Trying to find Rigley

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Trying to locate my father's family. He was Frank Rigley b.1909 Nottingham, mother Matilda Rigley b. 1876 Selston Notts. Matilda's parents were Robert Phillip Rigley b.1849 Heanor Derby and Alice Sarah Rigley (nee Clarke) b. 1848 Leicester. They had a number of children - Frank, William, Sarah, Samuel, Phillip, Alice, and Mary (and of course, Matilda). Anyone looking at similar family connections would be most welcome to contact me. I would be particularly interested in what happened to Matilda after she gave birth and where my father was brought up and by whom. Apparently Matilda married a JOSHUA SKIDMORE in Nottingham in 1911, no other details available. Unfortunately most family members who would know are now deceased, but there may be some family history somewhere.
