Trying to find Banks

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I am trying to trace relatives of my Great Grandfather Harry Arthur Banks. He was married to Rosina Annie Wooldridge. I do not know his date of birth but probably around 1855 and probably in the London area. He had four children, George Banks, Edith May Banks, Ethel Banks & Rosina Annie Banks. I believe he died fairly young, aged around 39 and certainly by 1901 his wife had a new man (Edward Woodman) and had further children Emily, Ivy & Florence Woodman. The only other clues that I have are that he was connected to the Pub Trade and it is reputed that either he or his family were at one time Licencees/Owners of The Ship Tavern in Holborn in London. Any information would be welcome
