Thank you Peter. I have received an email from Myles and he has informed me I am on correct path. My mum mentioned Lorna Rae and Uncle Ray, Ossie and others when she spoke of her family. Mum was youngest of William Wenban (1859-1919)I believe his son David may have had a son to carry on the Wenban name, but other son Percie had one daughter.Uncle Percie tried to track down the large family bible that had been passed down from William to William to William. My grandfather died when mum was six and the children were sent to different relatives to be raised. The eldest, a daughter Phyllis, was given the bible. Apparently she gave the bible away to some charity, and Percie was unable to trace it, so the written record passed down from William and Mary Anne Wenban(Odiam) was lost.
I have visited the Wenban site,and have already emailed son Gareth to inform him that he could visit the church, but not the farm. I have found this journey a fascinating one.
Many Thanks,
Regards,
Diana
