I have received a genealogy report from Claire Smith-Burns (claireburns(at)telus(dot)net), it is based on John STRANGE born at Cerne Abbas c1750, died 1804 and was married to Grace COOMS. Click for the PDF file
Claire also sent me a transcription of the will of Grace STRANGE, PRO Catalogue Ref.:Prob 11/1526, 7th June 1811, proved with a codicil 15th October 1811. Click here for an RTF file
Claire said, "I am not descended from the STRANGE family but rather from the COOMBS family of Cerne Abbas, Dorset. I have done extensive research on this family and actually visited Cerne Abbas in May. Grace (COOMBS) STRANGE'S parents are my 7th Great-grandparents. I am descended through two of Grace's brothers (Robert & James) as the son of James COOMBS married the daughter of Robert COOMBS (first cousins)".

From: "Frank Strange" (Frank(dot)Strange(at)tpi(dot)net) I have been researching my family name for some years. They were in Shaftsbury in Dorset in the late 1800's and earlier in other Dorset towns and villages in that part of Dorset. My great grandfather Frederick William Strange moved to London when working for the railways.
1 Frederick William Strange; dob: 25 Oct 1860 Shaftsbury, Dorset; dod: Mar 1901
Hence my GG Grandmother and her daughter-in-law my G Grandmother both had Strange relations. If you have any info on the Goodfellow or the Drake family through your Strange researches, I would really appreciate it, as I am a complete amateur at this game.

Patrick Strange made the observations that Henry Strange (Captain Harry Strange) was a very famous Thames Sailing Barge master, said to be unsurpassed in his chosen profession. "Cock O' The Walk" was a large ketch rigged type of barge called a "Boomie", sadly sunk in the first war. There was also another very well known barge master called Captain Tom Strange, Captain Harry's brother. He guessed that Dick Strange, H. Strange and Jack Strange would all most certainly been relatives of Captain Harry and brother Tom. Any way if anyone is interested there is quite a lot about the brothers and their exploits in "Sailing Barges" by Frank G.G.Carr, (which is wonderful book in its own right).
