Just wondering if your g-grandfather Thomas James was the same as our James. Apparently he was a butcher, and married to May (or Ann) which could have been an abbreviation of Hannah. James was born in Woolsthorpe. One of his sons, Thomas, came to Australia, and was our g-g-father.

My name is Brenda Blaikie; I am Annie Elizabeth Robinson's Granddaughter (New Zealand). I have been searching for information on Annie Elizabeth Robinson's father Thomas James Robinson (My Great Grandfather).

Thomas James Robinson and Christopher Robinson were aboard the GY 934 Balgownie (official number 115586) when it went missing September 1919. Thomas James Robinson and Christopher Robinson were announced dead on 29 September 1919. I feel that it is very sad that they both died at sea and would like to find out what actually happened to them. Where they blown up by a mine? As many of the ships requisitioned during World War One were used in mine sweeping exercises.

Both Thomas James Robinson and Christopher Robinson are on the Commonwealth War Graves website http://www.cwgc.org/.

My Father Christopher Blaikie (named after his Uncle Christopher) has just visited Grimsby and went to the church the Robinson's belonged to. Isn't it such small world.

Please let me know how I can help in your search.

My email address is lee_johnston@paradise.net.nz please contact me directly.

Thank you

Brenda Blaikie
