Hi,I'm trying to locate a Brian Taws in Australia.
My Grandfather was John Bolger Taws and was married to Joan (maiden name was Zarb who was from Malta) until his death in 1974.They had six children Catherine (my Mother), Charles, William, Joan (who died as a child), Josphine and Sylvia.
My grandfather was from South Shields and had I think, two other brothers, Bill (who recently died) Terry and also Brian.
During the war they were placed in an orphenage and were seperated.My grandfather went into the Merchant Navy and later settled in Portsmouth in the sixties.I know from my Nan that my Grandfather did track down Brian just before he died, but sadly my Nan never got his whereabouts or an address.
If you know of any Brain Taws in Australia (please note that the surmane is NOT spelt with an E at the end), or indeed think that you were related to a John Bolger Taws, I would be grateful for any information.
