Some readers may know that I have been trying to trace details of the family of John Fryer Scholey and John Bailey Scholey. My interest was purely one of curiosity as I had found no connection between this family and my own. It stemmed from the fact that John Fryer Scholey had left his family as a young man to rush to the call to arms of Garibaldi the famous Italian freedom fighter (sic).
I could trace neither ancestry nor decscendants of this family save for the information previously posted and I thought "What a shame if the family line of such a brave man should be lost".
I have recently found the following:
From a death announcement in The Times dated 6 December 1867 - " 28/11/1867 - At Rome, John Fryer Scholey aged 36 only son of John Bailey Scholey (late) of Clapham, Surrey and Margaret Scholey of Leamington."
So it would seem that as the only son the line has probably ceased. However, can anyony help trace his ancestors.
I shall not re-post the full details of what information I have on these two generations as they appear here on other pages - but if anyone is interested I can mail them to them.
