I'm sure you are absolutely right about what you would have found from the phone book. I'm not great at searching either but I do have some possible sources. I'll try to get in touch with the guy from the Isle of Wight to see if he has made any progress. I'll also contact another Englishman named Byham. He's interested in finding out about the Yank crowd. He has some different theories about the part of England we started from.
