    Smile Ian Sewell - Cockney northerner

    My dad was a wwII evacuee from Stepney in the the East End. He was sent to Batley in the West Riding where he met my, now late, mum. They married in 1951 and I was born in 1954; my brother, Kevin, was born in 1956. I was born and bred in Batley and moved to Scarborough in 1988.

    My dad's name is Thomas William Sewell and so was his dad.

    Would love to know if there is anyone out there who might have known him or the family.

    I do know snippets of information but would like to delve deeper.

    I am now researching my family through Ancestry.co.uk and others and am finding it fascinating!

    Hi everyone

    Just recently I have added lots of Sewell cousins, some of whom are still with us. I have connected through Ancestry and Facebook but got a kick start from purchasing a couple of birth and marriage certificates from the GRO.

    The initial message was answered quite a while back :-)

    I recently became a paying member of the Society and am really enjoying ALL the articles, whatever the name connection.

    All the very best to each of you - and happy searching and connecting!!!
