When my father, Bill Rainbow, son of Percy Thomas Tilley Rainbow, brother of Tom and Jack etc. moved from his house in Llandudno to a flat following the death of his wife Jennie (Nin), my step mother, we found one of those very large family bibles.I had the sense to scan it before it went to anold book store and retrieved the family register page with a few names on it.
It starts with William John Marriott (Dec 18th, 1858).In the list it includes Ethel Elizabeth Marriott, our(?) grandmother, born June 30th, 1886. I wonder if it ever sold?
The last entry is in 1892, Alfred James Marriott.
A fax of this page would be the thing for you. As I mentioned earlier, it looks like we are cousins, I guess you are in your late 60's, about 10 years more than myself.Grandparents lived at "Marain", Crossways Rd. Coventry.If this is all correct, give me a jingle on the internet and include a fax number.
I have been in the States since the late 60's, have had fleeting contact with Jacqeline or Jillian, Jack's girls.Our fathers were not a chatty bunch, often wondered why.Talked to my Dad this morning, and he mentioned they used to be in touch with Pat (Fox?) in the old days.Time to catch up if we have the same g-dad, Percy Thomas Tilley Rainbow.
