My Ancestors

Spencer family in Bath c1880

Welcome to the home of the research into my ancestors.

I have spent many hours in research and documentation of my ancestors.

I have researched my direct lines: Spencer and LeFevre (LeFever) for my paternal side and Bramble and Binstead for my maternal side. My earliest Spencer ancestors are from Somerset, the Lefever line is from the east end of London and possibly France, the Bramble and Binstead lines are from Hampshire. The Spencer line has proved to be the most challenging and Edward Spencer (1768-1823) is currently my ‘brick wall’ ancestor as I have yet to find his birth place despite some 20 years searching for it.

I have also included a small amount of information on the Sikora (Poland) and Spöker (Switzerland) lines of my wife.

I hope that the information published here is of interest.

I wish to thank all the other researchers who have contributed information to enhance my knowledge of my ancestors, some of their freely given information is included on this site.

If you have anything to add / correct please contact me.
