I believe that I may have had a GG Aunt named Rosina A SANKEY, who married George Frederick Albert LATHAM in 1888. My great grandfather, Samuel Sankey, on his 1918 return from West Africa where he was both in the army and working on the railways gave his intended UK destination as Llanymynech and I see from probate records that that is where George and Rosina lived (Arddleen, Llandrinio to be precise). I am guessing Samuel was going to visit his sister. The fact that intrigues me is that although he was born Samuel Sankey, from at least 1916 (the year of GFA Latham´s death) he is known as Samuel Latham Sankey. Why would he have adopted the name? I believe there are still Lathams in Llanymynech but don´t know whether they are related, or how to contact them in order to ask (I live in Spain). Gareth
