  1. Hi Jimmy, I cant remember you as you left in 74, but you might have known Steve Wright, Steve Chambers, Paul Doogan, Nicola Watts, Dawn Huntbach,Danny Boyes, Leon Needham, Kevin Britton, Colin Goddard, ....I'm Martin Kerry, used to live off Oakdale Rd near Tally Ho.
  2. Wonder if we have any local footy experts who can advise where I may find the history of the Nottingham Combination Cup winners? Particularly the early 1920's . Tried Notts FA and a few of the well known local sides Basford U, Carlton Town ( Sneinton FC) etc but no joy.
  3. All the Kerrys in Nottingham are related, we went to Nottingham & Derby between 1750 to 1840 from the Smalley/Morley/Breadsall area of Derbyshire during the industrial revolution.
  4. Kerry's are alive and kicking in Nottingham....PM me!
  5. Robert, your great granddad John was my great uncle, and my uncle Les Kerry is the cousin of Dick, Joe & John and one of the last of the cousins still with us. I do communicate with Terry Scicluna Kerry & his son Raymond has the Travellers Rest at Kilburn Derbyshire. all the Kerry's are related. If you PM me I will send you more details. Janet W is right we did live in Bakersfield/Sneinton/Carlton area, I lived on Dovedale and I think Janet used to babysit for me & my brother!!
