I am trying to trace Alice Rainbow/Rainbeau/Reinbeau who lived in Surrey around the turn of the century - possibly Godalming. Whether Rainbow was her married name or her maiden name I am not sure. I believe she came from France originally and may have worked as a seamstress at Hampton Court Palace. She had a large family, as many as 10 children and my last confirmed sighting of her was around the time of my grandmother's wedding in the early 1930s.

One of Alice's children was my great-grandmother was called Maude. Maude went on to marry Joseph Dawson and they lived in Lambeth/Tooting for most of their lives.

The only other family history I have is a mourning brooch given to me by my great-grandmother. There is a picture of a young man in it and he (I was told) was my great-grandmother's brother Ben, who died during WW1.

If any of this sounds familiar please contact me. I would love to try and trace this part of my family tree.
