Re: Australian Druery's looking for Elsie
I have only recently started to research the Druery family and have information which suggests we have common ancestors.
My grandmother was Margaret Druery and she was born in Coalville Victoria. The rest of her siblings were born near Woollongong and Lithgow in NSW.
Her father was George Druery, born in Sunderland Durham,UK in 1854. He had a brother Thomas Glanville Druery, born in Easingham Durham, UK in 1851.
Information suggests that their father was Robert Ross Druery.
Sunderland and Easingham are mining towns not far up the coast from Hartlepool so our families came from the same area. There are also a lot of similar names , especially the use of Glanville as a second name.
As my grandmother died in 1936 very little information came down through the family so I would love to share any further information.
