Can anyone find details of a Mary Jane Ball (approx 1869) mother of Charles Hough (1895-1988) Frank Hough (1889-1937) Horace Hough (e.1892)Walter Hought(1893-1982) Ernest Hough (e. 1894).

I believe she married a Charles Hough.... and believe her to be linked to William Ball the Shropshire Giant.

Dear Rachael,

I am researching a Frank Hough in connection with his motor trade work. He was in business with a Herbert Henly. Sadly Frank Hough died in January 1935 aged just 46. He is buried in Teddington Cemetery.

Is this the same Frank Hough as yours?

All the best
Sarah Minney

Hello Sarah,

You have replied to an old thead from last year and it may be that Rachael isn't checking for replies.

You can try clicking on her name and sending your message that way. If she still has the same email address she will be notified.

However, you can try putting the person's name you are researching into the Search Trees box above, to see if anyone else on this site has him in their tree. If you find a connection, you can contact the tree owner. Cx.
