I'm looking to re unite the above family members.

I'm looking for members of the Shelton family also Hall family and also trying to locate the Tarling family who were last known living in Norfolk?
If anyone has any info please give me a shout?

Phil, might be more effective to look for people with these names in their tree - you can find 'search all trees' in search box above.


Penny Report 7 Mar 2013 17:24

Any particular Tarling or specific ones?
Ditto shelton
Last knownto be ....means?....When? 10 years ago or 100?
Norfolk uk i assume , its not huge county but its reasonable size, so 'where' in Norfolk.

I advised Phil on his other thread to contact the other GR member who has his (Phil's) father in his GR tree.

The advice was not apparently seen

The other person with my dad in his tree is my brother Adrian he started a tree before me but gave up

As Penny said,
10 years or 100 years?
Please could you be more specific?
(bt online gives 9 Tarling families living in Norfolk.)


Unknown Report 8 Mar 2013 11:03

They were living in Norfolk around 1987 with there dad Pat And mum Shirley but she died a couple years later Julie Tarling was due to get married Suzanne was in her teens I'm sure they lived around the Stalham area?


brummiejan Report 8 Mar 2013 11:33

I can't see a marriage for Julie though there is one for Suzanne.
However, if you check there is a Julie M. Tarling showing for Norfolk (this middle initial is correct, having looked for her birth and parents' marriage).. To see further details you have to buy credits.

How much research have you done yourself?

Have you looked in the phone book?

And please post only one thread per per site guidelines


Unknown Report 8 Mar 2013 13:46

Sorry Reggie I'm new around here
I posted in error trying to work the site
I've only really got the bit between my teeth last couple of months doing family tree on here bought loads of credits used most of them learning as I go may have made a mistake with my tree yet to confirm when I can get back on pc with mo relatives to help with the gaps this is why would like to trace I will check and other sites later


Penny Report 9 Mar 2013 07:29

Phil. You need to start with what you know.

Be clear and give as much info as you can, and be as specific as you can. Tell us what you know and how you are related to these particular Tarling's-

Without sounding pernickerty, can you read back what you post and make sure it makes sense


Unknown Report 9 Mar 2013 19:45


I was really not expecting much of a reply to my post I was unaware that people jumped on to help so quick that's why I half hartedly put up a post
Second this is the first time I have used this site so still learning how it works
As for not making sense im sorry my post was gar-bald I posted from my iphone which is hard to do when you cant really see the full page and get spacing right



Unknown Report 9 Mar 2013 20:24

Dear all

It seems I have under estimated how this post thing works and have been jumped on for not putting enough details for people to search.
Well let me be the first to apologize to all who have tried to help I was not sure that anyone would even read it.
I have been asked to put in detail what I am trying to find so here goes with what I know

My surname is Shelton
I am researching my family name and the relatives that came before me.
My farther was called Reginald William Shelton He was the youngest son and was born in 1933 In Leytonestone registered in Essex

His farther was called Frank (B1899c) married to May (Maiden name Hewitt)
He had various brothers and sisters
Gladys (Married William Higgins)
Jean married a man called Derek Morton
Ivy who had a twin brother Charlie( Ivy married a man called Steward and moved to Leeds Charlie moved to Chigwell at some point and married a lady called Hilda)
William (never married)
Merci (Married a man called Bert)
Herbert ( Married a lady called Joan who is still alive but very ill)
Ronnie(Married Daphne)
I think there was another brother but not sure
My grandfather And Grandmother on my dads side died when he was young Gran dad Frank came from Sheffield and was the son of a Black smith(we think)
They lived through the war in Essex Leyton Leytonestone area
I am looking for both sides of the family for my grandparents

Glady had a daughter called Shirley Tarling who married An Irish man called Patrick (Pat) Tarling and had two daughters Julie Tarling and Suzzane Tarling
Shirley Married An Irish man called Patrick (Pat) Tarling and had two daughters Julie Tarling and Suzzane Tarling
After uncle Will died they moved to Possibly Stallham in Norfolk Where they lived till Shirley died in the 90s
The reason I want to contact the two daughters is we were real close when I was a child and I would like to trace them again, I have tried Facebook and Twitter but cant find there accounts and I don't know if they married.

My Mothers name is Violet Shelton (Maiden name Hall)
Her mother was also called May she had been married before to a man called William Waters
Her maiden name was Meads
She had a son to her first marriage called Noel Her first husband died
She then re married to Walter Hall In Wakefield
My mother and farther both married in Wakefied and lived there till he died in the eighty's
I have a few details on my tree but I have gone off the rails from my Grand parents Back on my dads side as all his brothers have died so only have a few details which are correct

Please contact me to look at my tree for further details
I hope this has made things easier.

People have posted details on here already which i am finding a little confusing to follow so please have a look at what is already posted.
I am checking over again all posts and thanks for all your input.
