Hi,

My name is Michelle and I'm trying to find out information on my great uncle William Wiltshire Underwood. Also hunting for some Featherstone/Moffat relatives and my husband's family the Hancox's.

First time I've joined a forum.

Hi michelle, I am also related to william wiltshire underwood, I think he was my great grand father, son of william underwood, grandson of albert underwood (and father of my grandfather also called albert underwood - who was born in india) - does this seem familiar ?

my late grandmother Monica Jane underwood was the daughter of William Wiltshire underwood and Constance baker. She was born in India. She was my fathers mother.
we know very little of her parents and all info welcome please. Do you have Williams service number as I’d like to trace his military history as struggling with him in India as records don’t seem as good
 
Hello Anne Marie,
My mother is William Wiltshire Underwood's niece. She is the daughter of his sister Gladys and is almost 90 now. I've been to the British Library in London to look at William's army service record. There's a lot to look through! If you would like more info drop me a reply. My mum has done an Ancestry DNA test. Bye
 
Absolutely! I have so much to learn about our family, any help appreciated.
How’s best to contact you?
Email? Facebook?
id love any photos or info you have as my dad has absolutely no info on his grandfather xx
 
Hi,

Lovely to hear back from you. I’m away from home at the moment so don’t have access to my family history files, when I get home tomorrow I’ll get some info together for you. My mum did an Ancestry DNA test and I think your grandmother Monica’s name came up as a match. I don’t have my password to Ancestry with me! It might be good to connect through Ancestry via the DNA log in.....if that makes sense (I don’t have a subscription) Off the top of my head William Wiltshire Underwood married 3 times in India, Doris Shedden, Constance Hester Sybil Baker and Kathleen Marazzi. He died in 1948 in Baginton Fields near Coventry. I have a copy of his death certificate that I can scan and send to you. Unfortunately my research came to a halt when he died I couldn’t find out what happened to his wife and children. I did visit his grave in Coventry. I’ll be in touch again soon.
