Research on the Cruse side of the Family Tree - Funnell / Chapman / Elliot
This has been one of our most successful lines of research, going back to Thomas Funnell and Elizabeth Elliot in the early 1700s. Thomas & Elizabeth had three earlier children, not shown for clarity, and Eileen is descended from the John Funnell = Sarah Kirk Horn marriage. With the help of others we have traced over 160 direct descendants of this marriage with Funnell as their surname, mostly families from the Little Clacton area in Essex, UK, some of whom emigrated overseas, and we are in contact with Funnell descendants in Australia and the UK. Elizabeth Elliot is the only Elliot we have in our family tree so far.
