Hi Sorcha,

Merry Christmas.

I have one Nobel in my tree, don't know if this will help. But she was a Gypsy/Hawker from the Yorkshire area.

Jessie Nobel: b: abt 1840.
She married:
Alexander McKenzie: Coal Merchant dates unknown I'm afraid.
(Details from Daughters marriage Cert'.)

They had a daughter Jeannie  McKenzie b: 1874 in Leith, Edinburgh. Occ Hawker

She was the second wife of Matthew Hartley: b: abt 1845 in York. Occ: Hawker of Baskets
They married on the 15/04/1895 in Aberdeen.

I've not researched this side yet, so do not have that much info....might have a go though  :)

Hi, I know this is an extremely old thread, but I thought I would post on here rather than start a new one, due to the relevance of some of the comments!

I am trying to trace my paternal grandmother and her family, but have got stuck!

She was Kathleen Goodwin b1909 dorset d1967 Plymouth
Married Edward Thomas O'Riley 1928 Plymouth
Had a brother Albert Goodwin b1905 who married an Irene Burr
I also believe her father was called Albert Goodwin, but I can find no trace of him nor her mother!

Can anybody please help?

Many thanks in advance, Squizzles!!  ;D

Marona; Thirty five years ago, I was sat in one of the Welsh Price's trailers, chatting and examining old photo's of their family wagons on the road.

I'm pretty sure that was Peter. It was central south coast and they were stopping in company with the Welsh Lee's et al.

One of the Price's also had a gorgeously flash trailer, on that site at that time. Blue and chrome! A lovely photo exists of it, today, on the 'Gypsy Trailers' site.

Sadly, all so long ago, lord knows what further assistance I could now be. Feel free to shout though  :)

CURTIS (Portsmouth & 1800's Berkshire).
BURGE (Dorset, Somerset and Hampshire)
