red mail Redding family in Risca
Thomas Redding moved to Graham Gardens (now Framfield Rd, Hanwell) around 1907. Married to (?) who gave birth to my nan (possibly at sea) in 1900 - Gertrude Helena Redding. Who in 1919 married my grandfather, Albert Edwin Frederick Ball (Fred) who was living with his mum at 46 Northfield Rd, West Ealing. The father was John Ball, although he is not mentioned in the 1914 Kelly's directory, (only Mrs Ball as head of house). Mrs Ball was Emily Brown (b. 1869 (Abington oxon.) & m. Oct 1891) At the time of their marriage they were living at 2 Church Lane Ealing. Great grandad's father was also John Ball, who was possibly married to Elizabeth. And there the story goes cold. The Risca connection is that my dad was evacuated to Risca during the war and stayed with an Aunt. Are there any Redding family members still in the area? Any help would obviously be appreciated
