Title: Boats, buildings, parks & roads
Post by: Zelley on Monday 20 June 05 11:10 BST (UK)
 ;D Are there or were there any boats, buildings, roads or parks
that have your surname or named after a relative.

I'll start with three:
"Godbold Close" - Beverley, Yorkshire
Vessel "T W Zelley" - British Columbia, Canada
"Timms Centre For the Arts" - University of Alberta, Edmonton,
Canada.

The names of the three:
Harold Raymond Godbold, Henry William Zelley & Albert William
Timms
