Researcher: Sharon Oborne MacKenzie

I am searching the Oborne family in Canada - our original family members came from Dorset or Somerset - there is a mention of St.Cuthbert.
I am searching for information on: William Oborne - born late 1700's wife Martha Rawlins
Also - James Oborne Sr. that went from Somerset to the province of Quebec in March 1856. James was born in 1807. Also is wife - Mary Young - of the same area - further conversations with other members make me wonder if these people were from the Oborne or Dorset area and later went to Somerset.
Also George or Dilinda Priest - from Gurney Island - perhaps Gurnsey Island - but was told that there was a Gurney Slade - Dilinda born probably in the 1840's.
Any informaton would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

In 1841,1851 the family were in Wareham. James LUCAS married Ann ??. Children were Annie(m Skinner), Charles (m a BEST) and Jane. There are three Marriages that match in Dorset and we think it is James Lucas of Nether Cerne marrying Ann OLD at Church Knowle. Our ANN is born in Charminster but we can't find her... We have a LOT of info on LUCAS' in the area from Dorchester to Purbeck. James and Ann's Daughter Annie married John Skinner from Organford. - BROWN, DOMINEY, and FANCY are all ancestors down this line. Any LUCAS information welcome. If I have to get every LUCAS line in DORSET to sort this out then I will.
