red mail Woods family Gorleston/Yarmouth
Hi, I'm looking for further information please on this family. My great great grandfather was Hexfield Woods born 1832 and died 1913, he married Rebecca Sadler, she was born 1835 and died 1924 both of them where from Gorleston. Their second youngest child was Maxfield Woods born 1876 in Church lane, Gorleston he is my great grandfather and he married Florence Edith woods who was born in 1901 in Camden town, Great Yarmouth. Their eldest son was Victor Mack Woods born 1921 in Bulls Lane, Gorleston. Maxfield died in 1940 and it seems that around this time that Florence moved with her son's and daughter to London. I think they lost touch with a large part of the family after this time due to the war and moving away. I would be very grateful for any further information or indeed would welcome contact from any relatives, I have a feeling there must still be some family in the area. Many many thanks, Heather
