Hi, my name is Jane Bentley, nee shillabeer. My father`s name was Charles Frederick Shillabeer. He had several brothers and sisters, all living in the south of England. Off hand I can remember Henry, Dick, Arthur,Mabel(sis)Joe and gwen. I think there were also twin boys, but they might have died very young. My Grandfather was Joseph Shillabeer. He was on the Queens (Mary and Elizabeth) as a chef, I think perhaps pastry. I know he had dealings with the Emporer of Ethiopia.
My Dad was in the Navy during the second World War,or the branch called the fleet air arm. He served on Aircraft Carriers. Dad died about 10 years ago. His widow, My Mum lives near me in Scotland UK. I hope this information might help in building up a tree
