I am trying to trace back to my great grandmother Catherine Sanchez (Catalina Spanish equivalent I guess?).
I have here birth as 1853, apparently in Barcelona. Her father Joseph (Jose?) Sanchez was well positioned owning chemists and ships according to my family stories. Catherine Sanchez married John Chidwick in St Mary the Crowned Gilbraltar in 1879. The story goes Catherine eloped to marry John who was with the British Army, and her family disowned her.
I think shortly after marriage, John was posted back to England (was in the British Army).
I would like to know more details of her father, who her mother was and go back even further if possible?
Thanks Trev Taplin
