red mail Andrew Mackie Reid & Emmie Green
Hi, my ancestors - Andrew Mackie Reid & his wife Emmie Green - lived and died in Leamington Spa. They lived at 4 Hewitt's Building on Oxford Row. Emmie died in 1954, and Andrew died in 1966. Andrew was a Scotsman, from Camelon. Their daughter, Sheila M Reid, was born in 1928 and married Joseph Brind. They stayed in the area - maybe Warwick - and had 3 daughters; Janice Brind b. 1950, Carole Brind b. 1955 & Margaret Brind in 1967. I believe these three women are all still alive. Any information on any members of the Reid, Green, or Brind families would be wonderful. I am in Australia. Thank you for reading. Marianne

My great-grandfather John Parsons (married to Elizabeth Harvey of West Firle) lived in Warwick and Leamington Spa.
