Hi again Bev, Thanks for your speedy reply. I've been able to trace my family back to my ggfather - Francis Norie.Apparently a Londoner.My gfthr was Edgar Norie & my fthr Francis Joseph Norie.
We were originally Norie-Miller's.I understand that a Sir Norie-Miller and my gggfthr had some difference which resulted in the latter's deleting the Miller half of the name.I'm trying to get to the core of this.
I came across an excerpt of the opening of the Craigie Hill Golf Club by a Mr Francis Norie-Miller.I think it is the same person who became the first Baronet and was an insurance co manager.
Well that ends this response.If you can add any thing more, I'll be much obliged.
