From New Zealand - I'm still looking for anybody connected with George Richard Oatham and Adeline Emily Oatham (my parents) There was an Ernie Oatham. My father George was a fireman in London during WW2. My mother died in 1946/7 and I have no idea what she looked like - there were no photos as far as I know.
I've come across a Daniel Oatham, a race--horse trainer living in Cambridge, New Zealand & feel he must be a relative as he too is from Hackney. He too cannot trace his own ancestry. Anybody out there who can help?
My father changed his name to Daniel Othem-Flynn and lived and died in Aberdeen in 1977 approx - can't remember the exact year. I have some half-siblings last heard of in Glasgow c/o NSPCC: Brian and Rosalie + one other girl. Anybody of that connection heard of these people? Brian (probably Oatham) would be 55 years old.
