Hello Kathleeen

Good to hear from you!

I have now sent you the information requested. There are five attachments and all are in .jpg (picture) format, so you should not experience any problems opening them.

I do hope that they will be of interest.

Incidentally, when I contacted Fackrell's Farm some five years ago there was someone of that name in the household at that time and it is possible that they may still be there.

With warm good wishes for your further research! One excellent research tip is that, whenever searching for a name or location always start with a 'Google' Search - firstly with the name in quotes e.g. "James Fackrell" then try adding a location e.g. "James Fackrell" North Petherton.

If there are no hits, try dropping the quotes. Then try the same thing adding the word Genealogy at the end.

This often leads to both 'Genealogical' and 'Family' websites where you may find Family Trees of the very family that you are researching.

Starting with this technique can prove invaluable to your research and I have had fantastic results using it. Sadly, very few people seem to realise the sheer power of this method in finding genealogical and other information that is already available online in some form or other.

A quick search has just shown that the National Archives at Kew holds a number of documents relating to the Fackrell name, including military records. Some of these records relate to Somerset. There is also a reference to the Somersetshire Records Office holding an archaeological document in which the Fackrell name is included.

I do hope that this will prove of further help!

With all good wishes,

David
