    Hi Fred,

    A google search found your e mail question. I descend from Edith Southerden, daughter of Frank. She was my great grandmother. She married Arthur Gibbs in Hastings in 1916, had my Grandfather Alec John Gibbs in 1921 and then my Mum Carol Gibbs in 1951. Please see my family tree on ancestry.co.uk. It’s the Appleby family tree. Do you have anything that would help me? I guess we are dustantly related. Also. Have you checked this out?
