reached a bit of a dead end here. My paternal grandfather (william richard Atkins, born 24 Jan 1903) shows Medicus richard Atkins and emily elizabeth Jarrett as his parents. william has three other siblings william married doris Irene bines (born 9 nov 1907) and had three children -James , Valerie Patricia and terence richard atkins(my father born 29 nov 1937) any links further back from medicus appreciated. Nb sent off for a marriage certificate showing Medicus richard Atkins married 1872 in Bethnal green-this shows he married Hannah Reynolds. father of this Medicus was another Medicus Atkins. This seemed a dead end but cannot believe that around the turn of the century there were three Medicus's roaming around!
