Coverley's Portugal / England
« on: Tuesday 19 July 16 14:25 BST (UK) »
Hello! I am a new member so I am sorry if I do not follow the “procedures” correctly although I read them and I hope not to break any term!! 

I am from Portugal and there used to be some Coverley’s in my city. I know that the last of them went to England in the late 1940s.

Also, I think, at least, one of them established in Surrey (at least during the 1950s).

I would be more than happy if anyone as any clue or can help me with my quest

Cheers,

Jorge

I forgot to mention but I am Portuguese and I have no British ascendency. I just want to find some information for an article (scientific one) I am trying to do.

Cheers,

Jorge

Also, I know, after reading a topic, that there is someone in this Forum (nickname: “scienceplan”) who is a relative of the family I am searching for but I fear it is no longer present here since her last message is from 2011...:(

As it is an ongoing investigation for a scientific work I would deeply appreciate if we could speak by private messages, otherwise, as in all fields of knowledge, the information we post and that can be seen by anyone not registered will led that others will use it without any effort for that (“plagiarism”).

Off course, to start with we can talk by the general forum. I simply just not want to give any “free” information to other researchers. It seems odd but it is very difficult to research and as I know a little bit my area and the people that, unfortunately, exist I simply do not want to do research for others!!

I hope all of who read and have some kind of information or clue to help, understand what I am saying.

I have no problem to go to England if there is any real chance of obtaining some information about the family (actually it is not about the whole family but of a specific member that lived in my city and left a fantastic work on natural history!).

I am looking forward for hearing from you all (I hope with some good news!).

Cheers,

Jorge

Hi Jorge

I have no idea if you are still interested (or even still on the forum!) but I am a descendant of Charles Coverley and have been living in Portugal for a few years now. Let me know if I can help.
