I am Steven Shorey of Kent UK, I am trying to trace the history of my branch of the Shorey family, my Grandfather Albert Shorey and my Great Grandfather Henry Shorey are the most likely links.The only information I have is listed here. Ideally I would like to know if Henry Shorey or Albert Shorey had any other brothers or sisters. My researches have not found any connections outside London UK.
My Current Earliest Record is off Henry Shorey estimated birth around 1860-1865 (location unknown)
Henry Shorey (Labourer) was deceased by the time of his son Albert Edward Shorey's marriage in 1918 (information from Albert's original wedding certificate which I have). I have no further information on Henry at this time and believe my branch splits here or with Albert Edward Shorey.
Albert Edward Shorey was a 'Brushmaker'(the only child of Henry we know of) b */*/ 1893d 13/1/28 (buried in Chingford Essex). Married Winifred Robinson on 22/12/1918 (b */*/1892 d 22/10/1944 killed when a flying bomb hit her house. Winifred is buried in Manor Park East London.
Albert and Winifred had two sons :
Jack Shorey(MY FATHER)b 8/9/27 d 10/3/83 & Albert Richard Shorey b 17/1/21 d 21/1/94 (did not marry and had no children)- Interestingly Jack was in the same house in Beecholme Road London E.5 as his mother Winifred when it was bombed and she was killed. He narrowly escaped death (then age 16).
Jack (MY FATHER) married Irene Gladys White in August 1952 and died of cancer in 1983. Jack lived in Orpington Kent UK from the time of his marriage until his death.Jack and Irene Gladys had two children.
