I am looking for any relatives of my paternal grandparents (John Bibby Thompson and Nellie Leddington). My grandparents lived in Gloucestershire during the last years of their lives. The family moved to different parts of the country and lost touch. It would be nice to catch up with my cousins.

Born when? Born where?

Have you done any research?

Have you used GR's 'search all trees'?

It is possible that there are four GR members other than yourself with John in their GR trees.

thank you all, for your help. My father is Alfred Thompson born in 1932. I know he had at least 2 sisters, Barbara and Freda, and some brothers, Bert, Fred and John. There may have been others.
There was a story going round the family at one time that a relative of John Bibbey Thompson was either Mayor or Lord Mayor of Liverpool but I haven't been able to find any information about this. I believe the Bibbey family were in the soap business in the Liverpool area.

Use freebmd to identify your father's siblings......and their registered names.

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

The soap company name was Bibby........without the 'e' which is in your grandfather's line.

Your best bet is to research Maria.............to prove (or disprove) the story
