DRIANT of France, born 1922

Jean-Charles Driant lived in London, UK from roughly 1945 until his death in 1989. He was a minor TV and film actor, and was married in 1947. He was born in 1922 in France. I have not been able to find his birth via geneanet or other sites. I have not applied for the marriage certificate. Does anyone know where in France he was born, or who his parents were. It appears he did not have any children.

Who remembers Constance Rose Price (1961-1968) nee James?

Constance was born in Haverfordwest, west Wales in 1891. In 1912 she had a daughter, Emmeline James, born in Cardiff. In 1917 in Aberdare she married William David Price, a coal miner. They had a son, Douglas, and may have had other children. In about 1948 they returned to Haverfordwest, where William died in 1963, and Constance in 1968. I am helping Constance's grand-daughter, and she wishes to find out more about her grandmother, about whom she did not know until recently. Does anyone know anyone related to Constance, or have any information about her life in Wales.

Henry Mobbs, born in Norfolk, England in the mid 1830s

A Henry Mobbs was born in Norwich in 1867 and in 1891 he married Ann Hardy.His father was another Henry Mobbs, described as a cloth hawker. I think he is the Henry Mobbs buried in Norwich in 1903, born roughly 1835. Now, there was a Henry Mobbs born in 1836/7 in Yarmouth to shoemaker Edward Mobbs and Hannah. The older Henry is very elusive. Does anyone have any information?

Mary's father is unknown, but may have come from a well-to-do family. In 1925 they moved to New South Wales, where Veronica married Frederick Shields. Veronica died in Australia in 1974. Does anyone have any thoughts or comments?

They had two children during the war, Ronald and Pauline and it is certain that they all emigrated to Canada after the war. I am helping Florence's grand-daughter.
