Hi, I have quite an extensive list of AVERY and HIRST names in my database. My mother was a HIRST and I have several original photos of both lines. The Avery side of the Hirst family go back to about late 1800's. My grandfather Albert Edwin HIRST married Grace Antonia HARRIS and it it is this side of my family tree that I have the most information on. Sidney Hirst is a direct ancestor of mine. WARNING, I have a LOT of info on this line. Just let me know what you need to fill in your gaps and can you tell me if you have any direct links to these two families?

I have Alice Avery b 1878, Annie Avery b 1880 d 1965, Amelia Avery no issue, Norman Leslie Avery b circa 1886 d 1919, Winifred Avery 1899.
Norman married a Hilda B Moore no issue in 1911. I have a photo of Alice and perhaps other Avery photos in my database.
