September 2011 saw a new milestone in the VICARY one-name study, I reached the 10,000 name mark on my  database. I estimate I have another 10,000 individuals still to identify and place on a tree or a branch but now I am halfway maybe I can see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.

If you have not already contacted me then please do so. With your help I can get the next 10,000 added in less than the twenty years it has so far taken me.

In October I am off to Brighton to search out my own family and try and get back before Joseph Vicary who lived there from 1799 to 1833. He was born in 1763 and married in St Nicholas Church in Brighton in 1799 to Mary Russell and in 1824 to Mary Cripps. Where he was born is still a mystery.
