Can't help you much. But Leslie A was born in Eton in 1947, Janet M in Eton in 1958, John T (Jonathan?) in Eton in 1952, Nigel in Eton in 1955 and Susan J in Eton in 1948. When I say born I mean that the births were registered in Eton, Buckinghamshire, in those years, so they may actually have been born in the year before in a nearby town. They all share the same mother, a Ms Fisher, but I can not find a marriage between a Thomas Brind and a Ms Fisher. Was your father Michael C Brind. whose birth was registered in Norwich in 1957? If so he may also have sibling Melinia H (registered birth 1963). Do you know if your grandmother Alice might have been Alice Fisher?

There are seven Thomas Brinds whose birth was registered between 1900 and 1930. There are a lot more Brinds who had Thomas as a middle name. None of the seven look very hopeful, to me anyway. I'd guess the most likely is Thomas B Brind born Reading, 1923. His mother's maiden name was Gyngell. However I can not find a record of a Brind marrying a Ms Gyngell so this is a dead end.

Some of your father's brothers and sisters must still be alive. Have you thought of looking up their phone numbers and either giving them a call or sending them a letter?

Finally, you might be helped by getting your DNA checked. The Y line usually passes unchanged from father to son so this can detect your ancestral group. Some Brinds (including me) have already done this so you could compare your results with ours.

Known as Thomas.

No birth registration yet found.

Birth date given on his death cert 10th Sept 1910.

Searched under surnames Brind & Walters 5 years either side of 1910.

All four of his supposed siblings are registered; father William Thomas B rind & mother Annie Helen Brind nee Walters.

He stated his father as William Thomas Brind (deceased) on both marriage c erts.

Annie Helen Brind is a witness at his first marriage to Kathleen Harris.

Jan's mum Alice is adamant that his mother's first name was "Mabel!"

Annie Helen did have a sister Mabel

Was the mother of George Thomas, "Mabel!"?

Was this Mabel the sister of Annie Helen?

I have not located a death for Mabel Walters or a marriage.

I will check the electoral registers for the time period c 1920's-1960's

To see if a Mabel was living at 19 Mill Street Colnbrook, and or surrounding area.

Marriage and death for Mabel now found! So I think it is not worthwhile checking the said electoral registers.

I have concluded that Mabel the sister of Annie was not the mother of Thom as!

Have sent for the birth cert for a Edwin C Brind reg in Sept Qtr 1910, Wantage, for the purpose of illimination!
