Lucraft Trees

These are the family trees of all the people named Lucraft that I have managed to trace round the world.

All these people named Lucraft share a common ancestor, Nicholas Luccroft, who married Margaret Westcott in 1691 in the tiny village of Farringdon, east of Exeter.

A few of these links are not yet established. I have the paper version if you contact me.
