Ambrose (Manchester) and Barker family (Darlington)
« on: Sunday 29 March 20 05:53 BST (UK) »
Hello

Its been a long time since I visited here and made my one and only post some time ago. Anyway, now I have a little more time to research my families history, (which I'm terrible at by the way). So thought I'd get back into it and fingers crossed somebody on here may be able to help, or even better still actually be related?

Anyway, I am hitting a brick wall with my older surviving family members, not many seem to remember much.

My Grandmothers side was from the Barker family in Darlington England, and my Grandads side were I believe from Manchester England. My Grandmothers father was called Robert, he or his father had a chocolate shop and also stables where they broke in horses and apparently trained them for Buffalo Bill, - at least that's what I've been told anyway. Not sure if its all true or not. Grandma was born in 1923. I am unsure of her mothers maiden name.

As for the Ambrose side, my Grandad had a couple of brothers, who joined the Irish guards where as he joined the RAF. His name was William and was born in 1920 I believe. His mothers maiden name is Slane and was from Sligo in Ireland (I think). I'm not sure if my Grandad was from there or was from Manchester.

I have also joined Ancestry to have a look too, but there is a lot of people with similar names so I'm a little stuck with going any further.

I am wondering if on the off chance, anybody here might be related, or perhaps be able to point me in the right direction?

Any help much appreciated, and in the mean time I'm going to keep having a nosey around the Forum.

Thanks

Ant

If William was born 1922, then there is a problem with the William born 1905, for whom I canít see a death.
