Hi Janice: Looks like I just sent a reply to an older message without realizing we had already been in contact. I am not sure where you have progressed to since then but I have found some ancestors for the Quicks and Widlakes.
I have re-started my quest for Henry Bowering (Wedlakes) father. Have you any joy? My one thought is that whoever ot was he probably was local. There is a Henry Bowering marrying Betty Williams in St Decumans in 1808???
By the way my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
