Relationship to Philip Holland

John and Catherine (Lloyd) Jones were my Great-great Grandparents.

William and Ann Ellison were my Great-great Grandparents too.

John Jones son John Lloyd Jones married William and Ann's daughter Harriet Ellison and they were my Great Grandparents.

John Lloyd Jones son John William Jones married Lucy Grubham from Doddenham, Worcestershire and they were my Grandparents.

There daughter Doris Eliza Jones married John Edward Holland and they were my mother and father.

John Jones was a Head Gardner and obviously taught his son John Lloyd Jones all about gardening. John Lloyd Jones is seen on some of the marriage certificates of his children as a Gardener / Landscaper.

The parents names were John Jones and Catherine Lloyd. I have wondered if at first they were not married and that Lloyd was the name of his mother and that is where he got his middle name from. This would have been the same for his elder sister Katherine Lloyd Jones. After this they probably married. Perhaps Katherine had been fostered originally.

Charles writes of seven children and two who have died. Only four children are on this census So another child was either married or away from home when the census was taken.

His wife Aice Maria (Jones) Gatensbury was a sister to John Lloyd Jones my Great Grandfather and so Alice would have been my Great-Grandaunt.

Alice Maria Jones

When they married, Charles' occupation was Inn Keeper.
His father, also Charles, was a farmer. So perhaps Charles (and Alice) had to return from being an Inn Keeper to look after the farm on his father's death?
