Hello Alison

Firstly let me introduce myself. My name is Phillip Dixie and I have been researching my family tree for the last 4 years. I am using Ancestry to create my tree.

File Name: Dixie Family Tree 4th November 1879-present. This tree is not made public yet.

I've started my tree from Edward Dixey my Great, Great Granddad & Sarah Anne Dixie (formerly Eastwood) married on the 4th November 1879. The marriage was solemnized at The Parish Church in the Parish of Croydon.

Their children were:

Edward Dixie (1871-1945) my Great Granddad, he is buried in the London Road Cemetary Plot 20 grave no 7343 along with his daughter Lydia who married a William Huxley. I tend to their grave. Edward died on the 17th January 1945 aged 73 and Lydia died on the 17th January 1985 aged 83, the really strange one on this is Edward's son and Lydia's brother Leonard was born on the 17 January 1898 unfortunately he was killed in action on the 30th September 1918 at Noyelles, Nord, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France. I have all his military records and war medal plus pictures of his gravestone.

Phillip Dixie (1873-1942) is buried along with Maude Ella Dixie (formerly Eastwood) (1876-1963) at St Mary & St Nicholas's Church Cemetary, Leatherhead, Surrey, England. Grave No: 31736. I have three of their children who were Patience born 16th January 1899 - Edward born 5th May 1901 - Philip born 5th March 1905, still researching for more children.

Lydia Dixie (1874-1955) who married Edward James White. Edward died on the 9th September 1944 aged 75 - Lydia died on the 25th March 1955 aged 80 and their son Edward James died on the 16th September 2013 aged 100.

Clothilde 1876
Councellettie 1876 I know that Councellettie went on the marry a Job(Jacob) Hearn. Was Councellettie also known as Clothilde or have I just picked up a rogue child in my record search?

Patience Dixie (1878- no more info on this lady. Still researching. Help if you can.

Britannia Dixie 1880-1963) who married Henry Smith. They had three children a Sarah Smith born 1904 - Caroline Smith born 1906 and Patience Smith born 1911. Not much is known about this family. Still researching.

Ada Dixie (1884-1888).

Leonard Dixie (1886-1943) who married Britannia Deacons (1883-1985 - 103 what a great age). Their children consisted of a Philip Dixie (1905-1966) who married Ellen Mary Chapman on the 30th June 1924 they had 4 children. Lydia Dixie (1907-2000) who married a Frank Bush (1899-1985) they had a son Philip Bush (1934-1997). Hannah Dixie (1910-1983) who married Frederick Sparrowhawk (1909-1951). Henry Dixie (1911-1952) who married Margaret Emma O'Doherty (1914-1999). They had a son Leonard C Dixie (1939-2001). Sadly Henry was killed on Christmas Day.

James Nelson Dixie (1888- no more info can be found at the moment. Still researching.

The last two.

Sarah & Hannah. I have birth records for both of these children. They were born on the 1st June 1890 to Edward & Sarah Dixie of 17 Sibthorpe Road, Mitcham which is the same address that Sarah & her children were on the 1891 Census. Edward died in November 1889 so I think that Sarah must have conceived just prior to his death.

Sarah only lived for 2 years and Hannah lived for 13 years.

Well, after all that what I would love to know is do you know of anybody who might have pictures of these people so that I can possibly obtain them for my tree instead of gravestones and indexes.

Going to close now, hope to hear from you soon.
