Hi Tim,

I'll be interested to see what you find.

I haven't come across the Fancourt name until now, but I did a brief look at Fancourts on the Family Search version of the IGI. Caroline's parents and siblings show up in Edenham, but her father at least doesn't seem to have been born there (though the IGI isn't necessarily complete).
There are some Fancourts who might connect in Rutland in the late 1700's and earlier, but there are a few others who might also connect. ( There were also some de Fancourts in Herefordshire in the 11 and 1300's, so they might be interesting to follow up). There are a few sites out there you might check, like Rootsweb or, or you might get lucky and find someone who researches the Fancourt family. I'll poke about a bit and let you know if I find anything.
