. They travelled around Kent hop picking. They had an aitchin tan in Dover and Maidstone. My dad was traumatically separated from his parents, brothers and sisters by the system in 1935. He was sent, alone, with no family, to Barnado's in Stephney Causeway. He was fostered out in Fordham,Cambridgeshire.
On the day before his 13th birthday he was abruptly removed from his foster parents by Dr Barnadoes and sent to Russell Coates naval school, Dorset before being heavily persuaded by the training school to join the Merchant Navy as a deck boy. I and my mother have found in text books of my fathers from that time a message written by my dad. He wrote he was a gypsy healer, shaman, and wanted to be employed as a healer, not a sailor. He always told me that.
Although technically my dad was separated from his family and culture in reality he visted lilian Doyle, his sister, and often went travelling with her and her family in the kent area. He also reunited with his half brother Edward Law and his sister Rose Hagley and Emily Doyle.Rose Hagley had been brought up by a Mrs Edwards, possibly related, in Maidstone.
His mother's parents were Jack and Emily Smith born 1876 and 1883 of Skellington Road, East Ham, london. His maternal Uncles were John Smith born1903,and William Smith born 1918. Maternal aunts Amy Smith born 1899, Lily Thompson, Gladys Smith, Ivy Smith born 1920.
He was loyal to his Romany culture and brought me up in the same traditions. I am proud to be a Romany Gypsy. My dad often spoke of taking me on the road and in deed i , my dad, and my mum were going to do just that when he was tragically killed in a terrible accident at sea.
I am very proud of my Romany culture and of my dad. I admired him so much. I was only 9 when he died . I had so much to learn about him. However I do not know the whereabouts of my fathers relatives or descendents. Any information would be really appreciated. I know I cannot bring my dadus back but I hope by learning more about his gypsy roots I can understand him better and I will feel closer to him in everyday life. I have been asking for this information since I was 9 ! If you can help by giving info about any genuine gypsy relatives please email HagleyAllison@hotmail.co.uk
Kushti Bok and thank you, Rom.
Thank you from our gypsy family
Mandi and Roger HagleyAllison

My Grandfather used to sell Linonolium and my Grandmother used to sell Second Hand clothes on Leeds Market they used travel all over Yorkshire and Lancashire in a caravan untill my my Uncle Colin Waite Hunter died in in the caravan after it caught fire in Leeds on BrickField behind Winker Green, Leeds in 1925 he was 2 years old. After that the moved into a house at Winker Green, Leeds and stopped traveling. I've traced my mother's side of the family back to 1777 to Robert Hunter he was born at Dragley Beck, Ulverston. he was a Razor Grinder. My Mothers Grandmother was Isabella Stewart she married David Hunter her Father was called George and he was married to Constance Grey. I keep hitting a brick wall concerning Harry Hunter. Thank You.
Hallo i am new to this site, I think it is fantastic. It is layed out very well. My family are the Price's and they settled in Barry South Wales. Cradock (Creddy) and Catherine, they had three daughters, Ivy, Emily, and Jesephine (Pearl) they had one son but he died as a young boy. Also I had an uncle Ivor Price who lived in the village and with his horse and wagon he would go around the streets shouting out "any old iron, tin, rags and bones"? If any one has any info. on my family I would really appreciate it. In 1963 my grandad died (Cradock, Creddy ) and our caravan was burnt on the common.

Well Rebekka iv heard all sorts depends alot what part of the country you are from also the way in which its spelt is not always the way its pronounced !! strong regional accents play a large part , some folk i know say ols mort as in say their missus in a nice kinda wat whereas other travellers have said to me they think old mort is not right and is a kinda derogatory term?like some say gavvers(policeman) others muskras think maybe a north and south divide there? I think what ever you have been brought up with in your neck of the woods is ok and folks all have different little sayings while some words are universal? but im no expert far from it so maybe some one else knows the answer.Oh by the way havent heard the first phrase you have for thankyou but the second iv heard and seen many times and nearly alweays spelt different LOL.
Some people say nicetookah for 'Thankyou', and others say parruka tutu. Like the word for wife, some say maneesha - but is this Romany? Or should we say Romni? If Romni is woman, then what about 'Mort', surely that means woman also?? Would love some advice on this! My ancestors were Beeney's, Roberts, Ripley's, Elliott's, and Boxall's.
Annette would that be the William son of James Gritt and Sarah Harris?
Some of my ancestors in the early 1800s were Gritts and Bulls, hawkers and sweeps. The familes were quite and some at least did not seem to be travellers; others seemed to have a connection with Teddington in Middx although their main home was around Medstead and Shirley. William Gritt couldn't decide where he came from and said Middx on one Census and Hampshire on others. Some children in the middle were born in Middx though all the rest in Hampshire. Can anyone explain what that connection is? Why travel to Middx and back again on a number of occasions across a century? Many moved to London, but why visit briefly and return?
All help appreciated.
Fascinating site; still waiting for a photo of a relevant Gritt or Bull.
