I am new to your list . I am from CANADA and the first ancestor
ENGLAND, NORFOLK, in fact, back in the mid 1800's.
His name was ROBERT VYSE, born or baptized in 1821 and his wife was
CHARLOTTE MARIA WARD GOBBETT(BD1826). They came to CANADA
in 1857-58, along with their son WILLIAM, (BD 1846)
The reason I am writing the LONDON L is because I have in my
letters from relatives from UPPER SYNDENHAM, LONDON back in the 1930's.
WILLIAM, and his son, STEVE VYSE used to visit these relatives in
STEVE VYSE was in the 1st WW and visited UPPER SYNDENHAM while on
Leave from FRANCE. He ultimately married one of his cousins, distant, I
also with the SURNAME VYSE.
I would like to contact distant relatives, VYSE'S, to exchange any
you might have on this rather elusive family.
Also, I have 'DEATH NOTICES" of 2 VYSES from ENGLAND. There names
were CHARLES AND JAMES VYSE. I would like to know if these fellows were
indeed ROBERT'S brothers. On ROBERT'S Marriage Certificate it has his
name as "JOHN".
I truly hope that this reaches some VYSE'S as I have been looking
for a long long time. If anybody knows of any VYSE'S out there, even if
not on 'THE LIST' would they be so kind as to see that they get this
message. I am
pretty sure that they would be related, even very distantly, as it is
such a small and
