Hi I am married to Peter James Smyformerly of Harwich Essex, aged 45, parents Jack and Christine (nee EAgle), i am trying to help him by tracing his family line, slowly but surely, his parents are now deceased and with my mum-in-law went my research source, his grand-father is thought to be William. his father was born on a barge and settled in Harwich,26 main road.Radford, Robert(deceased),Derek,Jack(deceased)are my husbands' siblings. The others do not appear interested nor know much about the family as my husband was the youngest by many years and his father died when he was 8 he is curious about the connection of Keer Smy which we are told was the surname years back and now the eldest son in our line has it as a middle name, ie our son is Darren Keer Smy.
I also have been contacted by an old lady who was adopted and her given name was Beatrice Joan Smy (no fathers name) and mother was Blanche Davis she was born in Sudbury Suffolk, she is hoping to find family or siblings she was born in 1917 so I thought I'd ask around for her...as one does and get side- tracked! regards Glynis
