Once again thanks to everyone that has sent me information, including corrections.
Originally set up as The Lees/Culverhouse Tree the site has been split and this is Culverhouse and direct family only.
The asterisk * behind a surname was for my editing but indicates a direct relationship.
I am now receiving information and queries from all corners of the globe, mostly about the Culverhouses but also about Hertfordshire ex-pats and deported convicts. Thanks to all.
Due to misuse I have now suppressed details of living persons.
Photos, comments and any information always welcome, between us we can untangle the branches.
Culverhouse's linked to North America have been suffixed U.S.A. although many lived there during The American Civil War when it was not United.
