SPRAKE Family of Netherbury, Dorset
The family tree of Samuel Sprake and Betty Cook
This page was created 23 April 2005 and last updated 28 April 2019

This page contains the family tree of my Sprake ancestors. In order to clarify the earlier generations I am working with other Sprake family members and attempting to identify all the Sprakes living in the Netherbury region and I have created a separate site SPRAKE Families of Netherbury, Dorset: A collection of family trees and historical references. My great great grandmother Amelia Sprake moved to Somerset and married Thomas Perry in 1855. Three of their grandchildren, brothers Hubert Andrews Perry, Frank Andrews Perry and Cecil Andrews Perry emigrated to Sydney, Australia.
