Briscoe's (General)

Hi all - new to this site. What a fantastic site it is.

My family dates back to the Forest of Dean. My great grandfather (paternal) is William Briscoe (registered as William Thomas at birth). His mother was Elizabeth Sophia Mountjoy Thomas and as far as we can gather his father was William Briscoe (b1825) from Kilkenny. We have done a lot of research and also obtained many certificates.

I am just wondering if anyone has any new information other than what is already on here. In particular I am surprised that there does not appear to be any photos of any of them. As many of them were forest keepers I would have thought that more photos would be available. Is there anyone out there who has any photos of this family?

Also my great grandfather William moved in with Frederick Meek after his parents died and I am wondering what became of Frederick and Elizabeth? Did they move away as I can not find any records for their deaths in the Forest area.

Any info would be gratefully received.
