      I have his working papers so I can take a look for you. Basically the only non-Guernsey families were on his mother’s side. His maternal grandmother came from Jersey and his maternal grandfather came from La Manche. I have put loads of his family history on the website so take a look and get back to me if you think that I can be of further help. Kind regards Richard (Barton)

        hello richard . had a look on brian’s family torode papers but i cant see anything regarding my family .i only have my own memories of what my mother told me .that my grandmother came from around st malo and married my grandad abraham [ isaac ] torode my dad norman peter torode was born in 1914 he had a brother cecil who went down in a battleship the baham two sisters nella and eloise all born at st. savours . its strange because my daughter was in touch with him a few years ago and i am sure she said that our grandmothers were related and that they both came from the same family in brittany and both married torodes …
