While we are on the subject of the Whibley family (no, I still haven't heard from Ronan Quick), I thought I'd tell you a little bit about my great great grandfather, Richard Whibley, a school gardener.
For the last four months, one name has sat at the top of my AncestryDNA messages. Ronan Quick. Out of the 10,000+ AncestryDNA members who share some DNA with me, Ronan is my top match. But how am I related to Ronan, who lives in a tiny town on the other side of the world?
Jack and Herbert were the children of Emily Downing, the oldest daughter of Henry Downing. They were cousins to my great grandfather Frederick. They were both civilians killed during The Blitz.
Joseph is a relative that I still have many unanswered questions about - so you may find this post resurfaces in future with some updates. Who was his first wife, and where did she go?
