I am responding to Claire Mitchell, who wrote: “Hello! I am trying to find out any information on the MYERS family who lived at 128 Brompton Road, London … The parents were George b. 1838 and Mary b. 1841 and there were 3 sons Godfrey b. 1879, Morris b. 1868 & Samuel b. 1859 who as far as I can tell never married and all stayed living as bachelors with their parents. I think there were some more siblings but these are the ones I know about. If anyone has any information I would be very appreciative!”.
With the astonishing flurry of messages on the SIG coming through every day now, I missed & deleted the post so I am extremely grateful to Eleanor Richmond’s reply, without which this would have passed me by. I bring this to the group’s attention because with the increasing number of messages appearing under a single all-encompassing group, I am concerned that we may see similar problems in the future. I don’t have a solution to offer but am flagging this for skilled facilitators’ attentions.
Claire – I am very excited to report that Godfrey, Morris and Samuel were my 2x great uncles. There were 16 siblings in the family, many of whom died young. Their brother, Dick (aka Lazarus) was my great grandfather. Please write to me privately.
Eleanor – Myers is a very common name. I am not aware of this Canadian connection … but who knows?
