Many years ago I worked with a woman named Iris.  Her many sisters all had flower names - Lily, Rose, Violet etc.

Jane :-)

Just needed a Hyacinth to make up the full Bouquet (or Bucket?)  ;D

At school I was one of three Martins in a class of 31 boys, and we each had a father who was a bank manager.

Just think, you could have been called Midland, or National Provincial...  ;D
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

You could have changed your name from Martin to Barclay.

Brilliant names YES

but still not easy to search.... little blighters done a runner...

the eldest brother named as ARTZY which is later Harthur / Arthur I found..
then the second one David Ward Kibaz... --- nothing...

Elsie Blair Athol still looking.. later today..

so I think the names were changed
