    EIGHTEEN family of Reading

    Hi folks, I hope this is the correct forum for this. :)

    I am searching for information regarding descendants or living relatives of Frederick Syer EIGHTEEN (1865 - 1919) of Reading, Berkshire. The Eighteen family originated in Hadleigh, Suffolk, but some of them gradually relocated to Reading around 1860. The Eighteens were well-established in the Newtown area of Reading and particularly around Leopold Road, Orts Road and Arthur Road, where at one time they owned numerous houses and businesses.


    Frederick married Charlotte Ellen Louisa SMITH (1870 - 1923) and they had thirteen children:


    01) Frederick Syer, Jr (1886 - 1938)
    02) Vincent Ormonde (1888 - 1924)
    03) John Herbert (1890 - 1893)
    04) Thomas Edwin (1891 - 1893)
    05) Stanley James (1893 - 1956)
    06) John Bernard (1896 - 1917)
    07) Henry Thomas (1897 - 1916)
    08) Vera Ellen Louise (1899 - 1966)
    09) Sidney Ernest (1901 - 1965)
    10) William Arthur (1903 - 1988)
    11) Maud Agnes (1907 - 1982)
    12) Nora Kathleen (1909 - 1909)
    13) Ruby Ellen (1911 - 1943)


    Some of the earlier dates may be a year out due to slight discrepancies between records.


    If you are a direct relative of any of these people and can share information, memories or photographs then I would love to hear from you. However, even if any of these names simply ring a bell, perhaps only as childhood memories of old neighbours for people who grew up in Reading in the 50s and 60s, please let me know. Any and all information - however vague - is greatly appreciated.


    Thank you!
    Eighteen -- Hadleigh, Suffolk; Reading, Berkshire
    Hendry -- Ballymena, Antrim; Glasgow, Lanarkshire
    Wylie -- Ballymena, Antrim; Glasgow, Lanarkshire

    this link takes you to ancestry message boards where a few people have been looking for the Eighteen family.
    Also if you google "eighteen family reading" you will see there is a solicitor with that surname practising in Reading - maybe worth contacting her.

      As any help given to James may involve living people, just a reminder that any names of people who are/or may be living should only be sent by Private Message to him.

        Thanks for the heads-up.

        The Eighteen family board on Ancestry was in fact one of my first ports of call, and I've been in contact with Julie Williamson (the lady who runs the board) and Les Eighteen, a distant relative who lives in Reading. Both of their names pop up quite frequently when researching the Eighteen name.

        Many thanks.

        Hendry -- Ballymena, Antrim; Glasgow, Lanarkshire
        Wylie -- Ballymena, Antrim; Glasgow, Lanarkshire
