Bethan, Hi, Thanks for your message. My father's date of birth was 27th October 1914. I am only just beginning my search so know very little. I know my grandfather was John Meadows Brightman and he married Hannah Elsom late 1800's. John Meadows Brightman had two brothers and one sister. One of the brothers emigrated to Canada before my father was born. The family moved to Bourne from Morton in Lincolnshire. I also beleive the family had connections with Holbeach, also in Lincolnshire. When I get further information I will let you know.
