Houghs from Wales!

I understand the Hough clan is fairly large around north wales / cheshire. I am researching my dad's side of the family and was wandering if there is anyone who can enlighten me further as I have come to somewhat of a full stop.

My Dad (Lester Hough) comes from Ruabon (born in Wrexham - 1950). His father was John Hough (Don't know about middle names). There is one record of a John Hough from wrexham (born 1931) but no death records (died when my dad's brother (carl peter hough) was fairly young i think, although I don't have any dates).

The only other things I know are that John Hough was married to Charlotte Hartmann. After he died she remarried Derek Manasseh (by then they had moved to oxford area).

I gather John Hough came from a very large family (most of whom seemed to have something to do with the RAF?. The only sibling I know of is a Cedric Hough (lives down south somewhere) who I met a couple of years ago and is still alive and kicking!

If anyone could shed some more info, I'd be very gratefull.

Hi Tim
My son Robert directed me to your message. I am John's youngest sister, his middle name was Herbert. I still live in Wales but about 20 mins from Ruabon. What would you like to know? I could probably fill in quite a few gaps for you if you so wished. Say hello to your dad for me. I am still in touch with Peter and Charlotte, in fact we will be visiting there this year.
