Filler family of Hertfordshire

One of my resolutions for this year is to try to post more frequently, and to present my family history findings  as more of a work in progress rather than a definitive piece of research.

Using the Hertfordshire parish records at I found the following potential male ancestors:

Edith’s father was probably William Filler born in Walkern in 1732.  His father, Daniel, was also born in Walkern, in 1704 and was  the son of another William.  At the moment I don’t have any further information about these people: it would be good to know what they did for a living.  No occupations are shown on the parish registers so I will have to look at other records to see what else can be found.

I'm enjoying early retirement! I have been researching my ancestry for several years and am interested in all aspects of family history especially local and social history.

    I am Richard Filler and this family are my ancestors. I have knowledge of them all and would like to pas on any information required if someone was to contact me.

    • Hi Richard
      Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply. I am really interested in anything you can tell me about the Filler family, especially my direct line. As you know from my blog, Edith Filler, who married George Palmer in 1779, is my 5 x great grandmother. I know very little about the family except for the information I’ve found online. As I live very close to Cottered and Walkern I’m keen to learn more about them, their occupations and lives so that I can build up a picture of this branch of my family.
