It looks as if we may be distantly related. My grandmother was Mry Clara Louisa Simons, who married Henry Wiloiam Shand and settled in Chile. Her father was William Simons, a solicitor in Merthyr.I would love to go further back - and forwards - in the family history but am having some trouble navigating these websites. I found your poosting of October 2006 and there are a few minor errors regarding the family in Chile. Please get in touch and we can share info.
