Thank you for much for your information.

I am now trying to find out about Rev Norman Garstin's son, aka Rev Norman Garstin. He was married twice, firstly in 1847 to a Marianne Wilson in Bath, England. They had to my knowledge, 5 children. After Marianne's death sometime before 1864, he married a Mary Lockley and on his marriage changed his name to 'de Garston' which his descendants still use. Rev Norman and Mary had two children, Edith Nora de Garston (1867-1877) and Edward Mervyn de Garston who was born in Normandy, France in 1869 and died in 1939 in Rappallo, Italy. Edward was a career diplomat who worked in Sicily, Italy, South America, before retiring to Italy. Edward was a founder member and President of Palermo Football Club, Sicily.

Thank you again
