Help add to family history by identifying woman
10:29am Wednesday 15th August 2012 in Letters
THIS lady looks like me. Who is she - do you recognise her? My great grandparents were Henrietta [Hetty] Blitchford and later known as Johns, 1871-1956, and Thomas Henry Williams, 1873-1924. They were married in 1893 at St Gluvias Church, Penryn. They had nine children, one of whom was my grandfather, Thomas Faithful Williams, 1895-1929, in Falmouth. I have spent many years tracing my grandfather's siblings and their ups and downs through life.
In particular I would like to meet the descendants or anyone that can offer information on the following people: Elizabeth Jane Williams [1875-1916], my great aunt, who married Richard Seymour Kelway and whose descendants may still live in the Falmouth area.
William Fredrick Williams [1893-1980], my grandfather's eldest brother, who was married to Carrie Pearce, at All Saints’ Church Falmouth in 1919. He worked at Falmouth Docks and lived in the Falmouth area all his life. They had two daughters, Florence and Gwen.
Arthur George Williams 1899-? my grandfather's brother who enlisted in the Devon and Cornwall Light Infantry after leaving school. His army service took him to India during the 1920s.
Robert Edgar Williams (my father's namesake), 1905-1976, married to May Holmes in 1928.
Claude Williams, 1917-1991, my grandfather's youngest brother who was married to Evelyn Pentecost in 1939. He also spent his life in the Falmouth area. Ethel May Williams, 1914-1936, my grandfather's sister who was dearly loved by her Mum Hetty during her short life. She worked in Falmouth and had a daughter, Ethel May who later married Briton Sly.
I appreciate that family history is not everyone's interest, and can be difficult. But my Uncle Tom was passionate about me finding our family. So if you can help fit together some of my missing pieces, I will be in Falmouth during August and will be happy to meet people.
