I am presently researching the family name DERRICK. I have through various online contacts managed to trace the family back to 1615, to one Edmund Derrick of Ubley Somerset England.

I am descended from his son John born about 1642, the 14 generations traced to date start in Somerset and migrate to Wiltshire in early 1800's. I would be interested in any information relating to the family particularly the Wiltshire branch 'Moonrakers'.

I am trying to trace a William Derrick born about 1785 in Compton Martin, Somerset. Married Elizabeth Hibberd in 1810 in Winsley, Wiltshire. He is my 4th Great Grandfather, I have his family but need to know when and where he died. I believe it to be after 1840 and before 1849. Lots of Williams' appear on death registers for various counties in and around the West County but which one is him. Can anyone shed some light.
