Hi, I've found some more information about my Wilson family since I posted this thread.  I found the family on the:

1861 census in Farnham RG9 piece 515 folio 71 page 9
and the 1871 census in Willesborough in Kent RG10 piece 817 folio 67 page 24

I am interested to know about Mabel Sophie Fanny Wilson's brothers, James and Charles.  She lived to be 102 and nobody can remember her ever speaking about her brothers ???

I've attached photos of James and Sarah, their parents.

I spoke to my Mother about Thomas Penfold, she was born in Battersea in the 1930's and said there were many families of Penfolds in that area, which could make it difficult!

Hi There- Maybe you are a long lost rellie of mine. My Great Great Granma (Dianah/Dinah Wilson married William Roser. They travelled around Kent & Sussex that I know of. I found them living on East Grinstead Common in Sussex in 1841 with their children to that stage of their marriage. Their son "John"who was with them must have died prior to August 1842 because he was not on the shipping list when they all arrived in Western Australia in 1842. I have tried and tried to get help with my family but so far nothing to speak off. If you could send me any Wilson info I would appreciate it. You may have allready found the links and if you haven't  2 heads are better than one- RomanyRoser

Wilson/Donavan

Hi I am researching descendants of Florence Fanny Wilson born 1915 possibly at Farnham ( her Mother's maiden name Ferris ).   She married at Aldershot in 1939 to Clement Sidney Donavan born in Cardiff 1909.

Last known address was Borden Barracks in 1947. If anyone knew or is related to either of these people I would love to hear from you .

Sorry, there's not.  All my Wilsons around that date were born or lived in Battersea

My family are WILSON'S from England. My Grt Grt Grandmother was Diana(h) WILSON who married William ROSER and were Free Settlers to Western Australia. Can you give me any leads to the original WILSON family so that I will have the start and maybe find out who she belongs to- Roser
