Seeking information on my grandfather Arthur Ernest Rainbow born 16th March 1875. Any information at all on his life before 1904 would be greatly appreciated. I know he worked at Brookwood Asylum in Surrey as a nursing attendant from 1904 but would like to know where he was born. His father was Henry Joseph Rainbow but do not know name of mother or how many brothers and sisters etc. He met my grandmother Mabel Bytheway at Darenth Asylum where they both worked prior to 1904 and they subsequently moved to Surrey where they worked at Brookwood Asylum. They married after May 1906 but I do not know where or date. They had three children, Ernest born 1911, Dorothy (my mother) born 1912, Elizabeth born 1917. After Mabel's death in January 1941 Arthur remarried in 1951 He married May Hicks, nee Goring-Thompkins. Arthur and Mabel are buried in St. Johns churchyard, Woking, Surrey.

I am connected to the Goring-Thompkins line Re: Arthur remarried in 1951 He married May Hicks, nee Goring-Thompkins. I am wondering if you have any info on May Hicks? I have a number of Goring-Thompkins descended from Orlando Goring who seemed to take his mother's maiden name Thompkins /Tompkins name as well. The Gorings were from the Surrey area.
Thanks,
Barb

Thank you for your e-mail. The only information I have for May is as follows. May Sabrina Goring-Thompkins, daughter of Orlando Goring-Thompkins. May born about 1885. She married Walter Bowers. She married Bertie Frederick HIcks. She married Arthur Ernest Rainbow (my grandfather) 17th November 1951 at St. John the Baptist Church, Woking, Surrey. They lived at 6 Anchor Hill, Knaphill, Woking, Surrey. Address of May prior to marriage to Arthur 2 Council Cottages, Anchor Hill, Knaphill, Woking, Surrey. I would be pleased to find out what happened to May after my grandfather's death in 1957. If you send me your address I will post what I have on Orlando's family. Hope this helps.

Hi

My name is Jennifer and I am just starting to research my husbands family tree. His great grandfather was Percy Goring Thompkins who married Nellie Stevens, Percy's father was Orlando Goring/Thompkins/Tomkins - I see from a message that you are related to Orlando and wondered if you would be able to help me as I am so confused - I can see where the Goring Tompkins surnames come from, David Goring and Mary Ann Tomkins, but the surnames seem to change through the years after David's death and I am struggling to follow each line through.

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Thank you

Jennifer
