Re: OFFEN surname in England
I wonder if you could help - I'm researching my fathers side of the family and experiencing great difficultly finding out anything about my grandmother LOUIE OFFEN.
This is all we know:
She was born in Herne Hill in London 10 August 1892.
Her parents were Charles Offen and Jane Maslin.
She had at least two siblings James Offen and Mournie Offen - the latter was last heard of during WW1 wounded and on a hospital ship bound for Canada.
There are no records of the family in the UK 1901 census and I was wondering whether you have any links in your research.
FYO Louie Offen married my grandfather Richard Holding and lived in Preston, Lancashire. She died in 1953.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
