FOSTER in Ferryhill


New member
I am trying to contact any descendants of Lilian and Charlie Foster who lived in Ferryhill until probably the 1980's. Lilian (nee Crossman) was born in 1898 in Haverigg, Cumberland and moved to Ferryhill when she was about 5. Her parents were John and Grace Crossman.
Lilian and Charley had four children that I know of...John, Ernie, Grace and Charley. At least two of the boys are dead, maybe all three, but they probably had children. Grace married but I don't know her married name unfortunately, three possible marriages in the area are to a Wilson, a Walker and a Johnson.
I would love to hear from anyone connected with this branch of the family. A sister of Lilian was my grandmother.
Good morning -

While i don't know where Ferryhill is located in the UK, I too am looking for members of June Foster's family. Actually looking for any Foster family members in and around Watford England during the 1960's and most recently.

Any information you have would be most helpful. If I come across any information you're looking for, I'll be sure to pass it on.
