This section contains notices and queries about research in progress.
  • There is in existence, somewhere, a 'Zulu Diary' written by George Tree (1857-1942) when he was fighting in the Zulu Wars in Africa. If anyone knows its whereabouts, or indeed has the original or a copy to hand, I should really appreciate access to it.

  • I am indebted to Vivien Norman for new information about the Tree family - updates and photographs have been added to the website..

  • I visited North Devon, Exeter and Somerset in September 2019 to further my research about the Sercombe and Giffard families, which proved successful and informative, and a number of new photos and information have been added to the website..
