More Photos & Notes
Information on the Palmer family has been researched by myself at Bristol, Gloucester and Taunton Record Offices, and by John Palmer (Portishead) and Mike Sainsbury (Canada) using a variety of sources. Information about the Selby family has come from reseach by Rosemary Chalmers (Australia) and Les Haigh (Berkshire) as well as my research at Wiltshire and Swindon Archives. My thanks to Rosemary, Les and Mike for allowing me to use their data.
