Another useful place to go is


It is a FREE forum site like the community boards on here. And there is a whole Board dedicated to the Travelling communites.

Well worth a try and even more so as it is free!!!!!

Hi Rita did you find what you was looking for with regards to the Gypsy Records,if not I may be of help
I have a database of over 30 years work on collecting informtion on Romany Gypsys


Rita Report 14 Feb 2014 18:57

hi no i didnt find much im told that leonard george carter married rosemary in hampshire possiable married about 1900 ish after marriage they lived in a house in hamilton road portchester hants they had a son christopher george who married pamela dunkley hope this helps but its not much rita

Sorry, Rita -
Can't see them in 1901 or 1911, nor Leonard & Rosemary's marriage, nor any likely birth for Christopher in that area.
Hamilton Road is now industrial estate / warehouses, but I expect it was bombed during the war.

If you have Christopher & Pamela's marriage cert, it will tell you his age, which might give you more of an idea of when his parents might have married (if they did - maybe they just lived together.)

Linked thread (but all information is on this one):


Reggie Report 10 Mar 2014 13:53

Don't assume that what you're 'told' is always accurate

Much better to look for info yourself...............

What is your connection?

Where do the names fit in your tree?


Marriages Dec 1951 (>99%)

CARTER Christopher DUNKLEY Gosport 6b 563
DUNKLEY Pamela M CARTER Gosport 6b 563

NO second forename for the male...................get a copy of the cert for AGE info

Pamela was almost certainly not born until I think your reference to 1900 is possibly misleading

What is the source of your 'info'?

When was LEONARD born?


Rita Report 10 Mar 2014 15:10

hi the marriage is correct Christopher was my son in laws father Pamela says christophers father was leonard but I have found Christopher George instead not all are called by the right name this leonard had 12 siblings with names like elijh ambrose freddy violet mayedward ect


Rita Report 10 Mar 2014 15:32

Pamela was born 19 /4 /1931


jax Report 10 Mar 2014 15:47

If she was born in Hampshire then it would be 1932 not 1931


Reggie Report 10 Mar 2014 16:09

Easy solution.................get a copy of the marriage cert. for father's name (if known)

The names of the witnesses may also prove helpful

Surely Pamela knows when her husband was born.......even if she isn't sure where
