Wilks Family History

Dear Chris,
I believe there may be a connection between our families. My Great Grandfather was James Wilks(birthdate around 1830 in Birmingham, England). I do not know any of his siblings but he was married to Ann Darroll and they owned one of the Swan Restaurant and Inns there. They had 14 children the youngest one being my grandfather, Henry Darroll Wilks born Aug. 31st, 1867,I do not know any of the siblings names. Henry and his wife, Catherine Airy Cook Douglas, came to Canada in 1911 with their daughter Mary (Maize) and son (my Father) Walter Charles Douglas Wilks.
They moved to Cincinnati, OH in 1923 which is where I was born and still live. I am looking for names of Henry's siblings and Jame's siblings. I also wish to go back further than James. Being both our families are from Birmingham there is a good chance we could be from the same line. Do any of these names sound familiar to you. I hope we can help each other. I would love to here from you. My e-mail address is Nakoma4058@aol.com. Contact me if you think there may be a connection. Good look on you search.

Sincerely,
Leah Hand

JAMES WILKS 1829 from England (Brewer)

Chris,
Thank you so much. I have been researching on line for a few months and have not been getting any where. I am taking a trip to England in March and hope to find out more before I go. It would be so great to visit places that have a connection to my family and would be even better if I could find some of them. My father had 2 sisters, one who died as an infant and the other 2 years before his death. His sister had one son my cousin Bruce who has always kind of been a loner and we were never close to. He lives here in Cincinnati but I have not seen him for years. He is in his 60's now and I am 42. I think I may call him and see if he has any info that I do not have. Your help is greatly appreciated. I am anxious to hear back from you.

Re: Wilkes Family (UK) Mary Ann Wilkes/Thomas Booth

I am not sure whether MARY ANN WILKES (born 1837) has anything to do with your family but I would like to find out more about her. She married THOMAS BOOTH (1837-1882) circa 1856 in BIRMINGHAM and they raised a large family, although Clara is not one of the children. Thomas Booth died at the age of 46 and I can find nothing further about Mary Ann after his death. I wondered whether she had remarried after Thomas' death. If anyone can tell me more about Mary Ann Wilkes, I would be very grateful.

Regards,

Jean
