I think I am your cousin as Kate was my grandmother. My father was her youngest son, Brian.

Was your father Brian Marquis. If so, there were several cousins. I have done quite a lot of research on the Derigs and would be happy to share the information, if you're interested.
regards Christine.

I've been researching my husband's Derig family - Patrick Derig was his g/grandfather, his grandmother was Kate. It's a long time since you posted your request to Family Tree Circles so you may already have the info you need but I am happy to share any information I have.

I have not looked at this website for quite awhile. Nice to hear from you.

I have research that I can share also. Is your husband's name Simon?

My grandfather was Robert Derig his mother's maiden name was Frost. His mother married Thomas Enright and then later Patrick Derig.
Kind regards

Hi Christine, thanks for your reply and apologies for a late response.

My husband's name is Clem Cook. His grandmother Kate married Constantine Marquis (or Merkous) and they had 4 children, Joan (Clem's mother), Constantine, Elaine & Brian. Kate also had a child some years before she married Constantine.

Simon is Clem's cousin; he is Brian's son.

If you like I can send you Clem's side of the family tree.

Best wishes

Hi Jenny

That sounds very interesting, thank you.

If you would like any information or some photos which I have of: Kate's brothers, taken at Napier and one of Kate with my grandfather (Robert Derig, and their brother Jack Derig) also a group photo of the Derig's, Marquis's and other family members which was taken at a wedding, I can send you a copy via email.

Jean was the name of Kate's first child my mother Mavis Clarke,(nee Derig) with her brothers and sisters; Bill, Patricia, Bob and Joyce were their first cousins.

Kind regards
