My maternal grandfather Sidney Herbert Amyes was born in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, in 1857 and died in Chistchurch in 1935. Is he possibly a younger brother of Robert Henry? His father was Edmund Amyes (1811-1900) and his mother's name was possibly Elizabeth, surname not known. Do you have any further information on this family?
