Hello..great to hear from you and yes, I think we did talk sometime ago.
I still havnt had much success with my research but I have at least found several names of my father's brothers.
We are actually off on holiday in the morning for a week but will contact you as soon as we return.
It has finally been confirmed who my father was, Albert Douglas Wattley born 1919. His parents were Victor Wattley (possibly born in London) and Eliza Chapman. Albert was the brother of at least 11
We have been in touch with my cousin Emile Wattley on Nevis and their daughter Cindy from New York.
My half brother Ian himself went to Nevis and St.Kitts afew years back and met up with several Wattleys whilst he was there.
Trouble is...apparently there is a land arguement going on over there and they were (and still are) very suspicious of us over in England!! I think they think we are jumping on the band wagon!!
Anyway....we are back on the 4th July and would love to hear more from you. our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Bye for now...Ray and Marlyn
P.S. I will say....we have not been able to verify at all the story about a Wattley jumping ship...My cousin who we 'found' in Leicestershire England lived in Nevis and was the daughter of Wilfred Wattley..my dad's brother. She has given me some information but came to England in 1958. Saying that she does go back to Nevis for a few months each year.
