Brother not seen for past 20 years

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Margaret Report 8 Dec 2019 16:20

I'm asking for my husband who has not seen or heard from his brother John Sidney Holmes for the last 20 years. The last time they saw/spoke was at their fathers funeral.
John is married to Angela and last known they were living at Shoreham on Sea.
I've never met my brother and sister in law either as we met and
got married after my husbands parents had both died.
We're all getting on in years and John will be about 71-72 now
It would be nice to contact them but we don't have any address or phone number anymore.
Can anyone find their current address so I can maybe break the ice and send them a Christmas card
Thanks to all for reading this and Merry Christmas to you all

John and Angela were in Shoreham on 2013 ER.

The house was sold in 2016.

Have you tried writing to the present occupiers? They may have a forwarding address for them - or the estate agent who dealt with the sale might know their present address.

Just a possibility:

Until 2003 John S and Angela E were at another address in Shoreham, with a Jason C (presumably a son) .

A John S and an Angela E married in Bradford in 1971, and a Jason with the relevant mms was born there.

Unfortunately I can't see Jason on ERs after 2003.
Perhaps he's opted out of the public ER.


No that theory's wrong.
The Jason who was born in Bradford died in 1988, in Bradford.

However, the one who was with John & Angela in 2003 was then at another address in a Sussex village until 2006.
And then at another address in the same Sussex village until 2010 (without his middle initial.)

There were 2 Jason's born in Bradford. The one who died in 1988 was born that same year.

Also looks to be a daughter born in Sussex.
