Walker/Plumb and Lawrence family in West Ham
« on: 05 February, 2013, 07:22:38 PM »
I have been on here all afternoon reading so much of history and people in the area already. I have been doing my tree over 5 years and found out plenty of our family have been our friends in the past. Trouble is we never knew they were all related till the last couple of years since I started looking.
I still get annoyed when people call me an Essex person and I insist I was born in Forest Gate Hospital and I and from West Ham thank you.
Last year I was linked by a newly found relative of the Plumb family who my Great Grandmother had married. The 1901 Census was wrong in putting the surname Walker for the husband, the first husband had died. I had been looking for the wrong family for years. Has anyone any information on my ever extending family only my newly met relatives are desperate to find them. We have no idea why the family that lived in the same roads had lost contact. Sadly my Dad has passed away and never filled in the family tree book I gave him and Mum just cant remember, she is 87. I really have no idea why nothing is known
