Michael - as this is purely for FH purposes, the best way to reach out to a living descendent is to search all members trees for all of his children, their husbands, wives, children etc etc.

Although we could have a fair stab at finding real life contact details, there is no quarentee that they'd be remotely interested in someone who died over a 100 years ago.

As you've probably found all the census he's listed on, you'll have quite a number of names to work with.

In case you don't have this -- his probate calendar entry

Death Place: Kent, England
Probate Date: 16 Apr 1910

Noticing that we have been in contact before, could you please reply by adding to the thread rather than sending PM's to the individual posters? Thank you.


Michael Report 12 Sep 2016 15:24

Sorry about that.
I will concentrate on the following relations.
Paul Dennis Brown born 1969 Canterbury Kent.
Father Malcolm J>G>Brown.
Graham R Brown born 1954 Canterbury Kent.
Father Roy C.T.Brown.
Ivan[or Ivor] G.Brown born 1940 Canterbury Kent.
Father John Hatton Brown.
I would love to know if these people are still around and their whereabouts.
Will keep my fingers crossed!


patchem Report 14 Sep 2016 06:57

You have said that you will concentrate on, amongt others:

'Graham R Brown born 1954 Canterbury Kent.
Father Roy C.T.Brown.'

As Roy was born in 1931, and is showing on the ER in Canterbury in 2012, have you got evidence of his death, so death certificate and/or probate for more information?


ArgyllGran Report 15 Sep 2016 11:04

There's an Ivan G Brown of the right age living in London on the 2015-16 electoral roll.

I'll PM details - but please bear in mind he may be someone completely different.


ArgyllGran Report 16 Sep 2016 16:40

PM from Michael re Ivan G Brown:

Hi there,
Very many thanks for this info.
Sounds like my relation.
Will send him a note and see if he answers me.
PS If he is related he will be my 6th cousin.

PM from Michael about male offspring of this 1829 Hatton Brown:

"I have explored all male offspring and the result is that either all girls or no available details of children after marriage.
Even looked at other trees who state the same result.

Michael's OP says, "Am trying to trace a living relative of this family as he was related on my maternal side."

Michael -
do you know the name of this male living relative? Or are you just hoping there is such a person?
