Morris (Parry) family
« on: Saturday 15 September 12 10:25 BST (UK) »
Hoping to find descendants of Colin Parry (or even Colin himself)
who was born in Ledbury Herefordshire UK probably in 1920's, son of George Morris and ??? Parry. Believed to have lived in Blackwater, Australia. I would be a cousin of Colin's, but have only just heard about him. Any info or contact appreciated.
Kath (nee Morris)

RootsChat is meant for finding ancestors, rather than living relatives. 

Personal details of any people known or thought to be living will be removed, in accordance with RootsChat policy, to avoid spamming and other abuses. So people here will be able to give you general tips and hints how to proceed, but not any concrete details.

Hi Kath,

I'm not sure if same relative but my Grandfather was Colin Roger Parry born to Gladys Ivy Parry in 1937. Her address on his birth certificate was Ledbury Herefordshire but no father registered. He moved to Australia in 1958 and lived in Blacktown.

Colin Roger PARRY, b 1937, Ledbury, died in 1988 in NSW so it's ok to post about him on Rootschat.

Hi

I think I have found his death Notice in the Sydney Morning Herald 19.10.1988.

As it contains details of his children who may be living, I will not  include it in this post. If you would like a copy send me a PM with your email address

Thanks Cass. I have all that info. Have everything from the time he arrived in Australia in 1958. I have his last address which was on the ship arrival info into Aust. He married my grandmother and my father is his eldest child. We just don't know who his father is or his mother's family. I think he may have been sent to Banados as a child but wasn't adopted and left when he was a teenager??

Hi Reeparry,
I am assuming that you are familiar with the 1939 register in Ledbury for Gladys I. PARRY (domestic servant) and her sister Lily M PARRY (factory hand). On the register are three children, two of whom are redacted (probably one is your Colin Roger PARRY).

Gladys Ivy Parry was the illegitimate daughter of Eliza Ann BROWN. When she married Henry PARRY, Eliza Ann’s children took on the Parry surname. I don’t believe Henry Parry was the biological father to Gladys Ivy or to her brother Ivor Leonard.
Here is information about her mother and family.

Eliza Anne “Annie” BROWN - Timeline
10 Jun 1877  Eliza Ann BROWN baptised Awre, Gloucestershire (born 15 May)
Parents Thomas BROWN (labourer) and Mary HUGHES – married 14 Jul 1872 Awre, Gloucestershire
Birth rego:
BROWN, ELIZA  ANN               Mother maiden name - HUGHES 
GRO Reference: 1877  J Quarter in WESTBURY ON SEVERN  Volume 06A  Page 265

1881 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q27X-PDV3

1891 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:WBTC-6N2

1901 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X96M-1BG

1902 Daughter Gladys Ivy born East London

1908 Son Ivor Leonard born East London

1911  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X715-JVX

July 1912 Elizabeth Brown, with children  Gladys Ivy and Ivor Leonard are in the Pontypridd workhouse.

1913 Daughter Lily Maud born Whitby

Dec 1914 Henry Thomas PARRY attests for military service with Welsh Regiment Army service Corps (Corporal 23224). He names his next of kin as Annie PARRY mother of his children (but not married) and he names his three children Gladys Ivy, Ivor Leonard and Lily Maud, & records all as illegitimate. Home address Weston square, Barry, Sth Wales. He is unfit for military service and is discharged the following year.

24 Oct 1915 Gloucester  Marriage to Henry Thomas PARRY
-   Both aged 35, both residing at  22 Tower Westgate, St Nicholas
-   Her father Thomas BROWN – railwayman
       (Henry Thomas PARRY worked as a stoker / fireman on the railway)

March 1917 in Ledbury, Henry Thomas PARRY is convicted for breaking and entering. He has a long list of very regular and similar convictions going back to 1899. Military Authorities undertaking to take charge.

BIRTH REGISTRATIONS for the three illegitimate children

BROWN, GLADYS  IVY    - 
GRO Reference: 1902  D Quarter in HACKNEY  Volume 01B  Page 504
(DOB agrees with census, but is 1 year out in 1939 reg and father’s army record)

BROWN, IVOR  LEONARD    - 
GRO Reference: 1908  J Quarter in WEST HAM  Volume 04A  Page 375
Ivor Leonard PARRY was in the Royal Navy from 1923, and was invalided out in 1947, and died in 1987.

PARRY, LILY  MAUD                  Mother maiden name: STRONG 
GRO Reference: 1913  S Quarter in WHITBY  Volume 09D  Page 910
(Mother’s name is STONG.? Maybe mother is not Eliza Ann but someone else. Or the name Strong is just made-up. Note that Eliza Ann did have a sister called Lily Maud)
Lily Maud PARRY married twice - in 1941 to Ronald TABB and in 1964 to Joseph CALLAGHAN. She died in 1993.
