I'm a Cheltonian living in the Middle East at present, so my research is all online at the moment. I am researching my Grandfather's family.

They ran a common lodging house on Grove Street (nos 2 & 4). Their son Alphonse Meulbrouck (the de van started to disappear in some records) born in about 1876 married… Continue

Louisa Little (known as Mary) married my great-grandfather Charles Cook. Her mother Frances Cross (c.1820-1848) is known to be married to James Little b. in Cheltenham 1812, a plasterer.

I am trying to trace my family tree with limited information. My grandfather's name was Alfred or Alfie Morris and his wife was Ethel. I know this was Ethel's second marriage and that she had at least two children before she met my grandfather. They lived and died in Pates Ave. They had four children together Derek, David, Janet, and Esme. Any information about Alfie or Ethel would be appreciated.…

I am an American living in the Middle East. I have researched a relative named Charles Hunt b. 1824 Amesbury, County Wiltshire, England. He lived in Dublin, IR from 1847 to 1855, then he and wife and children moved to Bristol, County Gloucestershire, England in the 1861 census they are listed there. His wife was Eliza ROSE b. 1818 Dublin, IR. Their son William Charles Hunt b. 1852 Dublin eventually married a girl from Brighton, and they then migrated to USA. Best regards,
Lilly Martin
