Descendants of John Longhurst, revised

John Longhurst, who lived in Ockley Surrey England in the 1500's, is a starting point for a record of descendants leading up to 1787, to the birth of Joseph Longhurst. Joseph and his family, including son James, were the first ancestral Longhursts to settle in Canada. Alfred Thomas Burton Longhurst is a descendant of Joseph, through his son James. If John is considered to be the first generation, Alfred Thomas Burton Longhurst is the fifteenth generation.
