Henry John Kilby, Filey, Yorkshire
Posted by: Diane Daly (ID *****7690) Date: October 09, 2005 at 15:36:57
  of 568

My grandfather Henry John Kilby was born in Filey, Yorkshire, in 1868. He had 3 sisters, Emily, Grace and Mary Ellen (Ella). My gt-grandfather, also Henry John Kilby, ran Foords Hotel in Filey and following his death in 1874 my gt-grandmother, Elizabeth Kilby, took over the Crown Hotel in Filey.
My grandfather came to New Zealand in 1892 and had 9 children, one of whom was my father. I have some of my male line back to Thomas and son John Kilby, both Lord Mayors of York. Also related to Arthur Forbes Gordon Kilby, VC, and have photos of my father, myself and my son beside the memorial to Arthur Kilby in York Minster.
Interested in making contact with anyone else related to this same line of Kilbys.
