My husband is David Gurnhill. He is the youngest of three children to George and Winifred Gurnhill. George and Winifred emigrated to Australia after WW2. George was born to Charles Benjamin Gurnhill and Ada Gurnhill (nee Gee) of Nottingham England on 17th October 1915. George passed away on 10th October 1989 at St. George Hospital, Kogarah, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
David's parents didn't talk much about their families. George was one of a number of children. Some of which died during the war. We would like to find out if there are any relatives around as we are going to England in August 2008 and would like to meet any that are interested.
There was also some suggestion that a line of the Gurnhill family came from Canada and are curious about that??
I am a relative of John Small convict from the Charlotte and Mary Parker convict from the Lady Penrhyn. He owned land in the Ryde area. A lane is named after him.
My mothers mother was a Small from that linage. I would like to know the linage I came from. I am one of three children and have two of my own.
I know Sir Bruce Small (of Queensland) was a relative (possibly 2nd cousin) to my mother. There was some suggestion that Lady Fairfax was some distant relative also. Not sure where or really if. Is there a family crest etc??
My mother-in-law is Winifred Gurnhill (nee Surgey) born 20th November 1915 passed away 20th November 2007. She has lived in New South Wales for the past 61 years.
Her family home was 87 Redhill Lane and Win last had a letter from her youngest sister Bett Hurst who was then living in 29 Nursery Road Arnold.
Win's brother Albert passed away in 1987 and was laid to rest with his parents.
There is very little known by Win's surviving children - Kenneth Gurnhill, Valarie Cuthbert and my husband, the youngest of the three, David Gurnhill.
David and I are going to England in August 2008 to return Win's ashes to the area of her birth. Anyone with information about surviving family in England - could you please let us know.
