Garrould and Barnes family Sulfolk

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Jane Report 18 Jan 2014 21:00

I recently bought to very old books from a car boot sale. Both books have a handwritten message in the front that says "John Matthew and Annie Barnes from their affectionate brother W J Garrould Nov 29th 1866."
I would love to reunite them with an ancestor of the above.
I have found that an Ann Garrould married a John M Barnes in 1866 in Sulfolk and on the 1861 census Ann is aged 19 living with her brother William J Garrould aged 20.
If anyone is a relation of this family or knows of anyone who is I would love to hear from you.

Thank you, I do subscribe and have left a couple of messages but have not had a reply as yet so thought I would try genes.
Many thanks anyway.

If you haven't already tried, there are 3 people on here with William Garrould, born Sibton, Suffolk in 1841 on their trees.

There are 6 people with Ann Garrould in their trees on here, (but only 3 with William).

Just use Search/Search All Member Trees, top right, to find them.
