by Jim Patterson, Wednesday, September 28, 2005, 11:31 (5186 days ago)

This is a re post as I have recently changed my e mail address.
I am researching any Dobbs, Townsend, Carter, James, Brain, Hempstalk and Lear ancestors from Lydbrook, Coleford, Whitecroft,Bream and Ross on Why areas, many were coalminers but my Great Grand father was the Lydbrook Postman around 1900 +

If you are interested in connecting with any of the family names noted above please e mail so we can compare notes..

I have a James Dobbs born abt 1802 married to Elizabeth Addis at Tainton 12.6.1828 in my Family Tree. The only reason he is in my tree is that he is "connected", because I follow siblings and parents of spouses.

Elizabeth Addis's sister Susannah Knight Addis, daughter of Jonathon Addis & Ann Wintle married George Marfell 1.5.1826 at Hope Mansell.

Do you think this is the same James Dobbs ?

Among the other 26 Dobbs in my Family Tree,I also have a Henry Dobbs 1840 who married Elizabeth Marfell 27.2.1868, he was the son of Joseph Dobbs - brother of Joseph 1834 on this posting perhaps ?

Henry DOBBS 1840 Lane End

by jimashton @, Wednesday, July 02, 2008, 02:13 (4179 days ago) @ slowhands

Thanks Slowhands

Must be a different Henry.

Elizabeth Marfell born 1833 daughter of Edward Marfell & Jane Susannah Cummins, definitely married Henry Dobbs 27.2.1868, St Martins, Worcester - I have the marriage certificate. Henry a miller was shown as the son of Joseph Dobbs Miller.

I "assumed", it seems now wrongly, that there was a second marriage owing to the 1871 Census where Elizabeth (Dobbs) was with her father, plus an Elizabeth Dobbs born 1869. The 1881 Census for Henry Dobbs & Emma - as shown by you above, also included an Elizabeth born 1869.


1871 Census Mitcheldean
Edward Marfell 64 Labourer Mitcheldean
Jane wife 67 Dymock
Elizabeth Dobbs visitor marr 36 Mitcheldean
Jemima dtr UM 34 Aston Ingham
William grandson 12 Mitcheldean
Elizabeth Dobbs visitor 18 mths East Dean
John James UM 39 lodger

It is possible that father Joseph on the marriage certificate could be known as John - it happens. However, I have now deleted the second marriage and all children except Elizabeth 1869 from my Family Tree.

by Angela McKee, Sunday, February 14, 2010, 03:10 (3587 days ago) @ slowhands

Hi, I'm trying to see where Henry Dobbs fits into my tree. I have a family a generation back from Henry; William b.1790, Thomas b.1792, Samuel b. 1796, Jane b. 1798 and John b.1807. Is this John the father of Henry? Or do you think we two completely different Dobbs families? I have research on the eldest line, William.
Thank you

Hi Pearl,

If you're still looking, I think I can help a lot

William (1873-1929 at English Bicknor (1911-1929) was my greatgrandfather. I've done some family history which takes us back to 1789 (thanks to 1911 census clues)

William had children Charles Bill Reginald Ronald (my grandad) Edith etc

I was trying to identify a Pearl who married a carter, so I think that might be you.

do get in touch: [Deleted]

best wishes,

Ἀριστοτέλης A Gloster Boy in the Forest of Dean ><((((*>

Mary TOWNSEND, Alfred PRICE - Lydbrook 1920's / Lydney

by slowhands, proud of his ancient Dean Forest roots, Saturday, January 08, 2011, 17:44 (3258 days ago) @ Jim Patterson

My name is Jim Patterson and today I live on the far west coast of Canada on Vancouver Island where I emigrated after leaving the military in the late 1970s.

My grandparents were Forest of Dean folk through and through and for many generations, but due to hard times during the dirty 1930s were forced to leave the Forest searching for work. However some of my grandparent’s siblings and extended family did stay or eventually return home to what they knew and loved, but my side mostly spread out all over the globe it seems.

About 11 years ago I became physically disabled and due to my son then doing a school assignment in which I was asked to produce a family tree this process got me digging up many of my ancestors from all over the world.

At this time I also mailed out some 1,300 letters to all known kin in the Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire areas mostly to keep my mind active as I struggled to heal. This process worked for the most part but I became obsessed in uncovering where my most direct lines ended up: ie Townsend, Dobbs, Lear, Carter and my great aunt Mary Price’s descendants in the Lydney area.

From family stories Mary Price of Lydney (née Mary Ann Towns­end) was a well known medium and card reader in her day, albeit husband Alf Price strongly disapproved of folk visiting his home getting readings it was said.

Alfred William Price born in 1896 Gloucestershire, and wife Mary, born in 1898 in Bargoed, Monmouthshire, had the following children: George Price, who became a publican/landlord and had the Bridge Inn in Cinderford, the 21 Club in Cheltenham and the Red Hart in Awre; brother Grenville Price, was into auto mechanics we heard; Brian Price, who was the Lydney Cinema projectionist in his day, and sister Marjorie Cynthia Price, we believe moved to Poole in Dorset after marriage?

If any family or Foresters can help in connecting me with my Price family all guidance would be greatly appreciated.

In searching your Review online today I was saddened to read a relative, ex of Yorkley, Desmond Dobbs passed away very recently. To the family, please accept my condolences.

– Jim Patterson

I CONTACTED you last about October 2010 seeking help in finding lost family for a family history project I have been doing and your readers came up trumps and connected me with my first cousins at Brockhollands. I have since had many conversations with my cousins which has led me back to you once again.

I had heard family tales of but had never met or communicated with my cousins until your readers solved our 50 plus year-old mystery for which we are all so very grateful.

My new cousins, the Price family, contained many well known Forest of Dean folk and a hero among them who helped by retrieving victims during the aftermath of the Severn Bridge explosion and fire.

Brian Price, retired river inspector of Lydney is our family hero and also one of the brothers who hold or held water Skiing records running up and down the Severn and other places. Thanks to one and all who read the story and passed along the story eventually connecting me to long lost kin.

With the positive experience noted above I am hoping you will help me one more time and publish the story about one other long lost cousin.

I am hoping readers can help me connect or find out what happened to my great aunt’s son.

Graham Arthur Harper was born at 1 Ashford Road, Redhill, near Bristol, and his parents were Blodwyn Elsie Harper (nee Townsend) who normally lived in Lydbrook but was with her sister for the birth at address above.

Graham’s father was Arthur E Harper seemingly a Lydbrook or Forest man. I am told that Arthur and Blodwyn were married in about 1933, probably at Lydbrook Baptist Church but the marriage was registered at Monmouth in Sept 1933. Monmouth being the closest registration office in the day.

Sadly the day little Graham Arthur Harper was born his mum passed away due to complications with the birth. As the father was away working at the time we understand Graham was raised for his first two years of life by Blodwyn’s sister Morfydd Eastham (nee Townsend) at the address supplied above.

When Graham’s father had re-married he then took over responsibility for his son with his new wife Gladys and they took Graham back to Lydbrook which is where they then lived and the last time we ever heard from them sadly.

From 1947-8 to 2011 our family have enquired by letter and telephoned many folk trying to trace Graham Arthur Harper but to this day with no luck.

I called many Harpers in the Gloucestershire area and other areas of the UK where I found a Graham or Arthur Harper over the last month or so as well but have drawn a blank so as a last ditch hope I am writing to the kind folk of my native homeland for help once again.

If you know anything about the above family, the Townsends, Price, Dobbs, Hempstalk or Lewis please make contact so I can share family history and stories with you for mutual benefit.

– Jim Patterson

Hey Slowhands, great to hear from you mate and many thanks for helping out as always:-)

Hope you are happy and well buddie?

I have had two other responses to my recent letter to the editor in the Review and one was from the Editor of the Papers friend and the other was Graham Harpers cousin who is trying to put us in touch as I type this.. Exciting this all is when we reconnect family after being apart for so many years and in this case the mystery man did not know he had a different mother until his step Mum passed away so a very emotional time prior to us all reconnecting hey:-)

Between you, the FOD site and the Review you have all made many folks feel part of a bigger picture of life and supplied them with a Family for which we will all be forever grateful!!!

The Possible you included is a very Probable mate, as Grahams 2 wife was indeed a Gill I now know:-)

Cheers Slowhands
