(1) Thomas Dering, Lieutenant of the Royal Marines. He died in 1804 and his Will (made 1798)was proved in 1806. He married Mary Linzee Smith in
1797 and I believe he may have been born around 1775(and died at the age of 28).
(2) Mary Linzee Smith his wife. I believe she may be a member of a family called Smith who were masons/builders. The witness to Thomas Dering's will was a Richard Smith.
(3) Susan Dering who I believe was Thomas and Susan's daughter, born 1803, and married W. Brinsley Hewitson Nicholson, I believe in 1822. She is the ancestress of my father's mother.
I would be grateful for any information anyone may have.
