Hi Gillian, I saw your reply to another member and wondered if you could help me? My family name is Russell and I am seeking either John Russell or John W Russell who were lacemakers in Calais in the 1800s. My grandfather Thomas Russell was born in France in 1898 and the 1901 Census Nottingham England lists his father John William) as British Subject born in France about 1867. We beleive his father John was also born in France. If it helps my ggrandmother was French (Rose Louise Richard) born 1871. I hope you can help, but if not, Merry Christmas and Best Regards Frank.
