Mum (83) was reminiscing about the family this morning. i have just typed into Google the name of my great great uncle Charles Henry Wood's wife Sarah Amelia and was delighted to find her maiden name and details about her family, the Chafers of Epworth. Charles and Sarah Amelia (Millie) lived in Rotherham and had a market garden. Millie was a superb dressmaker and when Charlie died made him a white suit for the funeral.
Coincidentally my husband is a descendant of the Coggan family (Robert Coggan 1825 Althorpe, Burringham) who moved to Sheffield with his wife Susannah, nee Smith.
