William Bower
I am researching my grandparents - William Bower and Jessie Ellen (nee Topp). My grandfather had a jewellers shop at 24 High Street Chesham. Family tales abound about them previously owning/leasing/managing a pub at Chesham Bois - "The Unicorn". I can't find any written evidence for this - but my father (died last year) helped getting the beer barrels from the cellar when he was engaged to my mother Pauline Bower - so all a bit confusing! Would be grateful for any information
John Williams b.1811 had son William Williams who married Elizabeth Stacey b.1836 Chesham. They married in Dec.1858 in Brentford Nr Ealing Middlesex. I am descended from Ellen Stacey b.1834 who married Thomas Crane b.1833 and then moved to Singleton, Sussex by 1862. Ann Stacey another sister married Frederick Hawkes. Lydia Stacey b.1840 m. Christopher Wilkins in Amersham.
red mail Nash family of Chesham
Does anyone have details on the Nash family of Chesham area? Edia Nash married Thomas Meadom 23/5/1793 at St Mary's, Chesham. These were my gt gt gt grandparents. Have some information on the Meadoms, but the Nash connection to Edia escapes me. Their daughter Lydia was part of a large family, many of whom have Antipodean descendants. Lydia married James Child. There seemed to be a large number of unmarried Nashes in Chesham in the early 19th century, but they have not connected up yet.
I am researching my family on my fathers side some brothers in the sills family owned a bootmakers in chesham either the early 1900s or late 1800s hence the alleway behind boots chemist in chesham called sills yard. Annie sills had 4 sons called albert, joe,chris and frank she may have had more children not sure. frank was born after she married mr gates so he was frank gates. chris and albert were born before her marriage to mr gates but for some unknown reason albert had his surname changed to gates. Not sure when joe was born think he was born joe gates. I have a picture of chris sills with his stepbrother albert not sure of the date it was though. I know albert was born in 1879 and died in 1959 and is buried in winslow. Any information would be much appreciated thank you.

Please, can anybody help me? I am trying to find information on my GG Grandfather, Seabrook Young who was born in Chesham, Berks around 1803. His family were dissenters, so were not registered with the Church of England. I know he had at least one child, my G Grandfather, John Young b. 1829 in Marylebone, Seabrook having married Mary Ann North in 1823 in St Marylebone Parish Church, but no baptisms show after that date. In 1839 after his first wife's death, he remarried Susannah Hay and on the certificate it shows his father as John Young, tailor (deceased). I can track Seabrook on the 1861 census living at 31 Circus Street, Bryanston Square Ward, Marylebone with his 2nd wife and working as a Wood Sawyer. I have confirmed his name and work from his son John's marriage certificate, but I have nothing more about him and can find no trace of him apart from that one census.
