Yes, I am researching Rayboulds, mainly in Cradley (in the Black Country) and Birmingham. I have traced my Rayboulds in Cradley back to the early 1830s when my 3rd great grandparents William and Rosannah Raybould came to Cradley. William was born in Harborne, although I have yet to find any record of him there, and the first two sons were born in Cannock and Rowley Regis. I have records 100s of my Rayboulds and their spouses and offspring, also copies of numerous other Raybould family trees.

Do get in touch - and take a look at www.cradleylinks.com

I was interested in your search for Rayboulds. My Father Frederick Harry Raybould, born 1909 with 8 sisters, one of which lived in Cradley, would tell us stories of a famous Brown in our ancestry. John Brown, Queen Victorias supposed lover and confidante. I have little other info, but if you think this is worth researching, contact me and we can make further enquiries.

Regards

My father came to Cradley at the end of WW2, and married my mother (to be) soon after. His family were Londoners whereas the John Brown of Queen Victoria fame was a Scotsman. So I can't help you on that aspect of your ancestry. But I am interested in your Cradley connection. Frederick Harry Raybould is not of my immediate family, but there were a lot of Rayboulds in Cradley. Are you saying that your father's sister came to Cradley from somewhere else? Where from? Where were they born?

I will need to attempt some more research probably with my older sisters. I can only remember that in the 1950's, I used to cycle from Kings Heath, Birmingham, where I lived as a child, over to my Aunts shop named "Rayboulds Stores" somewhere in Cradley, which she owned for many years. I think she remained a spinster all her life. I also have a feeling that they lived in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham as children. I saw her little as I did with most of my Aunts on my fathers side, due to a family disagreement over the inheritance of my Grandfathers money following an early death.
I believe he owned Butchers shops. I don't even know most of their names I'm afraid.
I'll contact you again if I can obtain better info.

Regards.

There was a Raybould's shop in Cradley High Street, when Cradley had a High Street. I believe the proprietor was a Harold Raybould. I do not think he is "one of mine", certainly not close, but I could yet be proved wrong on this.

My grandfather's name was Harold George Raybould. He lived in Chicago. I would be interested to see if there is a connection.

I have two clues as to my Raybould connection in Chicago. One is that my grandmother spoke of her oldest brother as having had the chance of going to live and work in Chicago at the invitation of relatives there. My uncle did not take up the offer. The second evidence is a postcard from Chicago dated 21 May 1909 from "Maria" to her cousin John Raybould, my grandmother's father. The picture on the postcard is of the Union Park Congregational Church, which I understand is now the First Baptist Congregational Church, at 60 North Ashland, Chicago. In the few written words she asks if the church is like the one she went to when she was in England, but it not clear if this was on a visit or in the early years of her life before emigration. She mentions her father, but not by name, and an uncle Will and an uncle Jim. She is discussing a picture sent to them and they are trying to work out who it is of.

I am sure that these were close relations, and that there was a lot of contact with my lot back home in England. However, I am unable to work out who they are, and I have a fairly comprehensive Raybould family tree. Of course, they may not even have the surname Raybould, if they are the offspring a of a married female Raybould.

The uncle who was invited over to Chicago was John William Raybould, and he had brothers and sisters Ellen, Elsie Maria (my grandma), Benjamin, Rosehannah, Baden, Alfred, Joseph and Hubert. Their mother was Mary Ann formerly Attwood, and their Raybould grandmother was Mary (her two sons John and Alfred took their mother's name, their father was William Garratt but Mary later married James Yardley).

Does any of this mean anything to you. What do you know about your grandfather Harold George Raybould?
