Note on Husband: Richard Joseph LINDSAY

Hi Graham

Very little I can tell you about Richard other than born in Leroy St. Bermondsey in 1907 to

William Lindsay & Elizabeth Ellen Russell and was 1 of 16 siblings and was the youngest.

His 2nd marriage was to my wife's Mother and they lived in South London till he retired and they moved to Devon .

any connection give me a buzz



Hi Graham

thanks for the reply--any tree makes interesting reading

if you can relate to anyone on it.As I said in my last missive Richard remarried after his 1st wife died and she was. my wifes,mum.

Just to tie up the loose ends on your tree they married in1963 in Wandsworth,moved to Monkokehampton in Devon (about 9 miles from Okehampton)when they retired Richard died in 1982 and his wife died in 1997

I have never really tried to track down Richards

family history as there was the usual falling outs amongst a large family and we only ever met 2 of the sisters(Bobby & Daisy) and heard about William jnr.

who was a Chelsea Pensioner!

So I have had a look at your tree and it more or less confirms what we had been told by Richard and your offer of a tree diagram is a kind one but I dont think it will mean very much to me

Happy hunting and much success in your research

with regards~~~Leigh Craig
