We were very interested to read the posting by Michael Duffin of September 1, 2004 regarding Scrase's of Horsham. My wife's father was Joseph Leslie Scrase and our records indicate that he was the son of Walter Leslie Scrase, b. 1891, Horsham, Sussex and that Walter Lesle was the son of Frederick George Scrase. Walter Leslie had a brother, James, who had a son, Tasman and a daughter. Walter Leslie and James (Jim) migrated to Australia about 1917. We have been told that Jim worked as a stonemason on St Paul's Cathedral in Melbourne.
This is all consistent with the posting of Michael Duffin except there is no reference to Walter Leslie amonst the brothers of George Frederick Scrase. Is Walter Leslie the same person as Ted? We would be very interested in hearing from anyone who can clarify this.
