I know, it's been forever since you messaged me! Following the family tree has stayed in the back of my mind for the past few years but I have never made it a priority - Unless watching Who Do You Think You Are? on SBS (guess what…"
I too belong to the WIL03 group and Cyril Salisbury Whitbread rings a bell. I've just recommenced my research into the Whitbread family after a few years break. I am descended from James & Charlotte's son Adolphus. Would love to compare notes with you as I have some gaps in the WA branches. I am piecing together info on all descendants of James and Charlotte.
Hi Kerry, I have now had time to look a bit further and I see that Cyril Salisbury Whitbread is in fact only distantly related to the descendants of James and Rebecca Jane. Please let me know if you can confirm that Cyril William is a son of Cyril Salisbury. When did your branch move out to Western Australia ? Steven
Hi Kerry, I did suspect WIL_03, although I think there is still some work to be done to prove it. Unfortunately I do not have very much information on this branch. I was contacted a couple of years back by a Michael Whitbread who descends from James Whitbread and Rebecca Jane Draper. Unfortunately he did not follow up with any concrete information so I am not sure how he fits into the tree. His father and grandfather apparently had 'Roy James' as middle names, maybe Milton RJ Whitbread born Wellington WA in 1931 was one of them? He is a member of the GW group, so maybe he will reply if you add a comment under the WIL_03 family. Steven
Hi Kerry, Welcome to the Whitebread and Whitbread One-Name Study Group. If you go to the index of families, you should find the family you are looking for - and let me know which one it is. Please contact me if you need any help, and if you can add any details. Steven
