    From Ernie Jackson:


    WHOW !!! Great research and detective work! I was wondering why I had not heard from you for a couple of weeks. Now I totally see why. The spider weaves many webs. So is it Amy Norton Wynne Santley Parrish Griffiths? Did she marry again after JJ’s death?

    If there was further interest in the Parrishes, I would invite you as a guest to the tree? Keep up the good work. Ernie.

    From Timothy West:

    Amy Griffiths aka Wynne Santley was my maternal grandmother. I am so glad to see the details posted on your blog of which I had no idea till I searched “Walter Norton Santley”. I would be grateful if you could email a readable copy of the marriage cert. posted in the blog.

    Emma Louisa Wynne was indeed living with Amy on Station Road and was known as Granny Wynne to the family. Incidentally Amy’s husband John Charles Griffiths is listed sometimes as having died in 1949 which is not correct, the correct date is 1962 the year after I was born.

    It would be a blast to find out that all the complication was down to dodgy deals perhaps in the USA.

    I did quiz my parents and other member of my family when they were alive but drew a blank, So would be grateful if you could let me know if you come across any revelations.

    One of my biggest unknowns is a lady called Minnie Siviter (could be spelt wrong) who lived with Elwy in the Isle of Wight until their deaths. No idea if there was a family connection or just simply a long lasting friend. Elwy’s descendants all met with sad ends.
