Hi Helen, Let's see if I can get a little further! You may have read previous messages that I have left on this page. Just to re-cap, I am a member of the genuine family of Ivory, since there are imposters, apparently, who do not possess the correct family crest! My father was a Samuel John Ivory, born in Stepney on 10/2/1916, and, to cut a long story short, was re discovered by his first cousin, Len, after 50 years. Dad last remembered holding Len as a babe in arms. Len had traced the family tree back as far as he could, to the 1600's, and I am sure I have a copy of the family tree drawn up, in my loft. This was about 12 years ago, and there has been a house move, since. If you are interested in my trying to find it, and see whether we might be related, give us an e-mail! Regards and best wishes!
