Hello - I just came across your post of 16 April 2008 - my grandfather was Charles Randle Croad, born in Sydling St. Nicholas in 1870. My father was Robert Croad, born 1905. I think my grandfather was possibly your great great grandfather Frederick Rendle Croad's brother.
I have done no research before last week when the 1911 England census was posted online. My cousin is Peter Randle Croad born 1945. I am/was Joyce Elizabeth Croad, born 1941. Sorry no information any earlier than 1870.
With best wishes, Joyce
