I am resuming research (after a very long break due to other commitments)
researching my family tree.
My mother Ruby is one daughter of Stanley Eugene Desbruslais and Edith
Mandelli, the other children being Daphne, Pamela, Diamond, Veronica, Jean
and I believe there was a brother who sadly didn't live.
Great Grandfather Eugene Francis, I believe was married twice had several
children (Frederick, Eugene, Clarence, Ernest, Mary, William, Alice, Henry,
Connie, Dorothy, Edwin, Leonard) from the first marriage to Ann Mary
Delanougerede and my grandfather from the second to Perine.
Grandfather and Grandmother died when my mum and her siblings where young -
some of them I have being told went into the care of the little sisters of
the poor who ran an orphanage St. Vincents at Entally Calcutta.
Uncle Leonard may have funded the crossing of part of the family to England
- they were care for by my Aunty Noreen (as I called her) and William
Constable her husband. I do not known Aunty Noreen's maiden name but
apparently she was actually a cousin to grandfather Stanley. Aunty Noreen
had daughters Coleen, Mary and a son Alan.
Other families that may be related include Augier, Fleury and Michel. We
also have an Aunty Gertie who I think now lives in Australia and has a son
and daughter Geraldine.
Hope to hear from anyone who knew them or is related to us.
Many thanks in anticipation.
