My Father

Albert Edward Knight b. 8 Nov 1912 Southwark

His parents William Knight and Florence Ann Bennet

I know Father had siblings I think some of them are:

Florence Annie Knight 1899 Walworth Newington
Dora Knight 1916 Southwark
Frances Knight 1918 Southwark

However my aged BIL thinks there may be more and Dad possibly had an older brother who should have been named either Thomas or William.

Any help would be appreciated on this one please Susan.

xx

Edited to add I know he had a sister known as Nell cos I met her!

Lol Rose...now why did I think to meself.......bet the problem is an Irish one.

One reason for the difference in names could be that her parents were not married but the Father was definitely known.......I have one of those.

Sue......convinced I may be......but right?.....

well yes....now I come to think of it....I probably am......cos if I remember rightly......it took some sorting to come to the conclusion

..This is one of those times when it is good to have Summer Scribe and KathrynB about......with the three of us, and anyone else joining in and sorting things....it usually gets results.

Lol Christine.......Smith in London....Jones in Wales I expect :-))


Doesn't hurt to put what you have on here.......You never know......some-one may be able to help......even me :-)
