Hi I have sent you two messages but you don't seem to have received them this is what I have just researched so far
Hi Here is a brief summery of the families
Henry married Florence Mabel Allen in 1909 Hastings and on the 1911 census they were living at 4 Cross Street St Leonards on Sea, Hastings. He was a Labour, house builder one daughter Mabel. On his tree it seams thye had 6 daughters and 1 son no info as they are private but I can research them for you.
Nothing on Jack after 1901 but can research more if needed
Caroline was a chambermaid working in a Hotel in Hastings in 1911
1911 Frederick,Emma Robertha, Charles Septimus and Ethel Margaret were with mum and dad Edward and Emma Edward was a coach painter and they were living 15 Market Passage St Leonards on sea .
Frederick William married Edith M Todd 1926 in Hastings and he died in 1964 in Hastings. Hope this fills in some gaps I leave near Hastings so if you need any research done please let me know.

THANK YOU,just received your message today.
Some of this I had found. I found Henrys marriage but i didn't know he had any children.
My grandfather James(b1887) came out to australia in 1912 aged 24 & as far as i know didn't have any further contact with his family.Iam the only family of james still alive.It would be lovely to find any families of his siblings.It seems such a shame, after such a big family, not to have contact with anyone.
Iam new to computers & being in australia i find it a little difficult.I am still trying but i would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you so much for your help, you have been so kind but i owe you an appology.You see i have just received an email from you thru What has happened, a few years ago i went on Ancestory &put the imformation i knew on there hoping someone would see it but i had no luck so i didn't renew my subscription. Then a few weeks ago a friend told me about Familytreecircles, so i thought i would give it a try,but the only thing i did wrong is i used a different name, i didnt realise it would cause a problem. the site you found is my old site. I must appologise to you for this. I have had a lot of luck reserching all the other sides of my family but the SHAW side i keep hitting a brick wall that is why i would appreciate any help!
