Hi Steph1484,

Thanks for your message - it arrived just as I was visiting my 82 year old mother, Jean (nee Ballance), whose father (my Grandad), Albert Tooth Ballance, was a brother of your great grandad, George Tooth. There was quite a tribe of them apparently - my Grandad was the youngest of 13.

He was born in Rugeley, Staffs but moved to Coventry - he too was in business and had a newsagent/tobacconist shop for many years. I lived above the shop with my Mum & Dad while my Gran & Grandad had the lower floor.

My Mum can remember visiting her "Uncle George" in Longton and she also has details of the Ballances going back quite a way - let me know if you'd like to know more.

All the best, Steve Gilbert
