Thanks for your input Newfy.    I have searched back a bit but it's always helpful to have another indpendent set of eyes having a quick glance too to make sure you're on the right track.

Warwickshire / Names Interest - BARNES
« on: Monday 09 April 07 12:44 BST (UK)  »
Am interested to hear from anyone regarding the Barnes family.  My great grandfather was William Wallace Barnes born in Birmingham in 1890.  He married Sarah Gittins in Stourbridge in 1912.  William committed suicide in approx 1958.  His father and grandfather all lived in the Birmingham area but my information on them is limited.

Looking forward to hearing from any rellies soon!.

I am a direct descendant of Matthew Lock(e) and Membranci Boswell and would love to hear from anyone who has a Lock(e) or 2 in their tree.

I have been provided with 42 pages of info on the Lock(e)s however it is a very slow process going through and trying to confirm each entry against the records I have access to.

Somerset / Names Interest - MANCHIPS of Bridgwater
« on: Monday 09 April 07 12:16 BST (UK)  »
Would like to hear from anyone who has a connection to the Manchips of Bridgwater.    My gg grandfather was John Manchip born in 1850 in Bridgwater and married Maria Arthur Jones (born in Glamorgan in 1849) in Bristol in 1874.  Maria had an illegitimate daughter, Agnes who went by the name of Manchip after the marriage however details of her father are not known.

Worcestershire / Surname interest - MORRIS
« on: Monday 09 April 07 12:12 BST (UK)  »
I am interested to hear from anyone who has info on the Morris family who resided in Dog Lane, Bewdley in the late 1800s/early 1900s.  My great, great Grandfather was Sidney/Sydney Morris who married Matilda Lock(e) and who had 6 children that I know of..

Would also appreciate if anyone could give me info on Mary Evans who married George Morris (son of Sidney and Matilda) as I can find no reference to their marriage.  George was born in 1899.  They had several children but the only one I can confirm is William, my grandfather, who was born in 1925.  He had 2 older siblings who died young so am assuming that George and Mary married in the early 1920s.   My grandfather says his Granny Evans lived up Sion Hill or at the Horsefair and he actually went to live with her for a period of time to look after her, however this is all the info I have and would love to find out more if possible.   The Evans were supposedly Welsh but I don't know how far back that went.
