Boats, buildings, parks & roads
« on: Monday 20 June 05 11:10 BST (UK) »
 ;D Are there or were there any boats, buildings, roads or parks
that have your surname or named after a relative.

I'll start with three:
"Godbold Close" - Beverley, Yorkshire
Vessel "T W Zelley" - British Columbia, Canada
"Timms Centre For the Arts" - University of Alberta, Edmonton,
Canada.

The names of the three:
Harold Raymond Godbold, Henry William Zelley & Albert William
Timms
Zelley,  Lovell, Godbold, Woods, Phillips, Lewis, Emery,
Magee, Baker, White. Flisher, Kyne, Tilston, Valence/Vallens,
Mabb/Mabbe, Bellamy, Selley, Martha Smith, Arno (of Dartmouth, Devon}.
Dorset, London, Warwick, East Anglia, Kent,  Devon
North Wales          

The ancestors lived here and there, in many scattered
places, with various occupations
