|Comments:||hi im trying to trace my frater family tree my mum told me that her dad george oliver frater was from romany gypsie desscent so im not getting very far any help would be grateful i was born in islington and that is where most of the fraters came from thanks|
|Comments:||What a interesting site you have! I happened along it whilst trying to find any information on my great grandfather Walter Thomas. The Beynon family name seems to pop in all the time although I have never yet found any concrete information.
The only thing that maybe is a long shot is the marriage between Margaret Beynon 1832 kidwelly to John Thomas on the 7th November 1851.
Where there any children from this marriage?
Thanks and if you could help it would be great. ( No one in the family knows anything about my grandfathers history as he would never talk about his family/parents)
|Comments:||I only went on this site after a search for my family name brought it up on google. But I can`t find a ref. to Chedgey now.
It looks an interesting site, though.
|Comments:||you say your related to Obadiah Lockyer & Jane Bush

could you please explain where and how you will in thanks
|Comments:||I'm researching my family tree. My dad was Leslie Frater and my mother was Joyce Dixon both of Seaham. Any help would be appreciated.|

|Comments:||Further to previous, UK Census 1891 shows the following at 77 Radstock Rd, Midsomer Norton:
Thomas Gay (Head) 39
Samuel (Son) 11
Thomas (Son) 9
After they moved to 29 Radstock Rd, #77 was then inhabited by Thomas and Louisa Gay, and family (see UK Census 1901 and 1911).
The lineage of these two different Thomas Gay's is a bit tricky to unravel, I am currently researching.
|Name:||Phil Gray (nee Gay)|
You have done some incredible, fantastic research, but I think there are some errors regarding parts of the lineage of the family Gay from Midsomer Norton. The records are confusing as there were two families (both headed by Thomas Gay, and only 1 year age difference between them!).
To confuse things further, they both lived in Radstock St, and indeed the second family moved into the house of the first family when they moved further down the road. (UK Census of 1881, 1891, 1901)
The result is that I think you have attributed incorrect parentage to some of the family members. I am a direct descendent of Walter Thomas Gay (incorrectly recorded as Walter V Gay in an early census, but corrected subsequently) son of Thomas Gay and Louisa Gay (nee Viney).
Walter Thomas Gay migrated to Australia, circa 1910, with his wife Florence (nee Sargant). It is not known if she accompanied him on initial voyage or subsequently.
Phil Gray (was Gay, but changed by Deed Poll for obvious reasons)
I am still working through this dilema - you can contact me via my website should you wish further info.

|Comments:||I am the youngest child of John Alexander Hay Frater and Iris Rose Foley who were married in 1942 in Bowral NSW Australia. My father often used to tell me of our Scottish ancestry and his family had a property in Narrabri,when he was a boy, called after the place in Scotland that his ancestors came from called "Sheffeld Hills". He was very proud of belonging to the "Hay" clan, and told me he had traced our family tree back to the times of the Norman invasion to the "De La Hay" family in France. But sadly, as both my parents are now dead, I don't have any details, only my recollections of what he told me.|

Sarah Selway b. 1849 Clandown had an illigitamate son whilst working in Clerkenwell in london as a domestic servant. She called this son Samuel Selway but he was raised by his grandparents who changed his name to Joseph - thus on the 1871 census and the 1881 census John Selway and Eliza have a grandson by the name of Joseph. He is my husbands great grandfather.

|Comments:||I am viewing this information as I sit in my office in Wainwright Alberta Canada. We have an auction business and I am preparing some catalogue information from consignments. We were told that a chest of drawers that is in this sale, had been given to a Mr. & Mrs. Frater of Scotland as a wedding present from poet Robbie Burns. I noticed your ancestor John Frater was born about the same time as Burns and wondered if by some miracle this may be the recipient of the gift! The consignor's last name is Young and his story is that the Fraters were his great? or great-great? grandparents. Who knows? I see the Young connection for descendants ends with women, so that doesn't help me. Just a shot in the dark. Congrats to you for your investigation into your roots. Well done!|

I lived in Penygraig until I moved to Canada in 1968. Most of my family were coal miner's, the Rhondda and the coal remain in my blood even though "I" was never a miner. I cannot imagine the Rhondda without coal! In my younger days we used the coal tip as a playground and after WW-2 my Granmother would give us a bag to bring back bits of coal from the tip because we were a poor family and times where hard.

what a wealth of information. I just did a Google search on Julia Frater- producer of 'A Place in France' being shown on ABC T.V. here in Australia at present.
I saw listed a web site about Frater marriages in Australia- only to be able to see my grandfather and grandmother's details. together with grandfathers brothers and sister, including those killed in World War I. It was a thrill to see my parents Gordon Kachel and Mary Frater listed- though I could not get it to link with their death register. I will spend a little more time looking over the details at a later date-
cheers- a great job !

|Comments:||Greetings from Sydney Australia
My husband is descended from William Short and Mary Ann Marshall born c1799 in Scotland. Mary Ann and William married in Harborne near Birmingham in 1818. Can anyone tell me if Mary Ann Marshall was born in Edinburgh Castle? My husband's great grandfather was their eldest son, Thomas who married Emily Allbutt about 1846. Thomas and Emily kept pubs around Birmingham. Their eldest son Alfred Joseph Short was my husband's grandfather and Elsie May Short his mother who died in 1988 aged 99. Alfred had a tinning business in Birmingham and acted in and produced amateur theatrical shows. He went to Belgium with one of his shows and fell off his bicycle while riding a tight rope. He married Agnes Emily White and had 9 children. He died in 1911 aged 65.
Brilliant site!!! George Bradley (b.abt 1831) & Emma Short are my Great Great Grandparents. Francis (Frank) Green & Emma Bradley are my Great Grandparents.
I was casually double checking out a few census details, when I did a google search on "Upper Ryland Road" after finding George Bradley living there in 1901 ….. and I came across this goldmine of information.
I was searching for "Upper Ryland Road" looking for inspiration. I had always believed George Bradley and Emma had disappeared after the 1871 Census and I couldn’t account for it, but after a search this afternoon of the 1901 census I found George (same name, occupation, birth date & place) had returned in 1901 ….. but with a different spouse – Amelia. I love a challenge, but thought that this may end up being one of those unanswered questions that nags away at you for years.
I can’t believe it … 10 minutes later and I found your site which explains it all - emigration to Australia, a mistress and then a return to Britain. That and a big falling-out in the Green family, a new generation of Shorts (William), a new spouse (Mary), and a new generation of Bradleys (Taplin) to checkout … fantastic. Your site also ties up a few other loose ends (and opens other questions) into the bargain.
Thanks for including the extra information, notes, letters, and even photo’s – absolutely brilliant. All this after only 30 minutes looking – I’m sure there’s a lot more to find. Your site will keep me going for ages, and will make a pleasant change to the usual documentation searches.
The rest of today is now on hold whilst I read everything I can about the Bradley’s, Green’s & Short’s. I’m sure it will take me a lot longer than one evening, and a lot less time than it took for you to research and write – your effort has certainly helped me out, and is very much appreciated.
I haven’t had a chance to read your complete notes yet, so you may already be aware, but if not, check out the 1901 Census for George Bradley (aged 69) and Amelia Bradley (aged 54) living at “Upper Ryland Road” Birmingham. It looks as though this may be George and his mistress Amelia, in which case this proves Amelia did return from Australia, as you believed.
Thanks for a great site.

|Comments:||This is a most impressive site, which I found through a search engine.
Although I cannot prove it for sure yet, I believe I may be a direct descendant of Thomas ALLISON, shown in the site as a brother to Dorothy ALLISON, who married a FRATER. If it could be confirmed that this is the same Thomas ALLISON as married Katharine GUY at Lanchester in October 1738, and is buried there, then the connection is proven.
Despite years of research, yours is the first reference I have found to (some of the) ALLISONS deriving their name from ELIESON (might that be ELISON?). There seem to be grounds for thinking that ELIESON is a Nordic name and that it was consciously changed to ALLISON to complete the naturalisation process, following earlierimmigration to the North East. Is there any basis for this theory, as far as you know?
Congratuations, once again!
I have visited the site a few times for info and would like to add my own family details.

|Comments:||I came across this site while searching for anything on my gt gt gt grandfather George Bradbury. I got very excited at first thinking it may have been him but it's not but there may be some connection (one can only hope). My George Bradbury was born approx 1813 in England. He was a widower when he married my gt gt grandmother Martha Shoesmith in 1843. They came to Australia in 1848. There children were Squire b 1846 England, Smith b in Eng d 1848 on the ship to Australia,Clara b 1849, James b & d 1852, Elizabeth b 1853, James 2 b 1855 & Smith 2 (my gt grandfather) b 1860. I noticed that you also had a Clara in your names so perhaps (once again I can only hope) there is a connection. George's occupation on his wedding cert was a spinner (worked in a mill i think). His father's name was John (a farmer). George and Martha lived in Richmond Victoria.
Well, what do you think, could there possibly be a link.

|Comments:|| Hi, Sure did like your web page.
My grandfather was John Galloway from Knoxville, Tenn. USA
His father was George Galloway . He was born in Virginia, but raised in Tenn. USA. George's father was Nathan or Nathanial Galloway born in Tenn., USA about 1848 . Have no other info about my Galloway family. Do not know who they came from. Was only told they were Scottish. Would like to find out where they came from in Scottland. And the family history.
Thanks, Nalene Galloway Hall.
PS Nathan Galloway is listed on the 1880 Census Records of Virginia, USA as Nathan Galway. But my grandfather spelled it as Galloway. Is there a differance.
|Comments:||Hello. What a great site! I am a descendant of Marion HAY who, according to my research, was a sister of Penelope HAY who married Alexander FRATER. For some reason, Marion is not recorded on the OPR / IGI. There are some discrepancies between my information and that on the My Forefathers website about the origins of Peter HAY and Mary MITCHELL of Kirkcudbright. It is slightly possible that there may have been another Peter HAY / Mary MITCHELL marriage in Kirkcudbright about the same time or maybe I have the wrong parents for Peter, but it does seem rather unlikely in such a small town. I would be very pleased to hear from any descendants of Penelope HAY and Alexander FRATER who married in Kirkcudbright in 1850.|

Since Somerset is just a hop skip and a jump from Poole, we are wondering about the possibility of a connection. We have hit the proverbial roadblock with William and Margaret. We would be grateful for anything you might be able to do to assist us with our conundrum!!!|
|Comments:||After a long and seemingly fruitless search for my son Martin's ancestors I have at last been rewarded thanks to your site.
My wife, Irene Daniel (nee Forster) died on 5th May 1981, died when Martin was two and a half. Her mother Margaret Richardson Forster (nee Frater) was I discover, from your site, born in the September quarter 1904. I knew that she was born in Duddo, Northumberland. This is in the Glendale area as your records state. For your records she was married to George Forster. They had 2 children, Mary and my wife, Irene. Irene was born on 23rd July 1956. Mary was about 20 years older than her.
Many thanks for your help.
Roger M Daniel

|Comments:||Greetings from Wisconsin! Nice web site :)|
|Name:||Viki Callahan-Wallace (Frater Grand-daughter)|
Am just about to browse through your site. I am Sarah Mcbroom Frater's grand-daughter. I will e-mail you soon to give you more information on our branch. It's pretty big. I am one of six children, parents are Jim Wallace (alive) in Western Australia, he is Sarah McBroom Fraters son. He married my mum, Phyllis nee-Holloway. They split up in about 1963/64 and in 1974ish, mum married Bill Frater, our then uncle, nephew to Aunt Sadie (my wee-nana, Sarah McBroom Frater). Bill was also Adam Frater's only son. Wee-nana brought Bill Frater up as her own.
Will look through your site later after I've fed my three boys, Isaac, Jordan and Eddie. My husband is John Callahan, Irish descent. We live in Titahi Bay, Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand.
I have come across heaps of old brown and white photos of some ancestors. Two men are in Army Uniforms, standing either side of Aunt Liz. There is also a young woman in an army Uniform as well, don't know who she is. I have a photo of (I think Great-grand-dad William Frater, standing next to his wife Jane Halbert Stewart, and she's holding a baby, possibly their first born who would be William Frater!! Would that be your Dad?
Anyway, talk soon.
Viki (sister of Stephen, Billy, Susan, Lisa and Paul)
Paul is Mum and Bill Frater's son. The rest of us are Jim Wallace's children. Jim is still alive and kicking in Western Australia. He's 73, re-married with a 30 year old girl. We have seen him twice since mum abd Bill/Dad died.

|Comments:||I enjoyed your website. Keep up the good work.
|Comments:||I had a great grandmother named Cornelia Galloway Mull (Galloway was her maiden name) who died in Little Rock, Arkansas about 1887-1889 as far as I can determine. She left six children, of which my grandmother, Annie Laura Mull, was the oldest. They were all sent to California to be farmed out to relatives. I haven't been able to find out anything else about Cornelia. Her husband was Martin Mull.|
Keep it up!
