I am trying to find out something about my grandfathers, grandfather. His name was Edwin James Arnold (GGGfather) and married Charlotte Beale about 1873 or earlier. They had 2 children, one a boy, Edwin James Arnold (GGfather) born 3 Jan 1873 and a girl, name unknown born 1873-1874. Both Edwin and Charlotte died in 1880 and the children were put in foster homes.
My Great Grandfather married Mary Elizabeth Thornley on 16 July 1896 and later moved to the London area of Lewisham in 1910 with all the family.
My grandfathers family and he are named in order of age (oldest to youngest).
Frank Godfrey Arnold
Cecil Alexander Arnold
Edwin James Arnold (my grandfather)
Fredrick Archibald Arnold
Arthur William Arnold
Florence Emily Arnold (sister)
Mary Elizabeth Arnold (sister still alive and my informant)
The two sisters were never married. But I am told there were 13 descendants from the brothers.
Two of them are my father (Arthur Allan Arnold) and his sister (Catherine).
Lily, the descendant of Arthur William Arnold lives in Australia. Her sister Peggy lives in Kent, England.
Freddie and David Arnold sons of Fredrick Archibald Arnold live in Crawley, London, England.
That's 6 accounted for.
If anything strikes a chord, please E-mail me and we can swap some facts.
