Hi
it seems we are distantly related as my great great grandad was William Edward Guest. I wonder if you have any information on the family? Ive have pictures of William who was a coal merchant living in Cromwell Road and who had a shop in Lockwood Road Northfield, and I also have pictures of Hannah's younger brother Edward aswell as her mother Isabella.

I'm following his topic with interest as recently we helped another with the 'burial plot' of Wm Guest. Would appreciate seeing a photo of Isabella.

Hi,
My great great great grandmother was the same Isabella Guest. I'd love to see a picture of her if you've got one. Her daughter Hannah Guest was great great grandmother. I have a few pictures of her.
Regards
Dan

I'm amazed at the number of people who have Isabella as their Gt*grandmother. Is it possible Mark that you could also send me a copy for the History Group archives? [email protected]

Many thanks. (Would acknowledge you as the originator if you supply your surname).

Count me in as one of those people descended from Isabella. I'd love to see what information and pictures you have of Isabella and any of her 11 children that survived to adulthood. I've collected a decent amount of info over the years (including from Local History & SO73) but am always after more.

hi Iain
would be great to see some of your info regarding our family, if you send me your email address i will forward you a picture of Isabella and some of the information and family pictures I have. My line goes through Isabella's son Edward and then through William Edward, how about yourself?

Hi Mark

I'll PM you my email address. I'm descended through Isabella's son Thomas from her marriage to Isaac Price. She was my 3x great grandmother.
