My name is William Marriott and I have just embarked on tracing my ancestors. I came across your notice board and wondered if I could help you or if you could give me a head start in what I'm sure will be long and, at times, frustrating journey.
My Grandfather was called Ernest Marriott and was born in Nottingham 12/11/1889. His brothers were called Fred, Joe, Bill and John. He had three sisters, two were called Mabel and Agnes. He moved Gateshead and married Norah Wakeford b. 23/02/1898. They had three children, Bill, Iris and John (my father).
