I had a look at the
January 1593 - Marriage of Gilbtus Taylier and Suzanna Vicars
February 1595 - Marriage of Willus Belfeld and Agnes Vicars
As you see, back then we could be faced with a different spelling of our surname. Why is life so complicated?
Anyhow, I shall keep looking when I have the opportunity.
On another note, I have some free Web space from my ISP and have decided to set up a Vickers (UK) Family Page. My first attempt is at http://freespace.virgin.net/chris.vickers if you care to take a look. I plan to add a Messages page and if you have no objection would like to include your interest. I need something to start it with!
