What a wonderful web page.

I have just found that my great-great-great Grandmother was born in Dursley in 1803 and it was really wonderful not only to be able to get a bird's eye view of the town as it is today but to get an idea of what it must have been like from the old postcards.

It's a long way back but I'm trying to trace Eliza born in 1803 and by 1861 married to ? Share (probably William) in Stourbridge. I don't know his name or birthplace as Eliza was a widow by the time of the 1861 census and I haven't been able to trace any marriage details so far.

I'll come and visit when I make my "family tree" visit to England.

My family came to Perth from Wolverhampton in the early 1950s as part of the post war migration to Australia and although I have wanted to research family history for years, and indeed came back to live in England for several years on an extended working holiday, it is only now, with wonderful web sites like yours that it is becoming more practical and so very interesting.

Congratulations on producing such an good website.

I am trying to research my family tree. According to members of my family I am somehow related to the Earls of Dursley. If anyone has information on Edwin Lawrence Tippitt, May Dewar Tippitt, Lady Elizabeth Craven, the Tippitt family and of course the Earls of Dursley this would be gratefully received. Anyone with information can get in touch on the e-mail address provided.

There is a pub called 'The Tippets'. It is around a 10 min drive from Dursley. Don't know much about it but it's a bit of a coincidence about the name. Lovely pub, great food, was there last week!

I'm afraid "The Tippets" refers to the game of tippets (a bit like tiddly winks

I am researching the Dauncey family and know that my ggggrandfather Daniel Dauncey was born in Dursley in 1816. His parents were Joseph Dauncey b1769 and Mary Exell. He married an Elizabeth Park in 1840. If anyone has any information on this family I would be very grateful.

Great website by the way.

Congratulations on a marvellous web site. I was at Dursley Grammar School in the 1950s and thus recognised some names in the guest book. I left Dursley 45 years ago and so I particularly enjoyed the virtual tour as a way of seeing Dursley again.

I think Dursley is wonderful despite recent claims to suggest otherwise. Anyway we are surrounded by luscious hills and beautiful scenery. We also have a lovely community and parish of which I am privileged to be a part of.

My father left Dursley in 1933, moving to Southall, Middx. My Grandparents lived in Fourth Ave, Highfields until their deaths. We have many relatives in the area and I have been visiting since 1940! Congratulations on a great website.
My son, Marcus, is currently Site Manager for the Crest-Nicholson development of part of the old R A Lister site at the bottom of Long Street. It's a small world!

My name is Kathy Layendecker, and my mom was born in Cam, nr. Dursley in 1923. She married a Yank, my dad, and moved to New Jersey. Her name is Peggy E. Tafero, nee Smith. Her dad was Montagu Smith, and her mom was named Kathleen Hill.
If anyone knows my family, I would love to hear from you.

Only just found the web site but have enjoyed my first look at it. Well done.
Some familiar names appear in the guest book, Pat Nixon, Jennifer Stebbings and Pauline French. Also Paul Etheridge and John Parussi. John & I worked together in the BBC in London. We were at the Grammar school in the fifties. That dates us!
The photos of the railway from Colin Timbrell and Gilroy Kerr also brought back memories of both people and The Dursley Donkey. Many thanks.

Hi, my name is Jane Dursley. I am trying to find out if anyone from Dursley knew my uncle Les and what he was trying to find out. His name was Leslie Dursley from the Merseyside. His brother's name is Reg, who is my grandad. Les died in 2001. I want to pick up where he left off so any information would be great.

I would like to contact someone regarding the Petrol Tow trucks that LISTERS made, and were in use with my old firm GKN Sankey, probably pre 1960

My wife and I have visited Dursley several times, the connection being,of course,my family name,Dursley.
The history site provided interesting confirmation that the family,which was based in Bristol as far as I was concerned, did indeed probably originate from a foundling born and brought up in Dursley, and moved to Bristol at the time of the need for workers at the Bristol factories and docks etc.

Fabulous website. I have lived in Cam for 11 years, Mel has recently moved from B'ham. We both work at the pet hotel and the website makes very interesting reading.

What a wonderful web site, it brought back so many memories for me. The tour of Dursley brought me to my late Nan and Pop's house, 1 Prospect Place, Dursley. They lived in "Hillwood House". Names are Eliza and Ivor james Roach. My Father Donald was the youngest of five children. He worked from the age of 11 at the local butcher shop. Later on Donald also joined the Stroud Fire Brigade then in 1974 migrated with his family to Sydney, Australia. Does anyone know what has happened to Hillwood house now? It should be a part of your town's history as before my grandparents owned it it was a Manor House. Lesley

What a great site. I was born in Berkeley and attended Dursley Grammar School from the very late 50's to the mid 60's. Percy Woodland was head master and Joe West was senior master. He was also our math teacher in the Sixth form.
I've lived in the States since 1981 and manage to get back to Dursley now and then. email me if you like - Graham
