Hi there Hellenore - it was great to see your post, my family & I have been researching the Rathbones for years. The incoming info seems to go in waves we find out a lot and then the well seems to run dry, so it is exciting to hear from a new source! My g.grandfather & Caractacus Reliance were brothers. CRR had 7 children the oldest was Ephraim Frederick Clifford whose 1st son was also Caractacus Reliance. Where do you fit in? Looking forward to hearing from you.
