My mother was a QUARTERMAN [1908-1986] and for over 30 years (since the age of 18) I have been gathering as much information as I can from public record offices etc about my family.  I have traced my own family tree back to the 16th century - to Cowley Oxfordshire where the first Quarterman families lived.  Not until the Industrial Revolution in the early 19th century did they disperse all around the country - County Durham, Pembroke etc.  and London.

I used the Web about 18 months ago to make contact with other Quarterman's who were registered on ICQ and got several responses, including from USA, Australia and New Zealand, but being a very busy person I did not have the time to send a lot of replies and I'm sure many of those I contacted will think I was a flash in the pan!! Not so!!!

I have a brief summary that I compiled covering all the significant periods and places, which I will willingly send to anyone who would like it.

My cousin John Quarterman and his son Philip (now aged 20) are the only ones left in my line that still have the Quarterman name.  When my mother died a privately printed book listing the pedigrees of all families in the Parish of Thame passed to John.  This includes the family tree of the Quarterman's from the 12th century to the 15th... but I was never able to make the connection with my own tree!!!  One day perhaps!!!

I hope this contribution is of interest to some of you out there.
