Ancestors of Barry James

Welcome to my home on the net

Come and join me on our facebook page

Welcome to my web site! Many hours of work have been put into the research and documentation of these ancestors. I hope you will benefit from the information I present here.
A special thanks go to two of my cousins, Linda Pardoe and Ann Willis who have done most of the research for the Pardoe, Hose and Watkins Families and a special mention for Gaynor Woolley who has supplied a great deal of information about the family of John Henry Edgar Hose. Further special thanks go to all contributors who have enabled this website to expand to over 14000 individuals.

Simpson Thomas William Pardoe was a leading light in the running of Covent Garden Fruit and Vegetable Market at the end of the 19th Century. He ran 3 fruit and Veg shops, one in Balham and two in and around Peckham S.E. London. He was President of the London & Counties Retail Fuitiers' and Florists' Association and represented this association during the Porterage Strike of August 1924.

The site is still under continuous construction and family photos and stories will be added in due course. Just to whet your appetite in the Hose family was a former Bishop of Singapore. Also within the Snape family are various members of the clergy and also a survivor of the charge of the Light Brigade
