Hi Joyce,
Just started to trace my family history. It was difficult as my father changed his name. It seems that I am a Wenban. My Grandmother was Ethel Annie Wenban 1893-1991 from Ticehurst, east Sussex. My understanding is that she gave birth before she was married. My Father was borne Robert H Wenban 25/03/1923, and then adopted to a family called Spaul. He then later changed his name to Wainwright. I was hoping to discover details of His father (My Grandfather). I was told he was Irish and that his surname was probably Fox. I was wondering if any of the information I am looking for is within your domain?
