ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Amanda Report 12 Apr 2004 20:03

I am looking to contact any descendants of the Wilkes Family from Mitcham in Surrey. My Great-Grandfather was Called George Robert Wilkes he was born in 1913 in Mitcham. His father was called Reuben Wilkes he married Anne Cornish in 1879 Mitcham. Reuben's Father was Called William Ernest Wilkes he married an Ann Stevens also from Mitcham. I have looked on the 1881 and 1891 census and the Family are residing at Bath Road in Mitcham. The family owned a Fish and Chip shop in Western Road, Mitcham.
