I am looking for any members of the above families. The family originates from the Worcestershire area. I would appreciate any information that would help me to contact any of the living relatives.

Have you done any research?

Is there a direct link between the two surnames you quote?


Christine Report 9 Feb 2013 17:01

I have done quite a bit of research on the above names. The link between the 2 families is that all the children had the same mother, who was my grandmother, Ellen Matilda Postans. but 2 different fathers; Henry Pember and William(?) Millington
I am wanting to contact any living relatives to fill in a few gaps in the family history.
I would be so appreciative and grateful for any help in researching.

Thank you and kind regards,

Christine (Lincoln)
