In Reply to: family genealogy forum by paul redfern of 463

I have been checking this Website and finally thought I would add my own history. I was born in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, UK in 1956 currently live in Coleshill, Warwickshire, UK.

My great great grandfather was John Redfern born 1824, died 4 June 1884 who was an innkeeper of the Coach and Horses, High Street, Burton on Trent. John Redfern married Mary Handsaker of "The Twichills", Wychnor, Burton on Trent.

My great grandfather was John's fourth son - Robert born 11 March 1867 died 31 January 1951 who was a timber merchant of Hull and Burton on Trent. He married Clara Ellen Whitehurst on 15 March 1892.

Robert had seven children by his first marriage Robert, Annie, Charles (my grandfather), Nellie, Mary (died 1901), and twins John and Edgar, and two by his second. I am not aware that any emigrated though apart from my grandfather, I only ever had contact with Annie.

I believe that somewhere in our family there exists a family tree which traces the family to Ashbourne, Derbyshire to about 1750. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Hope this may be helpful

Regards Juliet Bakker (nee Redfern)
