In Reply to: BATTERSEA HOPGOODS by Robert Hopgood of 147

Hi my name is Rose and i need help in a big way.This is how the story goes.

Ellen hopgood Ellen is origonally from Kent then moved to battersea.lived in Gosport when uncle alex used to visit.Ellen very possibly had a neice called Rose.

Ellen married Archie.not sure which one of them is the hopgood but one of them defenatly is a Hopgood.they look about 20 years old in a photoe i have it's dated 1938.
i know they lived in Battersea origonally from kent i think i'm not certain but i think that Ellen lived in Gosport just before she died.
Ellen had a couple of brothers: Harry was the youngest,Dick was the eldest although he was probably a Richard on he's birth certificate he had two children Roy and Joy.Ellen also had a sister called Kit.

The story behind this is my grandmother is called Mary smith (she was adopted out from a baby as her mother wasn't married my grans adopted name was Florence Greenhough) Before she died her narural family traced her and it turns out her natural mum is called frances Mary Smith she had a sister called Rose.I have come accross a photoe albumn and no one knew their were notes on the back of the photoes but i'm nosey and i found the notes.
Ellen and her brothers and sister are my grans cousins.
my gran was born August 16 1908 at 29 Kennard street battersea.I'm not sure if Ellen is the child of Rose or if Archie is all i know is that approxamatly 40 years ago my uncle met Ellen and her name was Ellen Hopgood.
My problem is finding out if it's Archie thats the hopgood or Ellen?I live in a place called Bangor in north wales and can't really get to london to check up on the above names or get the cencus for the above address.I don't know if i'm of any help to you or if you can be of any help to me but i live in hope.thankyou for reading my S.A anyway.Please help with any info if you can it would be much appreciated i can't get more info from relatives as the one i know are all dead.
