JOHN TERRY B1909 LANCASHIRE

Does anyone have any TERRY family ancestors in the Lancashire area please ?

Most of the Terry families I have found have been from Southern England but the ones I am researching originate in Ireland but then travelled to Scotland before on to Lancashire.

JOHN TERRY B1909 BURY LANCASHIRE was the son of WILLIAM TERRY B1890 HEYWOOD LANCASHIRE and my mothers brother.

I have only just found out that my mother had a brother called John. He died as a prisoner of war in Japan in WW2 and she never mentioned him to me .

WILLIAM TERRY B1890 was in the Royal Navy and it would seem that John was brought up by the JACKSON family in BURY LANCASHIRE and this is possibly why my mother never said she had another brother.

Is there anyone researching these families ?

BERTHA THORNTON B1919 NEW ZEALAND

I am trying to trace the family on BERTHA THORNTON B1919 NEW ZEALAND
She was the daughter of PERCY THORNTON B1880 LANCASHIRE UK and MARY ANN CADE B1880.
She had one brother CHARLES OSWALD THORNTON B1921 New Zealand.

Bertha was the founder of MARY GRAY CHOCOLATES a handmade chocolate business in New Zealand which is still trading.

I am really trying to find out more about the business she created and more about her and her family.

looking for SIMS of LONDON

I have a WILLIAM SIMS marrying a SARAH MILLINGTON in 1780 ST Bololph Bishops Gate London.
I have found one son my gggg grandfather, THOMAS SIMS B1781 HAMPTON WICK MIDDLESEX.
I can find no other children that I can prove but I have found four children born in Bath Somerset to a William and Sarah Sims whom I believe could be connected.
The children are JOSEPH MILLINGTON SIMS B1787,WILLIAM EDMUND SIMS B1789.ANNA MARIA SIMS B1791 and MARY ANN SIMS B1794 all christened Bath Abbey
Does anyone have any information on either of these families or any other Sims family from similar area please ?
