Greetings to you, although born a "George" my mother was Ivy Doris nee Okines from Battersea. I have been researching the Okines on a world wide basis for the past 25-30 years. You are welcome to any of my material regards your family tree but without even looking we are of the same descent. In brief my ancestry is thus :- My Mother : Ivy Doris Okines My Grandfather : Harry Okines My Gt Grandfather : Henry Francis Okines My Gt Gt Grandfather was Francis Okines ( Born in the Queens bench prison in London) My Gt Gt Gt grandfather : Francis Okines.
I have most the Okines wills known to exist, a complete transcription of all the civil registration events (Births marriages and deaths) since records began. I have assembled most of the families by the mothers maiden name.
If there is anything you want please let me know. With kind regards....Gerry
