Can't find children
« on: Friday 29 June 18 09:08 BST (UK) »
I wonder if anyone can help - or offer suggestions.
There is a family reunion taking place shortly in Long Marston and am trying to find possible great grand children of Herbert Samuel Mead.
Herbert had two daughters one of whom, Gwendoline, married Norman Dymock in 1947. Gwendoline died in 2005.
Gwendoline had a daughter, Janet, born in 1950 thought to have died in 2011.
Janet married Gerald K Jones in Aylesbury in 1976.
I understand that no details of living people can be published but perhaps a PM if anyone can find any trace of these children.
I'd be extremely grateful as I've exhausted all avenues that I can think of.

There are 4 Jones children with mother Dymock on FreeBMD after 1976 but none in Buckinghamshire.

Many, many thanks...I was too specific.

Hello Simon
I can't answer your question but I saw your family name so I thought I'd say hello. My family came from Watford in the 16th and 17th centuries. Before that I don't know - there were a lot of them in Bucks and around Tring, Pitstone, Ivingho. So, not too far away.

Hi Vance,
Who knows? There were many mobs of Meads around Bucks, Herts and Beds; been there a long, long time. I don't know how far you've got with your investigations but we could well be connected somewhere in the past. Feel free to PM me if you want any specific details.

Thanks all - particularly R (you know who you are) - from your help I've been able to locate those I was looking for.

Never ceases to amaze me how knowledgeable and helpful you all are.
