hello as you can see my name is jimmy, and have joined this site as I am interested in finding any info on a family named henderby, I know that certain members lived in chapel street berwick upon tweed in the 1880's, alexander, mary (nee forrest) and alexander junior who went to pascendale in the great war.
Also I think a later generation went to live in the greens area of berwick and included fishermen by the name of alexander and maybe jimmy and a female mary, mary married bob (I think) and became mary white and both she and jimmy ended up living in highfields, jimmy was a gunner for the royal artillery during the 2nd world war and died young from T.B. I know jimmy married and had children, I understand his wife and kids moved on to hull.
I would be delighted if anyone could help me shed any light on any of the above, I will no doubt be back later with more different surnames in the future.
All my thanks, Jimmy white. :- Sorry Jimmy, your email address has been removed as per site policy dave
