Hi Jude, I think the Skilton may be a red herring. From the other info looks like the family living at Folletts House around the time Charles came over in 1947 were called Palk.

At least we've got you back another generation or so. Let us know on her if you need any further help. MC

Well - 1 year on and I am tracing Arthur Harold Parker from the other way - this post has been brilliant for me.
He was borm Plympton 1899 Registered 1900 - mother was Evelina Goodman - daughter of Ann Goss of Brixton Devon and Thomas Goodman.
Ann Goss was the daughter of William Goss of Brixton (I think) and his second wife.

William Goss was the son of Robert Goss and Mirian Cockram married in Brixton - I believe Miriam was from Buckland Monachorum and Robert maybe from Cornwall.
The Robert Goss bit is in my tree here - but I have moved to - there is a picture of Evelina late 1800's there - I have the same ID on both sites.
All I have to do now is work on his brother Ernest Thomas Parker ( I am descended from William Goss's sister Elizabeth Goss who married Thomas Endle Stevens in Plymouth)

Hi Brian - welcome to the boards.

Seeing as Judith Ann last posted a year ago she mightn't realise there's a further response. You could click on her name to make contact and share information.

Good luck, MC
