He would have died in the 1960's and I would guess he was in his 30's at the latest when he died. His wife was Ann maiden name Seddon and has a daughter named Barbara. Ann may still be alive although well into her 80's now. She never remarried. Last time I saw her was at a family funeral probably 6 years ago. Unfortunately I have no idea how I would get in touch with either of them at the moment.

Well I have traced back to 1924 at the moment, found John's mother was a Smith (not helpful), could do with a lead on his father. Going forward Barbara born 1968 married a chap named William Bright in 1985. Barbara was born a year before her father died.

Incidentally John was born in Mansfield

Can't say it is a relative at present but confirming the name is a help.

Thought about this. Last time I spoke to Barbara she referred to her Father as John, but my Mother always referred to him as Cyril. I never knew him. Last time I was in communication with Barbara (via Genes Reunited) her name was McArthy or McArthur. I have no idea how many times she has been married. I have had a quick look on Genes Reunited where you can request to see other peoples trees (I am not subscribed) She is using her maiden name of Raynor.

Hi Paul and Malcolm,

Yes that's me, Barb, and Cyril (John) was my dad...but I don't remember getting married:biggrin: I like being a Raynor too much!

By the looks of things we do have a connection as my grandad, Walter b.1898, lived at 31 Queen Street on the 1901 census and Basford at that time was over-run with Raynors, mainly thanks to g.g.g.grandad Joseph and his 10 sons!!!!

I notice this thread is a couple of years old but if you still need any info let me know. 

Regards, Barb.
