red mail Flack Family, Portsea Island
I am interested in finding out more about Frederick Henry Flack (often known as Henry) born 1843 in Cripplegate, London.Moved to Portsmouth. Married Louisa Annie Webb about 1877. I believe he was in the Navy for a time and am trying to find birth details of his 1st born twins - Christian Annie Charlotte and Frederick Henry John born about 1878-79. I can find no birth certificates and family rumour is that the twins were brought back to the UK as babies and were the result of a liaison(!) with a Spanish lady when he was stationed in Gibraltar. It would appear that his wife accepted the twins and brought them up as her own. Sadly the male twin died within a few months of his birth but Christian Annie Charlotte (latterly known as Kris) was my great grandmother. Any information would be gratefully received and help me break through a longstanding brick wall!
