Hello Peter
Thank you for your message. I haven't been on Genes for a couple of weeks and I've only just seen your message. I had put this side of the tree "to bed" but may revisit. Thanks again. Marian

Hello Peter and welcome to the boards.

Marian posted this thread over a year ago so she might not return to it now.

If you click on her can send her a personal message.

Hi Guys, my grandfather William Edward Hull had a mug handed down through the family with Henry Foster Hull Woodifield Farm 1850 inscribed on it. The spelling is "Foster" on the mug. "Bill" Hull was born in 1903 and I think Henry Foster Hull was his grandfather. He didn't talk much about his life before he moved to Western Australia in 1928 aged 25. He had an oldest brother Tom and he was 1 of 10 siblings. If I can help you out with the small amount that I know just ask. Regards Peter Hull.

Hello Margee, it is definitely Marie's post because I have just looked Thomas and Hannah's marriage on familysearch and he married Hannah Forster 19 May 1928 at Lanchester, hence Henry's middle name.

I would suggest that you buy the birth certificate to see who his parents were:

Births Mar 1850 (>99%)

Hull Henry Forster Auckland 24 21

Sorry, forgot his birth it is 1850 and Marie's is the right one, thanks. thanks also Helen. Henry Forster H marries Sarah Johnson in 1885 so it is the right one. I obviously got his parents wrong.
