Hello Peter, I am very interested in your reply. My great grandfather was Alfred Alfrey, born east grinstead 1839, emigrated to NZ in 1870. He had several brothers, and at least 2 of them lived in lancashire later. I have been trying to sort it all out and have made a lot of progress. The two brothers were (1)william born 1829 who lived in North Meols in 1881. He had a son Frederick born about 1878, and other children. (2) Henry born1823 lived in Habergham eaves in 1881. I have loads more info going backwards in time from there. Can you give me some more details please? Prue.
