Jane, My grandmother's name was Ada Jewers, originally from London. She was born around 1880, and lived to 88. Her immediate family moved to America, but she wouldn't go and instead ran off with a gypsy type named George Smith who was my grandfather. They lived in Edmonton, north London, and had 13 children. There are also stories of earlier members who were servants at Windsor Castle. Does any of this sound familiar ? I'd love to hear from you if it does.
