Hello, My Gt Gt Grandfather was Lewis Williams (1840 to 1882). His daughter Elizabeth Mary Williams married Edward Edwards (who was a Locomotive Fireman on the Cambrian line) and they had my Grandfather, Lewis Edwards whom I never knew as he died before I was born. I am a round the world sailor and so excited to learn that part of my family are Master Mariners! Best wishes Tracy
Hello, I was thrilled today to come across your Williams website quite by accident, whilst researching 'Standfield Place', in Sheffield. My ancestor John Watson born 1838 in Sheffield, lived there, a successful brewer. His father, again a John Watson, born 1806 at Eastrington, Yorkshire, was my great great uncle. He too was a brewer in Sheffield. I am interested in how the Watson family ties in with the Williams family and look forward to finding out.
Hello, I am the daughter of Edward Thomas Jenner. We just lost him a few days ago, and I was online looking for some info as I write his eulogy. I noticed that my married surname is spelled incorrectly in your records. Also, I am now divorced. Should that be shown in something like this? My father passed away in Calgary, AB Canada on May 12, 2020, one day before his 83rd birthday. Thank you for compiling all of this info. I am not sure how or if we are related as I do not know any Williams family.
Hello, I am thrilled to find such a well laid out tree. My G.G.Grandfather was Christian Falk (1842) a mariner from Christiansund in Norway. He became a British naturalised citizen and married Elizabeth Biggs in 1868. I have been stumped as to his ancestry and have been literally going round in circles for years trying to find more about his past. I and more certain about his time since the marriage but not before this. Any help would be truly appreciated. Thank you.
Hi I am the granddaughter of Samuel David Evans born 8 Dec 1893 in Aberdyfi. Taid was a tailor and later moved to Birmingham where my father and his bother also lived. The third child of Samuel , Audrey lived in Aberdyfi all her life I believe . All three of Grandad's children are deceased. I recall quite a few of my extended family (the Evans's) from family holidays in the village where some great aunties and uncles still lived and have been back a few times over the last years. I recognised my Nain( actually my great Nain, Mary) from this website as I too have a picture of her and remember her quite clearly.
This has been absolute find for me. Moved sideways on family tree and started to investigate Zachariah Chilvers , my 8th Gt Grandfather.My grandmothers maiden name was Napthine and through that side of the family back to Philpotts and then Chilvers. Amazing. Thank you.
Hi All, I am researching the Duroe family of Chesterfield for my wife. Her mother was Mary Duroe b 1916 daughter of William Frederick Duroe & Mary, nee Stevenson. I see you have already received a message from David Duroe from Cradley Heath regarding Walter Henry Duroe who was William Frederick's brother. Very interesting website, I'm glad I've found it. Kind regards, David
Hi,Allan Knudsen from Australia. I am a distant relative of Andrew Knudsen an Andrew Lonzo Knudsen and their Knudsen descendants. We are regularly in touch. What is your claim to relationship? You may need to revisit your relationship to keep the records correct.Thanks, Allan.
It would appear that a marriage entry for person reference I97300 (Samuel T Proffitt) is incorrect. That is because this young man was killed in WW1 aged 19. Please see below SAMUEL PROFFITT Son of Mr. and Mrs. Silas Proffitt, of 28, Gozzard St., Bilston, Staffs. RANK: PRIVATE REGIMENT: SOUTH STAFFORDSHIRE REGIMENT AGE: 19 DATE OF DEATH: 7-11-1914 BURIED AT: YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL Samuel Proffitt was brother to my grandmother (Rebecca Proffitt)
Hello, I came across your website whilst starting research on the Duroe family from Chesterfield. Walter Henry C (Harry) and Florence Shawcroft were my grandparents, my father Walter being their second child. I would be interested to know the link with your family and am also able to provide information in relation to my father and his brother and sister and their families. I hope this is of interest to you.
I came across this website by chance and found relatives by the name of Proffitt from my grandparents back. I just wondered if and how there is a connection please? Silas Proffitt was my grandmothers father and she later married a Jones who, somewhere in his line, is Welsh. It would be very interesting to hear from you with regards to connection please. Many thanks
Hi, I came across your website by chance while researching my branch of the Hay family which goes back to Charles Hay and Helen Fraser. I have some dates I could add to that part of the family if you are like. I am particularly interested in finding the link between Andrew's younger brother Alexander and George Hay who married Jane Roy. Hoping this is helpful. Diolch, Isobel.
I have a question about the entry on Lieutenant George Brooks Forster, R. N - https://williamsfamilytree.co.uk/tree/getperson.php?personID=I32531&tree=wft. He is my 4th great grandfather. in the notes section there is reference to BROOKS, Captain Richard (1765? - 1833). Can you explain the connection / relevance to Lieutenant George Brooks Forster. much appreciated Andrew Parkes
Re: Charles Henry Stebbing 1870-1956. Mabel Ellen Huggett born 1885, baptised 28 June 1885 All Saints', Benhilton, Surrey, first child (of 3) of William George Huggett and his wife Mary Anne Turrell Watts (marr. 31/05/1884 St Anne's, Poole's Park, Islington). Mabel Ellen was the second wife of Charles Henry Stebbing, dying in 1917/1918 - reg. March quarter of 1918 in the Elham RD (containing Hythe). Charles married in 1921 for a third time Edith E. Godden, by whom he had 2 daughters and a son John. Charles' will proved 1956 has executors, son John and also Francis George Stebbing, both company directors. Was FG Stebbing then Mabel's son? the only Francis George Stebbing I can find b.30/03/1917 - d.25/02/1993, but I cannot find his birth reg. on either freebmd or the government website, both of which at this date would give mother's maiden name. FYI Mabel's sister Elizabeth Alice Huggett married 20/07/1921 in Hythe RD Leonard Archibald Maycock; she died 23/03/1974. My grandfather was their first cousin.
I am researching my Pinnegar ancestors [Samuel Pinnegar] and found my family on your website. I am wondering how are you connected?
Hi, I am looking for ancestral info for a John Williams who was married to a Beulah Hudson. Although I have details on her line, I don't have anything on the Williams' Line. Beulah's Mother was Aletta Verdoorn, and Father was John William Hudson. Hohn William's Father was Edmond Hudson, born 1819 in Sedgeford, Norfolk, England, died 1898. His wife was Phoebe Woods (1825-1895), also from Norfolk. Any help with more details on John Williams' line would be greatly appreciated. Although it seems John Williams was Born in SA, I'm hoping there is some historical record in the UK to bridge the gap.
Hello. Quite by chance I typed in Maciver family tree into Google, and your page came. I noticed that my grandfather Duncan’s sister, Isabella Maciver was listed. Whilst searching my family tree, I wondered what happened to some of the family, as I couldn’t locate them. I found on these pages, that Isabell married in Lowestoft, and then moved on to Canada. My grandad met my grandma in Hull, and died of cancer in 1948 when I was just 1 year old. Thank you for enlightening me on part of my family history. George Maciver
