Great-grandfather John Holmes born Dover c.1925, son of William Read Elizabeth Holmes, Dover. Father a pilot at Dover. John became master mariner and later came to Australia where he married Unity Sweeny. Became cedar cutter/landowner, but drowned leaving widow and four young children. Elder brother, William, lived in Aberdeen; had other brothers and sisters, all mainly around Dover/Deal area. Have some old photographs of these. Any information appreciated. Quite a family in Australia! Family still in Dover area during World War I as uncle visited them. Possibly also associated with ship-building. One sister married a Larkins, also a pilot. Margeret.
