Family tree research for my paternal great - great grandfather and great-great grandmother, Mary Ellen Baker- married to - Archer Elijah Grimsey

Query by AlisonParrack

My grandfather,( whom i never met, due to his death during my father's childhood), was called Archer Elijah Grimsey, 1877-1940,died aged about 63, and his wife was Mary Ellen Baker,1893-1969 died aged 76. I would appreciated any information regarding the parents of my Grandfather Archer Elijah Grimsey, for whom i have hit a brick wall. There were several Grimsey families in Stoke by Nayland/Sudbury , but they were not necessarily related, who lived in Suffolk. My late grand father Archer Elijah Grimsey B 1877, was from Sudbury, Suffolk according to the 1911 census, but beyond that i cannot trace any information that accurately leads to his parents and family.PLEASE... does anyone have any more knowledge about him that they can share ?

and .....if possible, also :

My grandmother Mary Ellen Baker B 1893 was the daughter of Ellen Annie Baker born about 1862, but i cannot find any other information about her , or when Annie Baker died, or when Annie Baker married. She was married to Joseph Baker, born about 1861, for whom also i cannot find any other information. Mary Ellen Baker had two siblings as far as I deduced from the 1911 census, these were Albert John Baker 1898 and Edward Victor Baker 1902. This is the only accurate information that i can supply regarding my late Grandmother Mary Ellen Baker B 1893, and i hope this will define who her grandparents were... and any uncles and aunts she may have had.

I am told by my mother that Mary Ellen Baker (Grandma Grimsey) was from Stoke By Nayland, and that Archer Elijah Grimsey her husband, was also from Stoke By Nayland. Both the parents of Mary Ellen Baker were also from Stoke By Nayland area,that is Annie Baker,and Joseph Baker, as already mentioned, but I do not know the maiden name of Annie Baker so cannot trace her mother and father or siblings, who would have been aunts and uncles to my grandmother, or find any further evidence of Joseph Baker's family, such as his parents or siblings.

I appreciate this is a tall order, but would be very grateful to any information that anyone could lead me to completing this family tree.

Thank you in anticipation,

Alison Parrack

I would appreciate any help in finding the relative details of this side of the family since my father passed away in 2005 and I am no longer able to source information for this side of the family.

Thank you very much..all this adds up and is filling the gaps in the family tree.
I am veray grateful for all your help because my father was the 11th child of 13..we were very young when his elder sibblings were memories are foggy even of those we met, it was the 60's and early 70's and then relatives began to pass over and there is lost the family history. My widowed mother will appreciate the information as nowadays being elderly..she focuses more on the past families than the present, and she lives in a confusion over the people's lives, so I am doing this for my own interest as to hand down to my children before its lost or never thought about by them and to hopefully bring my mum some clarity in her twilight.
Thank you very much.As for researching further back I will get all this detailed into my family tree and see where I'm going to continue. How far back is it possible to search generally..?
Thank you once again.
