Mitcheldean/ross
« on: Wednesday 01 March 17 21:56 GMT (UK) »
I know this is a long shot, but I don't have much info on my dads side of the family.

I remember as a kid my dad talking about Mitcheldean and Ross and his family being there.

I  don't have a lot of info and can't get anywhere with the census, so wondered if anyone had a clue....

No dates...Henry rogers (g.grandad) married lilian?
Had gwendoline mabel, Ernest, Donald, Jim, Grace and others

Gwendoline  married major clarke??
Moved to mendips along the way??

Any ideas, search tips would be great. Tia

Hi

We can but try! When and where was your Dad born please? Do you have his Birth Certificate as that will give us the names of his parents? From that we can look for the marriage of his parents, and hopefully back we go!

Regards
Giggsy

It is always best to start from what you know.

Do you know who your Rogers grandparents were, if not what information does your parents marriage certificate give on your fathers father and who were the witnesses

Mitcheldean is in the Forest Of Dean, Gloucestershire.

Ross is Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire.

I've been looking on the FOD site but not getting much joy!

There are a few Rogers in Mitcheldean, and 79 records for Rogers in Ross, but no Henry that I can see.

Wow. Thank you for all your help. My dad has passed so I will have to dig around the paperwork and see what I can find...
My dad was Colin Granville clarke born 15.2.1943
His parents were major clarke and gwendoline mabel rogers (known as mabel)
And I always believed mabel parents were lilian and Henry rogers, but I could be wrong. As they didn't talk much about their family and now my dad is gone it's going to be hard.
I remember dad talking about Mitcheldean and Ross (on wye) and going to primary school there.
I will go and see what paperwork I can find and ask my mum if she remembers anything about them..
Thank you all so much.

Hi brilliant that is my dads dad and mum  side and hopefully can go back more on that. Thank you

Though may help me go back as rogers was gwendoline maiden name.

Yes he's actual name was major!

Thank you for all the help- I am new to this.
