North West Kent History Society. "Thank you so much for coming to talk to us. You probably gathered from the applause and the number of questions raised, just how much we enjoyed your talk. We were most impressed, as usual, with the amount of research and your depth of knowledge. You certainly put a different slant on the term Baby Farming. I told my husband all about it and he had thought it was somewhere where they ‘farmed’ babies!!!!"
Mrs Barbara Phillips, Dartford Branch Programme Secretary.

“Lady Mary Teviot gave Bookham U3A Family History Group a wonderful talk on “Under Used Sources” such as Church Wardens Presentations and Accounts, Manorial Records, Coroners’ Reports, Settlement and Removal Orders, Protestation Oaths, Bastardy Bonds, Rogues and Vagabonds Records and Overseers Reports which certainly broadened the research material available to amateur genealogists.”

"Ash U3A Family History Group were pleased to welcome back Lady Teviot for her talk 'Kill or Cure 19th Century Medicine'. The talk incorporated lots of interesting medical facts on how our ancestors may have been treated or in fact meet their demise. These ranged from infant mortality, infections, operations, cholera, immunisation and much more. A truly fascinating, informative talk, that was well presented, we all totally enjoyed it."
This, a subject of interest to many people attending, was discussed by the author in first hand detail of her life on the front as it were. It was highly entertaining and was bound to be a winner from the start. "Heir Hunters" Uckfield Report, Sussex Family History Group - July 2017
Many thanks for coming to the Woking Branch of WSFHS last Thursday evening to give us a talk. I hope you gathered that it was appreciate greatly by all who came and opened many eyes to the possibility of information not available elsewhere. It illustrates that even in this online age there's nothing like going back to primary sources. Many thanks again." John D Beck, West Surrey Family History Society, (Woking).
