Who was Lily Miles? What happened to her and to Clarence? JOHN MILES was born in March in Cambridgeshire in about 1837 but I have found no Birth Information. His wife JOAN nee RIDLEY came from Burton-in Kendal, Westmoreland. They must have been married about 1868 maybe in York where their first son, John Herbert Miles, was born in 1869. JOHN HERBERT MILES had changed his name by the time he got married to LOUISE SARAH WRIGHT in Bedford, in 1893, to JOHN HERBERT EMMANNUEL CHICHESTER-MILES, Why did he do this? John Miles moved from York to Wolverton, Buckinghamshire, in about 1877 and lived there with all the family, about 12 children eventually, until after the 1891 census when he must have moved to Leicester. All the places he lived seem to have been large railway centres but I don't think he worked for the railways. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
