Be careful using this 1911 edition. Several entries were fabricated by Ms Hardy and they never existed. You should cross check with the 1958 revised edition to see if the person has been "de-fabricated"

I was able to find more information regarding the history of my family. The only thing I missed was the list of names and where it is found. I suggest you look at the end of the book and seek the names you wish to find. Write down any and all names and page numbers. Then, enjoy. BTW, the names I found in my family were Armisted, Cary & Carter but Carr, Minor & Nicholas were not. Guess you cannot write everyone. LOL
