Dear Eccythump

I see that this message was posted in 2005, and I wonder if you still use this site? I was researching my family history this afternoon, and know we have a link to the Netherby - the Newbrooks. Elizabeth Ann Newbrook married James Sloan, as you say; Florence May Sloan, their daughter, is my great-grandmother and lived in Melbourne, Australia. She died in 1971 and I just remember her. Her eldest son was Alan Lindsay (Florence married a chap called Samuel Lindsay), and Alan was my grandfather; he died n 2008 at the ripe old age of 98. I've just spoken with my dad (who is also called Alan!) who remembers that his grandmother was very charitable, and he can well imagine her sending food parcels. He also remembers that she travelled to the UK but, in his words, 'she had to get back on the boat almost straight away, as War was declared'. Perhaps this is one of the missing bits of your jigsaw? Best wishes, Jayne
