Trying to find Coleman

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Helen Report 4 Aug 2006 14:01

Hi, anyone have anything about the Colemans of Clifton Gloucestershire? William Coleman born in circa 1806, married to Eliza. Think they had 6 children, Alfred George born 1849 is my great grandfather. Think William must have died at a relatively young age, as Eliza appears on censuses by herself after 1851. Alfred left home ar age 12 to go to London, where he settled in Battersea. Desperate to find a living Coleman cousin!
