Re: Novell Family Information request
Yes!Charles William Novell was my graet-grandfather, but my line is decended from the marrage to Hilda Berg (she was in fact from Norway).My grandfather, Frank Ernist Novell (b 1910), was indeed one of I think 9 children and I remember a brother called Bill and a sister called Hilda (doubtless named after the parents) and I beleive there was another sister called Dora or Dorathy, but I forget all the other names as I was very young when the were around and it was never a particularly close family.However they should not be hard to locate at to my knowledge they never moved far outside of South London area.
My grandfather married Louie Lanham in, I think, 1929 at the South Croydon Wesleyan Church and the had one daughter Sheila Mary (b 1935) - my Mother.
Good to hear from you and I would love to hear anything else you discover (I'm a little stuck to do any detective work as I am currently living in the USA).
Hope to hear from you again,
