trying to trace data on my grandfather James John Vanner
I know that he was born in Hoxton and was the son of a cabinet maker. Date of birth was somewhere around 1880. He worked for Minimax in Feltham. He married twice. His first wife died leaving a son. He remarried to my grandmother Edith Burr, who bore him one daughter, my mother. I'd love to find out more about his antecedents. I believe the family were of Huguenot stock who settled in London when they were being persecuted by the French.
