Jim, On your page - is mentioned:
"Following Sarah's death, he married again to widow Hannah Naylor (nee Jukes)"

I have Jukes & Naylor too - Here's what I have:

3 EDWIN / EDWARD CULWICK - (brother of my great-grandmother) - born abt 1845 BROMSGROVE Worcestershire - 1851 census at REDNAL shows as 6 years old
+ PHOEBE NAYLOR of Sedgley m 16 May 1864


- EDWARD, x, 22, bach, carter of West Brom, father VICARAGE, carter
and PHOEBE, (x), 23, spinster, father JOB NAYLOR, miner.
Witnesses SAMUEL CULLWICK (signed) and PHEBE ANN JUKES, (x).

EDWARD was a coal miner in Laney Green, Staffs. He died there on 6th November 1873 from bronchitis and pneumonia Đ informant EMILY PACE (sister) of Laney Green, present at death (she signed).

EMILY PACE (nee CULWICK) was my great grandmother

PHOEBE NAYLOR was bt at Sedgley on 11 Apr 1841, parents JOB and MARY NAYLOR. She appears to have been named after an older sister PHOEBE b 1831 died age 3

PHOEBE married, secondly, JOHN FASEY on 9 August 1880 at Sedgley (VTR).

I believe this FASEY/PHASEY may have come to Canada as I worked with
one at Oshawa. It was said that there were only about four
Phasey/fasey folks in Canada..

Emily Pace nee Culwick was my great grandmother

3 SAMUEL CULWICK 1843-1901
- born abt 1846 KINGS NORTON, Worcestershire.
1851 census at Rednal - shows as 5 years old Occ: Moulder
Marriage was 29 Jan 1866 at West Brom All Saints Samuel, (signed), 22,
bach, brass caster of West Brom, father Vicarage, labourer and

James LONGMORE and Harriet CULLWICK (sister of bridegroom).

On another of my pages,
I have JUKES again in HICKEN THACKER FARLEY ancestry of Norton Canes area.

This is in connection to my 2X great grandmother HANNAH HICKEN
who married JOSHUA PACE 1808-1895 - marriage September 30, 1833 at Walsall.

Maybe warrents a closer look.
Gord Pace in Ontario

Hello Gord,

It looks as if we have a probable link with the Naylors and a more remote possibility with the Jukes.

Hannah Jukes' first marriage was to Isaac Naylor 11 Sep 1818 in Dudley, but they lived in Sedgley (or possibly Gornal, which was a part of Sedgley). They had three children, the first of whom was Job, baptised 1820. He could well be the father of your Phoebe.

Hannah was the daughter of Isaac Jukes and Mary (nee Tinsley), who had a son Thomas born 1798 - could he be the one on your list who died in the 1870s?

Most of my Naylor information came from another researcher (Lynn Naylor), but I have not (after 6 years!) yet put all of it into my database. Perhaps I should look out the original email I received and pass it on to you?



Mr Pace,
Found your webpage whilst researching my own family tree
- this page in particular - click here

I noticed that under the children of
you have "no info" next to THOMAS PACE (b 1875)

Well, he was my great grandfather
who married a ROSE LLOYD in Walsall, 1907.

They had several children including my grandfather, and the Pace family is still going strong and expanding in Walsall.

My granddad
used to tell us stories
that he had cousin in Ohio.
Now I think he was wrong and meant Ontario!
Perhaps that's of interest?

Hello Gord, Just by chance I stumbled on your information on facebook. Over the years I'd looked for more Pace history but not in a serious manner. My grandfather Thomas and Rose my gran were lovely. They lived at 9 Green Lane Leamore all their married life and bought four children up there in a two up two down terraced house with an outside washhouse, coalhouse and toilet. The house is still there. They had Thomas, Edward, Elsie and Reginald Charles. The three boys slept in the front bedroom and my grandparents and my mom Elsie shared the back bedroom. Because Reginald was still at home my mom slept in that room with her parents until she married aged 31. None of them were in a rush to marry Gord. My uncle TOM married quite late to Violet and had a son Ronald and a daughter Audrey who is more like my mom than me!. EDWARD (Ted) married Connie, he was near 30 years of age, they had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls (one son now deceased with no issue) My mom ELSIE married at 31 and only had me although she married a widower with 2 children so I have a half brother and sister. REGINALD never married . All four are now dead, my mom being the last to die in 2000. As I child I spent a fair bit of time with my grandparents and remember two brothers of my grandad Edward and William. I understood Edward was local and Billy lived at Chadsmoor which is Cannock. One of them looked very much like my grandad. My grandad died when I was around 5 and my grandmother died just before I was 8. I was there when she passed away. Both were cremated at Perry Barr and I attended both funerals. I am surprised that you were born in Birmingham. My mother wrote to her Aunt Mary Ann for years and then to her daughter Emily (Mitchell?) who had a daughter Betty Jane. I was born in December 1949 and have moved to Grimsby in Lincolnshire to live by the sea. I was born in Bloxwich maternity home, as was my son, and grew up in Walsall. Well enough for now Gord. I have a few photograps of my side of the Paces I will get them out. Hope to speak soon

Best Regards, Carol

Just come across your website. Fantastic!!
I am Andy Pace and Live in Staffordshire England.
My Parents are D.... and C.... Pace.
My Paternal Grandparents Fred and Dorothy Pace were from Wednesbury, close to Walsall, England.
I am related to Derek 'Doc' Pace, he is mentioned on your web site. My Great, Great Grandparents, Alice and John Pace moved out to McKeesport Pennsylvania in 1904, before returning to England some years later!!

Alice and John Pace - Were married in McKeesport Pennsylvania in 1904,
before returning to England some years later (before 1916).
John Henry Pace 4/8/1880 - 11/1/1945 - My Great Grandfather
Alice Pace (Nee Wilkes) 11/10/1881 - 1975 - My Great Grandmother

Feel free to get in touch if I can help with any family ties

Andy Pace

Note Andy Pace's great grandparents went to McKeesport, Pennsylvania - same place where some PACE POPE PEARSON WILKES people went also, about 100 years ago and andy's great grandmother's maiden name was WILKES - so this WILKES name seems to form a connectiom with this other McKeesport, Pennsylvania family, This is interesting and why we do research work on our ancestors.
Click on this - - and see notes about the other family that went out to McKeesport, Pennsylvania and also had a WILKES connection. Gord Pace-webmaster


Coughton Court Re: Feckenham Pace family
Hi Gord,
Have just found your wonderful site and wish to place on record my admiration! !


I am related to the Feckenham, Worcesterhire branch of this family .My great x5 grandfather was JOHN PACE. His son SAMUEL, born 1770, married MARY WOODWARD, born 1776 also from Feckenham. They wed on 7th january 1799 at Coughton, Warwickshire and I am descended from their daughter ANN. After seeing your hard work, it makes my 2 years research of my family seem pretty feeble! I can only dream of recording my tree as you have. An inspiration to us all! ~ SS ~

    THOMAS PACE - brother of
    my 2X great grandparents of Laney Green

    THOMAS PACE's descendants - Yvonne Pace-Buckinghamshire who posted in 1998 on ROY JOHNSON's PACE NETWORK, learning of Roy's bulletin board site about the PACE family in America while she was studying at a Michigan college.

    Yvonne Pace who wrote me back in 1998
    is also from this leg of the PACE Family
    I wonder if she is still around
    Here are her words

    25/09/1998-I've just started researching my family tree here in ENGLAND. I've only been at it about a month, but have got back to 1835 and ENOCH PACE's marriage to HANNAH WOOTTON in ETTINGSHALE, near WOLVERHAMPTON, Staffordshire (now West Midlands). His father was a THOMAS PACE but I have little information on him yet, except that I believe he was born in LANEY GREEN, Staffs. ENOCH & HANNAH's children all became locksmiths, keysmiths until my father broke the tradition.

    THOMAS PACE from the 1881 census was living with his son RICHARD (aged 41) and his wife ELIZA and their children MARY J (aged 7) and STEPHEN (aged 13)

    THOMAS also had my great great grandad ENOCH born circa 1833.

    These are the names in my tree:

    Y PACE, Buckinghamshire

    Surnames that may be connected in the PACE lineage:

    • THOMAS EVAN PACE was my grandfather,
    • the others would be my mother's uncles and aunts
    • and it was partly because I knew very little about them that I became interested in genealogy.
    • This family lived in BILSTON, West Midlands.
    Ivan Alfred Pace, born 1932, has died. He was the last surviving child (of 8) of THOMAS EVAN PACE and MAUD BEATRICE GUMBLEY (below) None of the 4 boys had any children so the Pace line in Bilston has ended. All 4 of the girls did have children but obviously had changed surname.

    I posted this coincidental happening - meeting a PACE of MALTA - on the PACE mailing list
    and received an interesting reply

    --- Gord Pace wrote:
    Last month I visited my daughter who is working in New Brunswick, Canada, actually on the Bay of Fundy where the tides can get as high as 52 feet or more. This is a wonder of the world, the Bay of Fundy tides. I took some video of fishing boats at high tide, then came back at low tide, about 6 hours later, and took some more video of the same boats. You'd have to see this to believe the difference. Anyway, what went on during the 6 hours, may be of interest to PACE folk.

    George & Mary Pace

    A local NB Maritimer suggested - go down the coast a mile or two - see the lighthouse, the rocks, surging current and view of Nova Scotia, about 25 miles across the bay - Clarinda and I drove along, found the rural lane and hiked around the light house for a while. On the way back, up the lane, a man and woman walking along, waved us to stop and talk, probably seeing Ontario licence plate on the car.

    The people had lived in Toronto, Ont. prior to New Brunswick. The woman had an English Accent. She was from Staffordshire. I said I had a web page for my ancestors from Staffordshire, Shropshire.

    The man said he was from Malta. I said "I also have a web page for people of my surname, from Malta.

    My name is GORD PACE.
    The man seemed a bit surprised for a second or two,
    then said, I'm GEORGE PACE"

    Well, we spent a good part of the six hours, with them, waiting for the spectacular tide to change, discussing the PACE story, etc. George and Mary Pace have a computor and had already seen the Pace web sites.

    George and Mary Pace have another house they rent out during the summer, Nearby, at St. Martins, where the boats are, were two of New Brunswick's picturesque covered bridges. You can get both bridges and the boats, and the incredible tidal difference, if you wait the 6 hours, on the same photo.

    Anyway, I thought you'd like this story.
    You never know where a PACE will show up.

    Reply to my post on PACE mailing list

    Great story about meeting Geo. Pace!
    They say it's a small world, and it's either that or there sure are a whole lot of amazing coincidences.

    On my 1st evening in Wales I had dinner in a Pub, was asked by a person at the next table what I was doing in Wales. I told him I was researching my family, he asked me to name some names, and the result was he knew a cousin (that I never knew about) and hussled out and had her at the Pub in 20 minutes! We had a wonderful visit, and shared pictures and letters.

    My JOHN of MIDDLESEX line goes through
    (dau of Robert Groom)
    so I'm also interested in the Grooms.

    And my Grandfather was EDWARD BENNETT PACE, and I've never figured out how he got that middle name!
    _____ in Seattle:
    PS: and I hadn't yet figured out there were two (2) Gordon Paces. No wonder I was so confused!

    The following received from a Polish person who posted on the PACE Bulletin Board who mentions descendency from a PACE Engineer who had emigrated from England to Poland for the start-up of a steam engine manufactured in England and purchased by a Polish Industrial operation about 1830.

    I followed up with some research
    and found he was referring to a brother of my 3X great grandfather

    I'm looking any information, on JOHN PACE from BIRMINGHAM, born abt 1789 in England, died April 1831 in Bialogon Poland. He married Ann Tetley (Fitley), her dougther Mathilde Pace as Christening in July 1817 Wedensbury.

    Here is the Christening record:

    Jacek, this is interesting,

    They were sons of JOSEPH PACE - b 1 Feb 1735
    at LITTLE SAREDON, Staffordshire (Shareshill parish).....my 4X gg/f.

    In JOSEPH's 2nd marriage, to MARY PITT
    his PACE family went to BILSTON, adjacent to WEDNESBURY where your JOHN PACE was born 1794. JOHN's parents, JOHN & CATHERINE also had Christenings at BILSTON. This JOHN PACE who married a Catherine (Elizabeth) looks to be brother of my 3X great grandfather WILLIAM PACE.

    It's making sence.
    This JOHN must have followed his father JOSEPH PACE b 1735 to the BILSTON/WEDNESBURY area - south/east of Wolverhampton and carried on life there. Not a great distance anyway, about 5 miles south of SHARESHILL - click on BILSTON-WEDNESBURY area, above. to see where this is.

    Previously, I knew nothing of JOHN PACE, brother of my 3X gg/f WILLIAM PACE b 1765 until I read your posting.


    If you look at this page, it'll help. I'll have a look for the marriage of JOHN PACE b 1761 SHARESHILL to CATHERINE. Maybe Catherine's surname was HARGROVE. probably where the JOHN HARGROVE PACE b 1794, got his middle name from.

Another researching descendent of the 2nd marriage lives in PITTSBURG,PA.USA and has sent me his detailed PACE ancestry which agrees with that of another cousin from WALSALL.
      + (possibly) Catherine (Elizabeth) HARGROVE
    • THOMAS PACE - Chr 29 Jan 1764 SHARESHILL - bur 22 Jun 1764
    • WILLIAM PACE - Chr 14 Jul 1765 - my 3X great grandfather
      buried William PACE - of Laney Green 21 May 1811

      + MARY BROWN - m 1 Nov 1785 bur 15 Nov 1800 - Laney Green
      dau of THOMAS BROWN & MARY REEVES of HAUGHTON - stepmother Jane JANE SLIN
    Women often alternated between their primary & secondary Christened names, in this case I'd say Catherine & Elizabeth are the same mother. I believe this is part of my PACE ancestry going back to JOSEPH PACE Chr 1735 Shareshill whose 1st wife MARY EVANS died 1770; John's 2nd wife was MARY PITT 10 Jun 1771 I descend from the 1st marriage. The PITT surname is also popular in the SHARESHILL parish.

    I'd be interested to learn about
    JOHN PACE's time in Poland. Maybe HARGROVE has a story to this also.

    RICHARD PEACE/PACE in Cheshire
    I`m trying to find the birth of a RICHARD PEACE or PACE in Cheshire about 1800 to 1803. So far I have the following,

    RICHARD PEACE married JANE LEE in Hanmer, Flintshire on 31st December 1822. He was of "Wrenbury in County of Cheshire" They had a son RICHARD baptised in Hanmer on 9th March 1823. I have found Them in the 1841 census in Dodington Whitchurch Shropshire.

    RICHARD PACE age 38
    JANE " " 42
    there are 4 children with them and their son RICHARD is working as a male servant a short distance away. The name has also changed from PEACE to PACE

    1851 Census- They are still in the same village.
    RICHARD PACE age 50 born in WRENBURY
    JANE " " 54 " in HALGHTON, Flintshire

    The son RICHARD is 25 and working as a labourer for a nearby farmer. (This younger RICHARD is my Gt Grandfather, and finally, after 15 years of searching, I have found what happened to him and his wife.

    He married a MARGARET ROBERTS in Manchester in 1853 and my mother`s mother, JANE, was born in 1855 in Manchester. Until now, I was only able to track JANE. In 1861 she was living with her aunt in THREAPWOOD, Cheshire and working in MALPAS, Cheshire in 1871. There was no sign of RICHARD and MARGARET. I found a RICHARD on his own in Manchester in 1861 but couldn`t prove he was `mine`

    I have now found that his wife MARGARET died in 1860 back in Threapwood. It was `my` RICHARD in Manchester in 1861, he then moved to Monks Coppenhall near CREWE, Cheshire and in 1871 married a MARY GREEN who was over 20 years younger than him. They had a family of 5 children which has never been known to our family. If only my mum was still alive to tell her.
    I am now trying to find more about my GT GT Grandfather, hence my appeal to you in case you can help with his birth as stated in the beginning of this email.
    Thanks for anything you can help with

    I have only recently started to research the ARCH family tree, and I was pleased to find the Arch's of Exall web site.
    I offer the following information regarding George Henry Arch and his wife Ruth Penrice.(not Penrick) my grand parents.

    George Henry Arch
    Born 1867 in Bloxwich Died 23/07/1924 buried at Rycroft Cemetary Walsall Married Ruth Penrice 03/08/1896 in the Salem Chapel Wakefield (Yorkshire) in the presence of Joseph Hargraves, Walter F. Blanchard, Abigale Penrice and Annie Arch. (my grandmother-GTPace)

    Vol. 9c Page 98
    His Father William Arch & Mother Maria Mason born in Durham.

    Ruth Penrice
    Born 18/04/1873Halesowen Stourbridge Worcester.
    Died 19/03/1967 buried in Rycroft cemetary Walsall.
    Father Samuel Penrice, Mother Anne Gill.
    2nd Husband James Amos Married 17/04.1928
    They had two children.
    Further family info considered private.

    On page 4 of the web site the 1881 Census for William Arch is listed, and one of the four chilren is named Thomas aged 4. On 1881 census I have, there is a son William aged 7, it does not mention a Thomas. Do you know if they had five children. My mother said that she had cousins in Canada and we have found a photograph of three young ladies which may be them. She also said that our family was related to the Barford Arch, Joseph Arch founder of the National Agricultural Workers Union. Do You know if there is a connection and where it might be?
    I trust the information above is of some use,

    I have, for some years, being looking for George PACE - father William brassdresser; George was 27 when he married on 3 March.1862 in St Georges church Birmingham .He married Rebecca Lucas SMITH her father John Smith a tailor . In 1871 they lived in Hospital Street, Birmingham with their children Jane ,Alfred, George ,Thomas.

    I can not find them on the 1881 census. In 1891 George is with his daugther Annie in New Summer Street. She married Willam Sambrook on 22,11.1896 in Bishop Ryders church Birmingham.

    I wonder as any one got any information as to George Pace's parents. He says he was born in Birmingham on the census. Any information would be grateful.

    email - Vicki Pryce
    Birmingham England

    Hi Vicki,

    I don't think I have a George on my pages that would fit. I've tried the 1851 census and the 1881, which is all I have, also some Warwickshire Paces, Tanworth in Arden, Warwick, Kenilworth, Barford.

    George would be born about 1835.
    Considering just the two addresses, and the church
    George Pace obviously didn't move very far,
    - between his marriage in 1862
    - 1871 lived on Hospital Street
    - 1891 lived on New Summer Street

    Looking at the A/Z map, from 1871 to 1891
    George moved around the corner, and New Summer Street runs into St. George Street, across Hospital Street.

    Even though he doesn't show on the 1881 census, for whatever reason, I think it's safe to say George was probably in the area, the whole time.

    I looked at the National Index for 1881 but that's no use if he didn't show on the census.
    Next, I looked for a suitable THOMAS in 1881 census. one looks suitable, West Bromwich is close and this THOMAS is living in a HILL family, indicating some sort of family split.

    I don't think the following is the right one but never know.

    I'm familiar with this Pace family:
    .The LIZZIE (Elizabeth) PACE nee HILL was actually married to a WILLIAM PACE.

    I am a descendant of REUBEN DUDLEY who wed EMILY PACE nee CULLWICK in mid 1870's. I have reached deadlock trying to find any details about Reuben's first wife ELIZABETH RAYBOLD. I believe your great grandfather was CHARLES V.PACE, one of the 6 children brought up in the Dudley household together with my Grandmother ANN MARIA DUDLEY and her brothers and sister.. This is a long shot I know, but if any of your family have any information however slight, about Elizabeth, I would be very pleased to hear from them. Fantastic web site by the way!

    Hello there,
    Could you please create a space for the Pace family of South Africa on the Pace Society website and include this information for other South African's trying to connect the dots? I have searched the Pace family forums etc for years without luck and chanced upon this publication that solved the entire family riddle.

    I am descended from Jurie Justice Pace and my father is George Pace. My grandfather was tried for treason in 1922 for his role in the Rand Revolt (or Rand Rebellion) but the case was ultimately withdrawn. Had he been hanged, my father and our branch of the family would not exist.

    On the off chance that anyone knows where our first ancestor Robert Pace of Cape Town originated (beyond London) in 1784, I would love to know!

    LORRAINE PACE sent me a pdf file:

    Something looks vaguely similar in Lorraine's pdf information and Noeline's

    When I compare LORRAINE's information to NOELINE's above
    (of the Netherlands, who said she has a brother in South Africa)

    The compared info varies slightly
    in dates, but are close, and the names LINDE and LINDEN may be a speculative variance of the name being researched

    Could these two people be researching the same PACE family of South Africa?

    Lorraine Pace mentions:

    I have a limited knowledge of my family background and am interested in finding out more.


    • He died when I was in my early teens.
    • He had a half-Brother, Graham
    • and a full brother and sister, Cyril and Barbara.
    • Barbara married (moved to Sutton Colfield) and is now known as DAVIES.

    I have lost touch with them all many years ago. It would be nice to make contact with direct and indirect family members. I have two brothers and sisters. Graham and Barbara are twins, Andrew and Caroline. They all live in and around Gosport and Portsmouth.

    I was born on 2 July 56, I married Carole on 6 September 1980 and had our Daughter 12 May 1986 and our son Elliot on 29 March 1988. We lived in Luxembourg from the end of 1988 until late 1998 and early 1999 (I moved back later due to work commitments). The kids are multi-lingual (English, French (elliot is not so hot at this), German and Luxembourgish). We now live in Brighton on the south coast.

    I am looking for my ancestors in England.
    My grandfather was WILLIAM CHARLES PACE, born in Norfolk England in 1895. I know that somewhere along the line some ancestor emigrated to New York. American's seem to be far more interested in geneology than the Brits so I am hoping that when I make that connection someone will be able to give me details of that side of my family. I am currently collecting anything about any PACE's from England.

    • there was a FRANCES PACE

    • I remember going to see her way back in the early 1960s, possibly my mothers cousin or aunt.
    • There was also a transport cafe/ garage named PACE near ALSAGER, Cheshire
      that appeared to be linked, in some way, with the family.
    • My mother often used to talk about an area named Talke Pits.
    • I know of other distantly related Pace's
      around the CONGLETON area of Cheshire too.
    • I have also been told that my maternal great grandmother married twice, due to bereavement and took the name SHERRAT after PACE.

    I was most interested to read what you said about the Shropshire Paces - it makes interesting reading - thank you!

    Subject: PACE Clockmakers of London
    Date: Sun, 09 Apr 2000
    From: geoff white

    There were quite a few PACE clockmakers in LONDON.
    The dates given are those which have been estimated by a study of known clocks.

    • Thomas - London, 1630 - 1662 member of the Clockmaker's Company
      - a trade guild which means that he could employ apprentices and other workmen
      - more accurate records for this Thomas will doubtless exist still with the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers

    • John - London. apprenticed 1720
    • Thomas - London (Whitechapel) 1784 - 1825
    • Henry - London (Whitechapel), early 1800s
    • Henry - London, 1832 - 1863 (this Henry may well be the previous one.
      The first is more a guesstimate)
    • Charles - London, 1839 - 1851, successor to Henry
    • Thomas - London 1828
    • Edmund - London, 1839 - 1844

      Some non-London Paces which may be interesting:

    • John - Bury St. Edmunds, 1825 - 1855
    • H. - Loughton, Essex, 1855
    • Hugh - Newry, 1865 - 1892
    • Thomas - Chelmsford, c. 1800

      Then it seems that some moved out:

    • Henry - Ottawa, 1875
    • Henry - Brampton, Canada, 1862
    • C, San Francisco, c. 1850

    Hope this lot helps!

    Hello Mallory,
    I read your entry on the PICKENS cousins list.
    Your grandfather, Walter Pickens came from East Liverpool, OHIO

    By any chance was he one of the ENGLISH folk that came from the pottery district of the English Midlands, Staffordshire?

    East Liverpool was also a pottery area in Ohio
    and I know Staffordshire folk went there as well as Trenton, New Jersey.

    My 6X great grandmother was an ELIZABETH PICKENS
    who married GEORGE PACE at Ranton, Staffordshire 1708.

    Just looking for some descendents. Any comments appreciated.

    My maternal grandmother was ADAH PACE. Her family came from SUNDERLAND, Co Durham, UK. Some emigrated to NEW JERSEY in late 19th Century. I am tracing the family and have got back to about 1810 in Sunderland. Have details if they are of interest.

    E-mail me, DAVE ELLIOTT if you are interested.

    NOTE - In a previous letter
    of Northumberland Pace researcher, Gil Raymond, in NZ, mentions:

    ...."a lady researching ROBERT PACE...(not another one!)...who married ELEANOR LYDIA SPRAGGON born 14 Feb 1814, Jarrow, Co. Durham) at SUNDERLAND on 8 August 1831.

    I am afraid that is all the information that I have about this particular ROBERT. He does not appear to match any of my lot in NORTHUMBERLAND."

    If any of your correspondents are researching this couple
    I would be happy to pass on the address of this lady.

    Robert Pace and Eleanor Lydia Spraggon are my direct ancestors

    I am trying to trace the family of my great aunt, NELLY BICKNELL. She was born in Clerkenwell, London in the 1890s. Her dad was JACK BICKNELL. She had two sisters, and one brother, JOHN BICKNELL, (my grand dad). Her mother was CAROLINE ELIZABETH MORRIS. She married a Canadian serviceman during or after the first world war and moved to Canada. We think Ontario, around this time.

    Her son Bobby served in the UK during the second world war when he contacted the family, but we have no way of knowing where her family now live. NELLY BICKNELL was her maiden name, and we have lost her married name, so her son BOBBY would have his dads name.

    My mother, (NELLY) named after her, would dearly love to contact her Canadian cousins. if any one can help us, please contact me we would be very grateful.
