hello again,
looking through some notes and found that sometimes she was listed as testaner/testaina. probably spelling mistakes. anyway their children were, as far as i know .... chlar (f) owen (m) hezekiah (m) matilda (f), ages 15,15,13,1 yrs, possible that eldest 2 were twins? they were at wanstead flats in 1881 census.
along side them are also bartholomew & family and cornelius & family, i believe these are woodstocks brothers
happy hunting
amanda :)

Hello,
 Thanks for that. It is nice to know that I have distant relatives on that side of the family. If you go into the site Romanygenes under the smith/lee heading you will see a photo of justina along with woodlock and his brothers/families

I have the following children for Woodlock:
Saleh Smith 1856
Chloe Smith 1866
Owen Smith 1866
Hezekiah Smith 1868
Mathilda Smith 1880

Only census records I could find were the 1871 and 1881 and Woodlock's death registration in 1882.  My husband comes down through Lavinia Smith (sister of Gypsy) so I haven't fleshed out all the other lines.  I have never found any census records for James and ELizabeth Smith - Woodlock's parents despite hours and hours of searching.  Has anyone had any luck with any of the family in the early censuses?

hi kathy
do you know if woodstock had a sister named alice smith? as i have seen a tree on ancestry and they have a james smith and his wife elizabeth as her parents and elizabeths maiden name was o'dell. does this ring any bells? the tree was ''bowman''

Yup that is my tree and I think we have corresponded once or twice?  Alice is I believe a sister of Woodlock and she married a Josiah Smith whose parents I now believe are Joiner Buckley.

hello there,
we meet again. nice to chat to you again. seems you have been busy with the bowman tree, it gets bigger every day, you must be exhausted, lol.
is that a definate with alice? it seems to make sense but i have made the mistake of ''assuming'' to often with these travelling people.
i am still working on exactly who is the father of josiah buckley, but it does eventually tally up with joiner or his brother, just have to wait a bit to confrim or deny!!! have had help from an outstanding lady called ''sharon'' who has been a great source of info and is still searching as we chat.
has my tree been of any use to you? i hope so.
