Carvers of Melbury Abbas in Dorset
« on: Tuesday 17 October 17 23:41 BST (UK) »
I am searching for living descendants of the 9 children of the Rev Henry Carver and Blanche Carver (nee Liptrap), Vicar of Melbury Abbas in Dorset until 1915, father of Lionel Carver (Irish Guards) who was killed in France on 26th May 1918.

I am Henry Carver's great grandson.

Thank you.

Timothy King, Shropshire.

Hi

WELCOME to Rootschat!

Rootschat house rules are specific that we cannot publish the names of living people.


What you can do is publish the details of those who have passed and see what messages
[ via the Personal Message (pm) system ] you get as responses.

For you to send pm's, you need to make 2x more posts on your thread.

So, 1x of those could be to confirm the 9x off-spring details.

I can see that HJC married Blanche in 1876 Chertsey.
Ethel 1877
Grace 1879
Blanche 1881
Mary 1882
Lionel 1883
Jessie 1884
Agnes 1887
Bernard 1889
Helen 1891

Hello,

I am one of Henry Carver's living descendants. My great-uncle was Lionel Carver, and I have had the pleasure of visiting Melbury Abbas with my father, Daniel Carver, when I was nine.

My grandfather, John Carver, was the son of Bernard. My grandfather immigrated with my grandmother Daphne Eunice (nee Ash) to Canada after their work as medical missionaries in India and in the UK. Sadly, my grandfather passed away before I could meet him, but my father and his siblings have maintained connections with Henry's descendants. Lionel Carver's photo is in our dining room and I am remembering him and my family's service in the World Wars especially today.

If you are interested in getting into contact with my family, please reply to this post and we can set up some form of communication.

Best,

Julia Carver
