Hi. I'm looking to trace back my family tree from George Dwan, my g.g.g.grandfather (b. 1824), Bermondsey. and also trace my family tree from his descendants. George had 7 children Thomas (1849-1900), George (1854-1930), Emma (b. 1858), James (1863-1906), Jane (b.1867) William (my g.g.grandfather 1869-1934) and Elizabeth (b. 1874)

William Dwan married Alice Elizabeth Carter and had 11 children. William (1893-1943), George Charles (b. 1895), Emma Alice (b. 1896), Arthur (b.1896) Thomas Frederick (my g.grandfather 1899-1963) Albert Edward (1902-1940) Ethel Annie (b.1904) Ernest Sydney (d.1943) Christopher, Charles and Lillian.

If you are related to me or could tell me any furthur information, or correct wrong information. please email me james.dwan@btinternet.com

Hi James, just bumping our posts to see if anyone reading this thread was interested in adding something but was put off by the date of the original post. How are you, cousin? ;)

To anyone reading this, we've come a long way with the Bermondsey/Rotherhithe/St Olave Dwans and the family tree is really taking shape now, with the discovery of a large family out in Canada. Would love to share it all, if anyone's interested and has anything to contribute to it.

I look forward to being bombarded with messages,
Vicky

Some names that might be familiar to you if you've got this far...

My grandmother was Joyce Margaret Dwan from Bermondsey. Her parents were Sarah "Lily" Turner and George Charles Dwan. She was married to Percy Victor Frank Barrington (known as "Charlie" during WWII).

My grandmother was one of a possible 12 children: George James Dwan, Leonard Stanley Dwan, Lilian May L. Dwan, Albert Thomas Dwan, Arthur William Dwan, Ellen Alice Dwan, Christopher Dwan, Ronald Dwan and Mary Dwan. There were possibly two others: Tommy and Olive.

My g-grandfather - George Charles Dwan - was one of 11 children: Arthur William Dwan, Elizabeth Jane "Lily" Dwan, William Dwan, Emma Alice Dwan, Thomas Frederick Dwan, Albert Edward Dwan, Ethel Annie Dwan, Charles Frederick Dwan, Christopher John Dwan and Ernest Sydney Dwan.

If any of these names ring any bells with you, please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you and share our family tree.

Thanks and best wishes,
Vicky

Hi My mum is Georgina Ann Dwan, who is the daughter of George James Dwan and his wife Gladys Dwan ( My Grandparents).

My mum Georgina ( Gina) has been trying to look back at her family tree but it keeps getting a bit confusing. She can find out info about her uncle Len who disappeared in his plane during the war but I know she would love to hear more.

Can we contact you?

Thanks! Jo
