Roughly WHEN was it that they would they have been 50/60 ?

which of their children would be your parent ?

The birth cert of your parent would have Lily's maiden name on it

WHEN did your sister visit?

Have you done any research yourself?

And what exactly are you hoping for?

Was HOBBS your grandmother's married name?

Unless you give us location and date info for your grandparents....it's impossible to help you

IF that's the right family, there are births, but not for the names given by Lorraine, and certainly not for as many.

The impression I get from the OP's request is that only one member of one of the families was in Fordingbridge.............but it's hard to be certain, and no guarantee that the surname was Hobbs, if it was one of the females.

Wow thank you for all the info ,I have been doing some research and I have found it to be my grandmothers sister Evelyn Hobbs and her husband frank Lewis and son Michael who lived in fording bridge up to at least 1972 as I have a death record for frank at that time I wanted to find where they lived but feel I may have to do that when I get there ,as far as I know they were the only family which lived there as all my utter research has taken me to kilmersdon midsomer norton from e etc although there were an awful lot of one side of the vranch family who all seemed to be in Monmouth in 1911 census if anyone can shed any light on that I would be interested it may be something to do with mining thanks again for your help x

Response.............

The 1972 death cert will have the man's last address on it

Where does the name Vranch connect with Hobbs?
