red mail Langley
Our search is for information on William George Langley (b. 1911), through our research we have learnt a great deal about his mother Elizabeth Langley and her brothers and sisters and their children yet still cannot fill in the blanks with him. We know that he was born to an unmarried Elizabeth in May 1911 in Marylebone and that in the following years his mother married a Thomas Smith, had a daughter, moved to Australia and then had two more sons. We know William George was left in the UK, but who with is our main question. His uncle - Elizabeths eldest brother William Langley (married with three children) seemed the obvious choice. He was based in Willesden for many years, had his brothers and sisters regularly living with his family (according to the census's) although we have to way of proving this until the 1921 census is released. Any information about the Langleys in and around Willesden is hugely appreciated. Other Langleys include: Annie, Joseph, Mary, Hilda, Dorris, William Jr, Jack...

red mail Lonsdale & Peebles of Willesden
Rumour has it that somewhere down the line we come from Peebles. After more than a decade of searching, I have found a female family member married Henry PEEBLES in St Pancras in 1885. He was a shoemaker and came from Dereham in Norfolk. His father was James PEEBLES who was born in Neatishead, Norfolk about 1831. In 1881 Henry is living with his sister and brother-in-law in Brighton Sussex. The family eventually end up in Willesden/Kilburn area of London where they were shoe and bootmakers I’m thinking that perhaps one of this extended family had an illegitimate daughter. If anybody has any information on the family please contact me. The Lonsdale family originally comes from East Lancashire around the Burnley area.
