Hi Maurice, I have just read your post re. Godfrey Rampling but I fear that it is not 'your' James Rampling who is Godfrey's father! My own research together with family anectdotal evidence tells me a different story I am afraid.
My mother Kathleen Rampling was a 1st cousin of Godfrey Rampling (of Berlin Olympics fame), his brother Kenneth and sister Barbara. Godfrey's father Horace and my mother's father Stanley were brothers. Their father was James Bacon Rampling, born in 1854 in Stanway, Colchester, Essex and married to Alice Johnson from Redlingfield in Suffolk. James Bacon Rampling is my great grandfather.
I am sorry to have to question your own research but I felt that i must try to put the matter straight.
