HELLO THERE LONG LOST RELATIVE

HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


sorry for the delay but I have been over-run with family obligations etc, etc, and never got a chance to check my emails, let alone go through the endless piles of information I have. Many decades ago I met a family member by the name of Edwin who gave me the descending tree that he had at that time, of Louisa and William`s descendants.

However, having gone through my suitcases, yes suitcases, I found the `tree` that Edwin gave me and it shows that Isaac Parker Blackmore born 1856 (Louisa/William Parker`s 4th child/2nd son) married Elizabeth Stone on 16th October 1878 and had a son named WILLIAM born 16th February 1885 who married 1. MABLE HEK 2. Molly Thomas and 3. Olive Dando. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah !!!!!!

For some reason, probably confusion, in pencil Edwin has has the date 29.3.1910 under Molly`s name and I am not sure if he had confused the wives/marriage dates or what!!!! William died 25th September, 1954.

William and his family ran the Ring of Bells Pub in the Coalpit Heath/Iron Acton area and my husband and I had a drink there a few years ago. The Landlord at the time remembered in the history of the pub that there had been landlords in the name of Blackmore until about the 1930`s if memories serves me.

Apparently, according to Edwin, your William Parker who married Mabel also had a son called William and a sister named Alma who married a man named Rodgers and had two children named Fay and Terence. Is that right? Where do you fit in? I would love to know.

Louisa`s father, James, had his birth place down in the census as Monmouth but I have had no luck with finding him.

There is so much I can tell you about the family - I could write a book.

I am descended from Albert Louisa/William`s 6th child/3rd son). FIVE OF LOUISA CHILDREN WERE PROFOUNDLY DEAF BUT LEARNT TO LIPREAD> SORRY MY COMPUTER IS HAVING A GLITCH SO PLEASE EXCUSE CAPITALS _ I AM NOT SHOUTING!! PHOEBE DIED IN THE LOCAL INSANE ASYLUM< DAVINA LOOKED AFTER HER MOTHER AND NEVER MARRIED WILLIAM AND ISAAC BOTH MARRIED AND HAD CHILDREN AND STAYED IN THE BRISTOL AREA ALBERT MARRIED AND HAD CHILDREN HENCE ME AND MINE AND CAME LONDON WITH MARY EDWARD EMILY ARTHUR HARRY FLORENCE AND ROBERT TO SET UP BLACKMORE PATTERNS (DRESSMAKING PAPER PATTERNS)> ROBERT ALSO MARRIED BUT HAD NO CHILDREN>

I KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THE FAMILY AND HAVE SO MANY DOCUMENTS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO YOU AS WELL AS MYSELF>

ANYWAY PROBLEM SOLVED WE ARE RELATED> SO WELCOME TO THE PARKER BLACKMORES>

BY THE WAY WILLIAM PARKER NEVER MARRIED LOUISA BECAUSE HE HAD BEEN MARRIED BEFORE AND IT IS TOLD IT WAS A BAD RELATIONSHIP SO HE WAS NOT ABOUT TO MARRY AGAIN> THEIR AGE DIFFERENCE IS AMAZING SHE EIGHTEEN AND HE FIFTY SIX AND JUST TO GIVE YOU A LAUGH HE DIED AT SEVENTY FIVE FROM SENILE EXHAUSTION> THE MIND BOGGLES !!!!
