Hi Alan
Thomas Frederick Belcher 1885-1953 was my uncle's father in law. He was born in Harwell, Berks, married in 1909 to Lucie Clarovine Davies 1879-1959. He was residing in Newquay, Wales in 1911. He had 2 daughters, Valerie 1909 and Joan ?1912. He was in the navy and was stationed in Malta for a time. Valerie was educated by nuns there and learned to speak Maltese. She and Lucie also spoke Welsh as well as English. I am trying to trace Joan's children to find out if they know anything about our mutual cousin Brian Gillam, son of Valerie. I live in Canada and haven't heard from him for 2 years so am wondering if he died. I am on Ancestry.

On the 1911 census Lewis should be Lucie and Valarie should be spelled Valerie

That is the correct spelling on FamilySearch link I provided.

Hi Sue,

May I also welcome you to Rootschat.

Thomas Frederick Belcher was my grandfather's brother (one of 9 children) and was bapt. in Harwell 3-8-1884. I do know he married Lucie Clarovine Davies in 1909 Wales and they had two daughters Valerie & Joan Elfrieda.
I have Lucie & the 2 dtrs coming back from Malta in 1929 - no sign of Frederick - and I suspect they had separated sometime between 1929 & 1939. No sign of him in the 1939 register.
I have details of the dtrs marriages but no info on any children they may have had.

What name do you go by on Anc..y as I'm on there as well.

Young-Jones family tree. Owner Susan M Jones. E-mail: Removed I have a few more bits of the puzzle. Don't know why your tree hasn't come up with hints on my tree except I've only been delving into Joan for a couple of days. Will explain via regular email.

Hi Sue,

Have sent an email to you. (I think your address should be removed as its a policy of R/Chat to never reveal addresses to prevent scams etc) The moderators may do this very soon.

I have found your tree on Anc..y but for some reason it won't open - I'll keep trying.
