hi all please can any one help?
i was born a pilcher and i am tacing my family tree my parents were edric claremont pilcher born portsmouth uk december 25 1917 he married jenny may stella thornton-boyce,
his farther was victor hugh pilcher born 1882 i believe in portsmouth uk he was married to lucy gibbins they married in september 1904 i have found out they also had at least one other son horace e pilcher born march 1915 he died while serving in the navy durring the 2nd world war in the year 1943 he was aged 28.i have been led to believe that my father had at least one other brother with the name victor but i have not as yet been able to confim this i also believe there is a connection with a william hope pilcher born snaigow perthshire 1884 i believe his farther was robert hope pilcher born in kent uk (possibly wyndham area )

my mothers farther was a jack thornton-boyce who i belive came from the usa to sign up for the first world war this is all i know except he had told a lie about his age to get into the army he married my grand mother ethel may silver nee hyson after the death of her first husband i think this was around 1919 i believe his year of birth was arround 1879

if anyone has any information that would help me i would be very greatful with hope in my heart many thanks in advance lorraine now living rhondda cynon taff south wales uk
