I have an hereditary walking disability (hereditary spastic paraplesia) which has been quite strong in our family. Whilst I was born with it did not show until I was in my 30's. My son has it, my brother had it, my father had it, as did some of his aunts and uncles in the Fletcher family (Birmingham but originated from the Jackfield, Broseley area of Shropshire. I am trying to trace back to see of any other instances, whether it was always Fletcher or whether it came from other families married into. My great grandfather, Enoch Fletcher married Harriet Hinley, did it come via the Hinleys etc.
Has anyone any experiences of this?
