Dennis Report 17 Sep 2013 10:14

Thank you.

Does anyone havefont info for Felicity who is the daughter of Josephine Beards and Ronald Hill who were married in 1959? They spent some time in Saudi Arabia but otherwise they lived in Shropshire and in Claverley, Shropshire as one of the places. They had one daughter, Felicity Hill who has married at least twice. Any info. Would be helpful.


Reggie Report 17 Sep 2013 11:50

As already stated above, there is NO record of a Felicty.........have you looked for info yourself?

..............perhaps she wasn't their natural child?

Or born outside the UK?
