  1. Hi Susan, I am interested in Gascoigne family connection to the Ryde area as I am a member of the Ryde District Historical Society and would like to write up an article for our magazine..

    I was in contact with you some years ago in regards my husband’s (James Patterson) relationship to the Gascoignes – his grandfather, Roland Anthony Patterson [spelled his surname differently than his siblings], was the brother of Sarah Paterson who married Thomas Gascoigne. I also have a remote family connection to the Gascoignes through my link with Francis Anschau who married Beatrice Gascoigne (daughter of James); Francis was the son of Bridget Anschau nee Dorahy, the sister of my great-grandfather Patrick Dorahy.

    Six degrees of separation???

    Regards
    Helen Patterson

    • Hi Helen,

      Yes, I remember you now, I lost your contact details when my laptop had a meltdown. I will contact you on your email this weekend and send you some information.

      Kind regards Susan

      • Hi Susan

        Looking forward to hearing from you.
        Where was the location of the James & Frances 50th Anniversary photo? Ryde, Wyong or elsewhere?

        Regards
        Helen

      • Hi Helen, I will be in touch later this week. The Anniversary photo would have been taken on the Gascoigne family properties at Ryde/Putney.

  2. Hi Susan, I have tried to contact you re Tom and Roy Gascoigne for Ryde Goes to War project but my email to you bounced. Could you contact me, please.
    Thanks
    Helen

  3. Hi Susan,My brother Kim and I migrated to Western Australia in 1972 and have traced our “Gascoigne’s” back to a farming community in Holby,Leicestershire cica 1650.
    As we to are doing a family tree I was wondering if the Aussie Gascoigne’s were related to us………….your information is great but no doubt like you,we always need to know more.
    Wishing you a Great day Best Regards…Steven Gascoigne,mullaloo,western Australia(but born in melton Mowbray,leicestershire)

    • Hi Steven, I haven’t found any of my GASCOIGNEs in Leicestershire. Our line are also in farming and agriculture and for many generations back to before 1728 all living in Little Horwood, Buckinghamshire.
      Did you mean Hoby, Leicestershire (between Asfordby and Thrussington)?

      I will have a look back and see if I can find a GASCOIGNE connection to Leics.
      I do have some BUCK ancestors who come from around Melton Mowbray, Ab Kettleby Cum Howell, Loughborough and Lutterworth.

      Kind regards Susan
