Trying to find Wilson

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Jeanne Report 9 Dec 2002 21:41

My father, Henry Arthur Wilson, lived at 117 Boundry Road, Walthamstow, East London until it was bombed during WW2. He was in the RAF and was stationed in Holland, Germany and other near areas. He married my mother Lillian Wilson (nee Knott) early in 1942. My sister Brenda was born in 1943 and my brother Robert 'Bobby' was born in 1945. My father had 1 older sister, (Maud Emma) who also lived in Walthamstow just off Queens Road with her husband Edward 'Will' Bush and 1 brother, (Owen). Owen died when he was about 21 years old, I think it was a motor bike accident, but I'm not sure. I would like to trace any relations of my fathers Aunt's & Uncles, His mother's name was Maud (nee Barrow)(d 1962 aged 79) and his father's name was George Owen (d 1931 aged 58). Please contact me if you know anything of this family as my knowledge of it prior to my father is very sketchy.
