John Leslie Tonks
Posted by: Amanda Baker (ID *****9921) Date: July 24, 2002 at 01:06:21
  of 327

I have been recently investigating my half brothers relatives on his fathers side of the family, so far, this is what I have found out;
Grandparents are:

Leslie and Margaret Tonks of South Yorkshire, England. Margaret's middle name is Quinn, but I do not know her maiden name. I don't know Leslie's middle name, but am hoping to find out soon.
Leslie was born on the 20th of June 1928 and Margaret was born on the 27th of June 1930. They were married on the 2nd of August 1946.

Their children:

John Leslie born the 19th of October 1949
Geoffrey (do not know middle name yet) born on the 21st of December 1950 or 1951
Jacquelin Margaret born on the 15th of October 1960

I have been informed that Geoffrey has been married twice, his first wife was Beverly (I do not know her middle or maiden name, or her date of birth), together they had a daughter, Emma Louise born in 1981 (I do not know what date).
His second wife's name is Sue (I do not know her middle or maiden name, or her date of birth), together, they had two children, Adam born in 1991 (I do not know what date, or what his middle name is), Samantha born in 1996(I do not know what date, or what her middle name is).

I have been informed that Jacquelin is married and has children, though I'm not sure how many, their sex, or their dates of birth.

I have been told that John was married and had three children in England, and that one of those children may have fallen down a flight of stairs, and died of a broken neck.
After this relationship, he came to Australia, married a woman by the name of Jennifer Joan, she already had a son, Jamie born on the 7th of August 1972, John adopted hime after they had married. Together, they had another two children, Andrea born on the 8th of March or April 1975 and Christopher born on the 12th of April 1977. None of these children had middle names.
After John and Jennifer got divorced, John had another relationship with a woman by the name of Maureen Shirley Muntelwit born the 29th of October 1950, I know this is fact, as this woman is my mother. Together, they had a son whom they named Daniel Leslie, he was born on the 11th of November 1982.
Maureen and John separated in 1985, and Daniel never saw his father again.
John's next relationship was with Tessie Manuel born the 8th of March 1954, they had a sone together, John Ashley born on the 19th of May 1991.

Christopher died at the age of 16 in a car accident on the Bruce highway just outside of Ayr (Australia).

John took his own life on the 16th of April 1996 due to severe depression over and accidental death of a motorcyclist who had ignored stop signs. He is buried in Australia.

If this sounds familiar to anyone, even just parts of it, I would appreciate hearing from you. I will check this bulliten once per week. I would like to know if anyone knows about John's first relationship, His Brother or sister, anything.

Kind Regards Amanda :)
