Hi, I'm trying to trace the Jewell family from London, England but am struggling to find anything at all, particularly as I'm in Australia. My great-grandmother is Edith Rose Jewell - born in 1911 in Ratcliff, London, England and died in 1995 in Sydney, Australia
Her parents were Edith Ellen Percival and Edward Jewell but I don't know any dates for them. I'm pretty sure they were born in England.
Ellen married John Ernest Nicholls from New South Wales, Australia in Australia in 1935 so she would have come to Australia before 1935. He was born in 1909 to Mary Ellen Lopez (1881 - 1920) and Ernest Alfred Nicholls (1880 - 1958). I've been able to find a lot about him, particularly as I'm in Australia and that's where his family is from, but still nothing about the Jewell family.
I know that Ellen had two children, Warren in 1936 and Robert in 1941 but that's where my knowledge of the Jewell family ends except for myself and my mother.
I'm pretty sure that most of Ellen ancestors are from England and possibly Ireland.
