Looking for Gibson of Nottingham
I am new to this site which I found during research into my father's family tree.
I am hoping that I will be able to make some headway through the group. I will be more than happy to help anyone with their research if I can. My father was born in the Meadows area of Nottingham, but it appears that his great grandfather was born in Kirk Langley, Derby. A branch of the family moved up to Skircoats in Yorkshire and were school teachers.
I am struggling to find evidence of my great grandfather visiting Canada whilst working for Kiddier Brothers who were makers of hosiery. My great grandfather Was a hosiery machine builder.
Also my grandfather Frank Gibson had a sister Irene and two brothers. I can find no trace of Arthur, whom we are told married and had a son. He was thought to have been in the army at some time also.
Any information would be greatly appreciated and I look forward to digging my way back to see where we originated from!
