Gypsies in the RADCLIFFE family?

Hello everyone! My aunty has told me that her grandmother used to often talk about the gypsies in the Radcliffe family. I am trying to find any further information to confirm this!
Her grandmother was Amelia Radcliffe (nee Bray) who married William Radcliffe in 1892.
It does appear that the Radcliffe's lived very close to where the Welsh Romany gypsies dwelled so it may be possible that some connections were made.
I would love to hear from anyone who might have any information that might help or have heard something similar! Blessings..

Robert GEDDIS and Jane CARTER, Christchurch NZ

Hello. I am tracing the family history of Robert Geddis and Jane Carter. They married in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1865. Their last born, a daughter named Mabel Jane is my g-g-grandmother. Robert and Jane were born just before the great famine in Ireland 1845-1850 in County Down and County Armagh, respectively.
Am still not sure if they met before or during emigration. Any info would be most appreciated! Blessings..

Seeking info or photo of Victor Forsythe Wilson Cobcroft

Hello everyone! I am hoping to acquire a photo of Victor Forsythe Wilson Cobcroft. He is my grandfather.
My mother has never seen a picture of her father as he disappeared soon after her birth in 1933. She is 81 years old now and it is her greatest wish to see a picture of him. We have found out that he started a family with another woman c1934 and had a further five children. He died of a cerebral haemorrhage in 1943 resulting from a head injury that occurred in 1937. It was bittersweet but nice to know that my mum was at least listed as one of his children on his death certificate.
Any information relating to Victor Forsythe Wilson Cobcroft or even his sisters, Francis Mabel Nina Parry/Croke (nee Cobcroft) and Beryl Facey (nee Cobcroft) would also be greatly appreciated!
Blessings, Tarni
