looking for information on Henry Myers (dob 1842)married to Eliza Ann Myers (nee Jenkins), and their children Alice, Henry, Eliza Anna, William (my grandfather), Francis, Edith, John, Ellen and Thomas

Any info would be appreciated

South Africa


Do you already have them in the censuses up to 1911 or is that what you are asking for?
Are you aware that they had a 10th child, Fred, in q4 1871? He died in q1 1875.


Hi Dave
Thank you so much. No, I had no idea about Fred so thank you for that info. William emigrated from England to South Africa with his wife Annie Elizabeth (nee Sanderson) in 1906. I just need any information at all really. My dad Charles was born here in South Africa but apart from two of his siblings I have hit a brick wall about their descendants.

Thank you again



Jill, have you tried to contact any of the several tree owners on Ancestry who have this family?
It would seem that Henry's parents were Benjamin Myers and Mary Ann Mason.


Hi Jill,

1911 census - 116 Eyre Lane, Sheffield.
