I really think I should post Lemmey alias Leamantinia, Lemintina, Leman on here.

You would think with a name like that she would be easy to trace wouldn't you  ::)  My great grandma.  The family are now all really quite proud of her ........ shame her existance was hidden until now  :'(

Can't think how I missed this thread before  ;D

I always liked Lavinia and Mercy, two of my romany grandmothers sisters names, although not particularly "Romany", Ill admit.
Ambrose is one of our family names as well, which I love.

My Romany gggggggrandmother was Mary, and she named her first daughter Charlotte (my ggggggrandmother), but Charlotte named her daughters Bartha (not Bertha) and Thirza Merhalia.

It was very handy when I came across two Thirza Merhalia Loveridges in the same branch of my tree. Knowing that it was highly unlikely that there were two of them, especially not in 1830's Tasmania, I was able to work out that Thirza married her daughter's husband's uncle!!
