  1. Hello. Most recently whilst expanding my family tree I discovered that Sir Henry Williams Cromwell is a distant great grandfather. This astounds me to discover such a connection. Grahame.

    • Dear Grahame – The Cromwell Association may be your best source of information about you distant great grandfather. You may be aware that many of the Cromwell family reverted to their original (Welsh) family surname of Williams after the Restoration.
