Selmes Family

10th March 2015

Clare Martin:

Hi Lynne,

I really do not have a lot of information prior to Charles Selmes Laurence, only know that he was born January 31, 1886, in Hastings-Sussex-England (as shown on his birth record). He was married to a woman (last name Mitchell) and had at least 2 children, Joan Laurence (1920-1977), and Trevor Laurence (unconfirmed 1921-1989). Joan was married to a Mr MacKay who passed away, then married Dennis W Westoby (1920-2008) in 1972. After Charles' first wife (last name Mitchell) passed away, he married my grandmother, Florence Hilda Griffin (1909-1972)in 1942, and had my father Anthony Edwin Laurence in 1946. Charles Selmes Laurence died in 1969 in Kidderminster (where my father was born and they lived). And Hlida (as she went by) died in May 1972.... all this before I was born. My dad, Anthony Edwin Laurence and our family emigrated to Canada in 1981 and have been here since. Let me know if any of this might fit into what you know!

Thanks,

Clare

Hello, this may or may not be any relation, but it seems like somewhere my grandfather may fit into the relatives you have listed . He was Charles Selmes Laurence Born 1886. I don't know much about his family, and my father was a product of a later-in-life, second marriage for Charles.
