I just tripped over the site. You can see from the surname a common interest. My grandad was John Finn, I think he was brother to Thomas, born in Batley and regular attenders of Mass at St Mary's of the Angels. I believe Thomas went to India to run a textile mill. I also think that he travelled and worked in New Zealand and was pretty successful. He was my Dad, Terence's uncle.
I think they returned to live in the midlands somewhere (rumour has it in a grand house on National Trust land - Worcestershire I think).
I met him once at my Grandad's funeral in 1979.
