Thanks for posting all that information regarding the Raynsford family, it was very interesting.You don't see many families with 10 or 12 children these days! My mother was also interested to hear about what you have found out, and she intends to speak with her younger sister about it as she has access to the internet so you might receive a message from that branch sometime soon.
You guessed that my mother could have been the daughter of Arthur John but actually she was the daughter Albert (Bert) Raynsford who was your fathers second youngest brother.He was born in 1927 and unfortunately died in 1983, in fact only about 6 months before your own father Charles Bert.Albert married Josephine Amy Green, who I only ever knew as Peggy (1926 - 2004) and they had 3 kids, Johnnie who died in 2000, my mum Brenda and my aunt Margaret who I mentioned above. Johnnies kids are still carrying the Raynsford surname, and they are Christopher (Born 1969), Sharon (Born 1971) and John Paul (Born 1977). My mother only had the one child, me, back in 1974.I'm married and have one son who's 2 yrs 10 months (that's enough at the moment, what a handful!) Anyway, better get away now.I hope to hear from you again soon. Rob.
