Hi
I am researching my grandfather brother Henry Goodey's, wife and family.
My grandfather was George Goodey his brother was Henry Goodey who married Florence Whitley in 1908 in Holborn, London, England.
Florence Whitley's parents were Gustave (Henry?) Whitley born abt. 1853 in France and Louisa (Collins?) born abt. 1858 in Marylebone, London, England.

I have yet to establish when Gustave Whitley and Louisa were married and where.
Their children including Florence were all born in London.

At present I believe that Gustave Whitley's parents were George Whitley a Professor of Languages born abt. 1823 in Ireland, and Evelina Hache born abt. 1835 in Paris France, who were married in France I am not sure where but possibly in Amiens where Gustave's siblings were born.

Any help to clarify these issues would be gratefully appreciated.

Regards

Richard

Do you have any names and dates for Gustave's siblings and, if so, where did you find them? Was Gustave born in Amiens too? Is he on any of the Censuses with a birth place more precise than just "France"?

Hi Folks

Thanks for your replies, which are all very helpful.

As far as I know the Children of Gustave (sometimes appears as Gustavus) Whitley and his wife Louisa Collins were Evelina Whitley born 1879 and Florence Whitley born in 1883 both of whom were born in Holborn I believe and Annetta (or Annette) born in 1886 and Henry Gustave Whitley born in 1888 who were both born in the St. Pancras area I believe.

Many thanks

Richard
