have you seen this on Thornbury Roots?

Emily Winifred Champion.  Emily was born on 28th April 1884 at her parents' home, Owl's Nest Farm in Alveston.  She was the daughter of William James Champion and his wife Elizabeth (nee Saniger).  In 1901 she was a servant for Elizabeth Williams in Weston Super Mare.

Do you know the name of his father, who married Elizabeth. She was living with her daughter Ann in 1851 and is blind.
I am doing the tree for a daughter of Mary Grace Champion born Brighton 1928. She married a Arthur Oldfield and had 6 children. You are gt. cousins. Any info will help.

Hi,
His father was James Champion, born circa 1780 in Berkley Gloucestershire

Hope this helps. My full tree is on Genes Reunited if that helps

Best wishes

That site is really interesting, I had a look earlier, and found some family photos. Thank you

I too have heard of Owls Nest Farm.  My granny was Ella Wyndham Champion (19.4-1991).  I think my mum has a photo of Owls Nest Farm.
