Helping people locate friends or family they’ve lost contact with

On my maternal side my great grandfather James Henry Freemantle Treacher ( 1847 - 1917 ) had a second marriage in 1902 to Amelia Florence Fanny Elkins.

Amelia was one of six daughters born to Sarah and Adolphus Felix Elkins and lived during the second half of the 1800s at Mud Cottage, Felicia Park, Hardway, Gosport.

Three of Amelia’s sisters ie Aurora Felicia Minnie Elkins (b 1867 ) Annie Constance Lily Elkins ( b1869 ) and Augusta Frances Edith Elkins ( b1873 ) married John Hayward in 1890, Charles George Lawson in 1892 and James Edward Wright in 1906 respectively and I would love to hear from any of their descendants who perhaps would give me later information and also share information that I have gathered.

The Elkins were an interesting family with notable local history to the Hardway area of Gosport.

KIRBY, LEE: I am looking to get back in touch with my brother Lee.

I did not know I had a brother until five years ago. After meeting for the first time we drifted apart. Lee, who is now in his late 20s or early 30s and who, when I knew him, lived in either West Leigh or Leigh Park.

Our father is called David.
