Unfortunately, my gran was very cagey about her own past, and was reluctant to discuss much of it. This is almost certainly what led my uncle Harry to make his own enquiries without her knowledge! The idea that there may be Welsh blood is interesting; I certainly have Welsh blood on my mother's side of the family (the mining town of Merthyr Tydfil). Having spent a lot of my life in Wales, it would explain why I love it so much! I'll do a bit of digging, see what I can find out...and thanks for the reply!
