I have been contacted by a researcher, David Squirrell, who has been  researching the surname "Squirrell". 

He tells me that a descendant of Paul Truefitt was:

-  Ann Squirrell b: Abt. 1808 in Suffolk, England m: 08 March 1829 in Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland Father: William Squirrell Mother: Jane Martel Reference #: A5248

If anybody has any information about the Squirrell family, could they please email me so that I can pass it on to the researcher.    

Thank you.    Peter Stubbs.
