The families of Davis, Gatrell, Bowler & Preston from West Hampshire.

The known surnames of persons in this group to 5th cousin level are; Davis, Barns, Gatrell, & Preston.  There are a number of gaps in our knowledge of ancestors at this level.

The link to the Davis' of Christchurch has been revealed by a link to Lesley Davis, #8302 who has a line back to John Davis, #1445 and Sally Barns, married in Christchurch in 1795, our common ancestors and so confirms this origin.

Another link to this Davis line is from Edward Henry Collington of Poole, #7449 to Lesley Barbara Collington, #8815, his granddaughter.

No other links have come to light at the time of writing, 6/10/19.
