Gladwin Family Genealogy Forum
I have been reading the messages on this board with interest as I have been searching for the origins of our Gladwin connections with little success. My husbands ggrandfather was Henry James Gladwin b 1837 Shoreditch London UK. He had siblings Rowland William, William Powis, Edward, Harriett Frances, and Mary Ann Emily. Their parents were James Gladwin, and Jane Emma Powis m 1833 Southwark London. The children were all born in Shoreditch /Hoxton/
St Pancras area. Rowland and William seem to be family names as they were passed on to subsequent generations. In the late 19thC some of the family lived in the Walthamstow area of Essex. A Rowland Powis Gladwin emigrated to Australia in the early 1900's, and had a son Peter who wrote some novels.
As so many of the Gladwins seem to be linked together in some way or other, does anybody, anywhere recognise this family? Can anyone suggest a branch that this Henry and Rowland etc could have come from? Do any Australian Gladwins know of Rowland Powis Gladwin (d Sydney 1993)? I'd really appreciate any information
