Hello Peter,

Do you know anything at all about Lottie's time spent in Cyprus.  For example during late 1940's and early 1950's when she was co-running the Astoria Hotel in Nicosia.  Would any photographs still exist.  I am searching for information on behalf of a friend of mine ... although he is not related to her, his father was a friend of Lottie & Alex.  It would be wonderful if any photographs of that time exist? Best wishes.

Kent / SIMMONS: Woolwich & Plumstead.

I'm hoping that some kind soul(s) might be able to help me with the following brothers:

Ernest Albert SIMMONS born Jan-March 1894 Woolwich
Herbert Charles SIMMONS born April-June 1895 Woolwich.

I have found them on the census returns, (including the 1911):
Ernest Albert Simmons is age 17 - Barber's Assistant.  Born Woolwich.
Herbert Charles Simmons is age 15 - Govt. Bookeeper, Ryl Arsenal. Born Woolwich.

I have been trying to find out if either of them ever married and had children.  I may be doing something wrong, but I'm unable to find any leads.

Would greatly appreciate any help/advice.  Many thanks.

Many thanks for this.  No mention of Croydon, though (but I'll look again) - slowly going cross-eyed!

Thanks Stan,
Thank you for the link ... I did try clicking on the link ... no luck with that either.  Seriously considering pitching my laptop out of the window!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Appreciate you taking time to reply.

Many thanks,

Hello Folks,

I've been driven totally mad in my search of the 1861 census on ancestry.  I'm looking for the following family:

Stephen SIMMONS born 1829 Croydon
Ellen SIMMONS born c. 1834 Essex
Thomas SIMMONS born 1859 South Norwood.

I literally cannot find them anywhere  ??? Would really appreciate any help/advice.

Very many thanks,

Hi Dawn M,

Many thanks indeed for your posts ... very much appreciated  :)

Up until now I've only really dealt with British surnames, and so this really is 'all Greek to me' (easier to learn how to knit fog!).

I do appreciate your help - thanks so much!

Kind regards LAS1015
