Crikes, Kareena, I think I might be able to help - if your ancestor was Robert, and his dad was Charles (1820-?) and HIS dad was William Westwood (1790-1863) then we might be from the same Westwood group.The family ran the Asseyors Office for nearly a century..Were Robert's brothers named Charles, Roland, William and Samuel? Im a descendent of Samuel's line.Gee this is terrific, if true. Ive not been able to find much about the family other than what my grandad (Albert Sydney Westwood) told me..I'm not in Birmingham now, we emigrated in the late 50's, and now live in the Wild West of the USA (New Mexico)...but we're all busy trying to fill the huge holes in our genealogy. One story I was told, was that we were descendents of William Howe, of the Howe Brothers who ran the royal navy during the revolutionary war.The Howe Brothers were believed to have been the illegitimate children of George II - Cor! We may have a royal link in the family!
