i am trying to Find my second cousin Angela McCarthy. Born in Leigh Lancs in 1951. father William Allenby Hendry, Mother Hilda Waterfield.

Angela's first husband, Alan Dare, died in 1991. Angela married Thomas McCarthy in 1993. Two children John Dare born 1982 and Amy Elizabeth Dare born 1983.

Angela's father was in the New Zealand Air Force in WW2 and was a war hero. He stayed with my Grandmother (his Aunt) whilst stationed here. He married Hilda and remained in the UK. I think he joined the RAF after the war.

Possibly a red herring, but mentioning this just in case. shows an Angela McCarthy and Thomas McCarthy at an address in Carnforth, Lancs, on 2013-15 Electoral Roll. They were also at that address on 2006 ER.

They're also shown on Ancestry, which gives the full address. This Angela was born 1951-53, which probably means 1952, so maybe not your Angela, but you never know.

The Thomas in Carnforth was born 1957-1959, per the ER on Ancestry.

PM from Christine:


Great News i have tracked down Angela McCarthy with everyone's help and we spoke on the telephone last night. She knew nothing about the Melrose side of the family and I am going to send her all of the photos etc that I have about her Dad.

Thank you
