Re : Staffordshire Deemings I am the eldest of four Deeming siblings Joseph Henry Timothy (Tim) Deeming b11.05.58 Willenhall Philip Nicholas Deeming b 3.01.66 Cradley Heath Claire Elizabeth Deeming b01.05.68 Cradley Heath Kate Rebecca Deeming b 1.10.71 Cradley Heath I married Julie 5 years ago & I have 2 children, Timothy Christopher (Chris) b 12.11.83 Dudley & Matilda (Matty) b 25.05.98 I broke a family tradition by not naming my eldest son Joseph Henry something that goes back literally generations. My father was Joseph Henry (Harry) b4.5.33 in Brownhills, Staffs. His father was Joseph Henry dob & b/place not known d c1985 in Cheslyn Hay, Staffs. We always call ourselves the Staffs Branch & apparently have lots of relatives in Brownhills / Cannock &c but have no contact with them. We are not a close family (seemingly a trait of our line) & I have no contact with even my siblings & surviving parent - real shame. I would love to hear more of our familys history PLUS a definative answer of the origin of our name (I know of 1 semi plausible version) - write to firstname.lastname@example.org Am I starting a new line by moving to Worcestershire?
