Hello from a Newbie (who hopes she is putting info in the right places!).

Searching for George Robert GRIMSEY b.17 May 1860, Harwich, Essex, England. He became a mariner. George Robert GRIMSEY m. Maria Theresia Catharina Van HEURCK, I guess sometime before Feb 1877 when their daughter Theresia Georges Anna GRIMSEY was born on 4 Feb 1887 in Antwerp. There were 2 other children born and died very young - Sn GRIMSEY b. 20 Aug 1888 d. 22 Sep 1888 and George Robert GRIMSEY b. 19 Aug 1889 d. 23 Aug 1889 both in Antwerp.

I have found no further trace of this family. George Robert GRIMSEY is my partners first cousin, twice removed.

All help appreciated.

Hi Glenys

Welcome to the site, good luck with your research.

If you don't have much luck on this board/forum we can move it to another where it may attract more interest.

Hi Geoff

Please move this to the thread you are suggesting. I have the English details it is the Netherlands and Belgium (Antwerp and Rotterdam) areas where the next steps need to be.

With thanks to those who have posted.

Moved as requested.
