This family name is LAMPREY, not LAMPHREY or LAMPHEY as they are identified in the family records of the Hyde family of Southborough.
I was working from the handwritten records of the family, typing away in my family tree. Well, I couldn't find this family in the vital records or in the census.
Clearly, something was wrong.
Sometimes, a gravestone can be a huge help with a simple problem. "There, I thought, Gotcha." Don't make spelling assumptions. I felt very smug.
So once I got the spelling in correctly, the records literally leapt off the monitor.
But, there was still problems ahead.
