Hi Julie; thanks for the reply.
I have no idea where my family roots originated
other than a family tree that was drawn up by someone, propbably
in my great-grandmother's era and was passed
down to my father.
This is the ascending order as best I can make it out:
My father: Gordon Percy Preston
My grandfather: Stanley Cadugan Preston (Dora)
My g-grandfather: Percy Preston (Annie)
My gg-grandfather: Joseph Thomas (Jane )
My ggg-grandfather: ?Stanley William ?
My gggg-grandfather: Henry John Preston - who was married to Sarah Susannah
Sarah Susannah was the daughter of Joseph Chamberlain and sister of Joseph Chamberlain , Arthur and Walter
Joseph Chamberlain(Sarah's brother)was the father of Austen, Beatrice and Neville Chamberlain. Neville was Prime Minister 1939 - 1940
Birmingham appears to be where the Chamberlain's resided but where Sarah and Henry Preston and all those who followed after were located, I do not know.
If you would like more info, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I really would like to fill in some of the blanks as to dates, etc.
