Lisa, I have recently started a family tree and it appears that you and I are related through William Henry Walkey, who died tragically drowned in 1886 aged 49 years old. This occured whilst trying to cross from Mumbles Lighthouse to the mainland. One of his sons, John Alfred Walkey is my great-great-grandfather. From what I have researched William had 6 childern including John Alfred, i.e. James, William, Joseph, Richard and Elizabeth. William was born in Cornwall, indeed I have traced a direct line back to the Walkeys in Cornwall as far back as the 1680s. I would be very interested to know who your direct ancestors are on the Walkey side. If I can be of any more assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
