Hello Narelle,
My Gt Uncle Jack went to Perth with Vera. I have the full tree back to 1840 that includes Jack, as well as his elder brother Frank who won the Military Medal in the 1st World war.
There were 7 Jancey (Pronounced Jauncey) boys in Hereford (Kenchester) and each of then had a Sister, Elenor Mary (Nellie). Sounds as if they were a bit of an handful. I've got photo's of "the crossing" where they were all brought up and a number of stories that dad told me, including a fight in a pub and the quick exit to get Jack up to Tibury docks and away to Perth. (Could be just a story - but it's what Dad told me happened) !! I'll send you more info if you make contact. Cheers Dave Jancey. Stevenage. England.

I'm also researching my family tree throughout Herefordshire and there does seem to be quite a few strands to the Jancey or Jauncey family. If I could find a few links between some of the strands I would be a bit happier! Can I ask you to tell me which line you are descended from? I'm guessing from the information you've posted on this site that you are probably descended from a William Jancey born in Stretton Grandison in 1867. If this is correct, would that then make him the son of John born in about 1830/35 in Much Cowarne? Any help you could give would be appreciated. Thanks.

Dear Narelle

My mother born in Hereford, had a brother John Jancey (born 1900), she had 7 brothers and was the youngest of the family. Jack emigrated to Australia living in Perth and had a large family! I wonder if it just a coincidence or if we are related. Regards Fay

Dear Dave

I am Eleanor Jancey's daughter! I have just come across your email as I'm researching my family. Mum didn't tell me about the fight! Can you let me know whose son you are
