Macready family, St Helier, Jersey
« on: Thursday 17 August 17 14:35 BST (UK) »
Would any descendants of the Macready family of St Helier, Jersey, please get in touch? Fanny Macready, born St Helier 1862, and her husband Herbert Drew, had a son Arthur Malcolm Drew, born in New Southgate, Middlesex, England, in 1888.

Arthur Malcolm Drew was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross in 1917, having earlier changed his name to Allastair McReady-Diarmid. Relatives are being sought to attend a centenary commemoration in New Southgate later this year.

Hi Caluna

You'll probably get more response from island residents by posting your request in the Facebook "Jersey Family Tree" group.

A relative in England (a cousin once removed) has now been contacted.
