EDMONDS family of Swindon
« on: Saturday 11 February 12 00:28 GMT (UK) »
My paternal grandmother was an Edmonds and I wanted to find out information on my British family roots. Her father was William Edmonds, Agricultural Engineer.  My father was Albert Hugh Edmonds Lloyd.  I was born and live in the USA.  Can anyone help me?

Hello and welcome to RootsChat

Hope we can help you.

It is RootsChat policy to not post details of the living (spam etc) so we have to be a little careful.

Could you give the name of the person you are looking for ??? Do you know where/what county they were born in??

I have found a Winifred Edmonds who married William A lloyd - but her father was Edwin H? Edmonds occ Engineer agricultural machines????

Any further info you can give would help

Hey Suz,
Winifred and William were mygrandparents. I guess I made a mistake with my great grandfather's name.  Can you tell me anything else. My dad Albert was born in 1917. What was my great grandmother's name?

Thank You
Gloria

To follow William A Lloyd's line back you really need the marriage cert for he and Winnie.
When ordering use the spelling given on FreeBMD for Winifred or just use William's name :)
Winnifred Edmonds, William A Lloyd June 1/4 1915 Cricklade vol 5a page 131 (check details on FreeBMD)

You can order online here http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp

There is a family in the 1901 census living in Swindon Wiltshire
RG13/1907/28/6
19 Cheltenham Street Swindon
Albert E Lloyd 54 Railway engineer {fitter(?)} born Birmingham Warwickshire
Susannah wife 53 born Wales NK (doesn't know which town or county)
Susie dau 29
Albert E 24 engine fitter
Florence M 19
Ethel J 17
William A 9

All children born Swindon. So Susannah the mother may be the Welsh link. But to be sure you don't chase the wrong family you need that marriage cert for William A and Winifred :)
