Pembery/Pembrey Family Cardiff
« on: Tuesday 05 June 12 22:00 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace the family tree on my maternal grandmother's side. their surname was Pembery but there is some controversy over the spelling. M grandmother was Grace Veronica and became a Gray by marriage. Her father was Robert Pembery and her mother was Harriet Maud Williams. I am trying to trace what happened to my grandmother's siblings and where the family name can be traced back to.

Thank you for your help. Its much appreciated. I will seek to follow this up. I had an idea that the family came from London but no concrete evidence.

Hi - yes looking further back the family seem to be in Lambeth in 1871. You have three generations of Robert Edwins

1898 b cardiff, father of grace
1893 b Lambeth, married Harriet
1848 b Lambeth, married Elizabeth

1848 Robert has father Richard, a waiter, mother Jane, both born Westminster. This Robert is also a decorater, although some of his brothers are in boat building.There is another Pembery two doors down who is also a decorator.
