Are you connected to this family? It appears so.

My mother was Evah (you spell it Eva which is incorrect) May Holloway in the reference below, born November 19, 1911 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. My Father was John Carl Holloway. (Just a total coincidence they had the same last name when they married. They were not related. They were married in Spokane, Washington in December 1932. I was born in California in December 1933. My mother Evah May Thomas Holloway died in Long Beach California 1n 1966. My Father John Carl Holloway died in Portland, Oregon in 1976. One correction below. my first cousin Terry Winward listed below is now also deceased.

Comments: Don

Hope you are well.

We have been in touch before and as I am re-looking at my FH I came across your page. I am not sure if you have my latest email address as these change over time. I never really published my tree to my satisfaction but having purchased Family Historian it has given me a 'new lease of life'.

One thing I can ask you to look at is it Anna or Hanna (married John Knibbs in 1814). I seem to have a reference to the latter.

He worked as a Sawyer around Toowoomba in Queensland, married there, went to Western Australia sleeper cutting for the Trans Continental Railway, and then went back to Toowoomba.
I particularly liked the touch of having a Memorial Roll as part of your site. At present I am working on a similar setup with my family files. Like you, my family and ancestry has made a considerable donation to peace. Thankfully, so far, none of my descendants has served. Maybe we will have an outbreak of peace one day.
Congratulations on your work.

He has written five self published books on Sompting and the families there, though he has not looked into our family history.

Name: Janet Hoskins <private>
Date: 2011-12-15
Where are you from? Surrey, England. U.K.
Are you connected to this family? yes
Comments: My (paternal) Grandmother was Phyllis Ida Knibbs and my Grand Aunt was Madge A Knibbs (her sister). I didn't meet Madge until after my father passed away in 1996. It's only recently I decided to research the family tree, and wished I had asked more questions regarding the relatives (as we all do when it's too late and no-ones left!). The Knibbs that are my nearest relatives tell a great story - with thanks to your documentation, it's superb, and has filled in a lot of gaps. I'm stuck on the Hoskins side now, and have only managed to trace my 2nd great grandfather Charles Hoskins 1817-1868 but that's as far as any clear info goes! So I'll keep on researching - in hope. Many thanks.

Name: Ron Oakenfull 
Date: 2011-10-26
Where are you from? Perth. Western Australia
Are you connected to this family? Possibly
Comments: I have just found a printout from way back in Mar, when I wasn't much engaged in family tree matters. It shows that the 1851 census had a William Knibbs age 36 Town Crier & Shoemaker, of 18 Best Lane All Saints Canterbury. The rest of his family were Oakenfulls - wife Mary and six children. Also present was a Joseph Pond who was married to William Oakenfull's sister Caroline. In the 1861 census William changed to an Oakenfull but retained all the attributes of the 1851 William. When I looked at the 1851 census many months later, having forgotten the printout, that William now Oakenfull, at the same address. Any ideas what is the situation? I would add that my family have been connected with the boot and shoe trade for centuries.

Many names seem familiar, but my Gran died when I was 7. She's owed £10 from James, & Uncle Ron patented machinery for Courtaulds.
Weird, Genetics! I can see my Grandfathers face in many?

Name: Robert William LaFraugh 
Date: 2010-09-12
Where are you from? Gig Harbor, WA
Are you connected to this family? yes
Comments: I know the following, but knowledge is limited because my father, Ross W. LaFraugh entered the US in about 1927-30 without acquiring papers so I did not know of his past until I was 35 (about 1971). His father was Frederick and grandfather, William both born in Ontario as far as I know. It is thought that Frederick and my father came to Saskatchewan somewhere around 1905 as his sister Fern LaFraugh Welker was born in Ontario in 1904 and I am told my father was born in Yellow Grass, SK in 1907. Please contact me if you can help with my ancestry.

I just wish I was as orderly about recording everything as you are Don, my notes are so cryptic even I can't read them. This site is an object lesson for all people just beginning in genealogy!

Comments: I was really intrigued by the sheer size of your family tree. It must have taken you so long to compile. Looking quickly through the names I spotted Oman. This is my maternal grandmothers maiden name. Maud Oman born 1884 in Bermondsey. Her father John William Oman was born 1853 in Newcastle Northumberland. Her grandfather Thomas Oman born abt 1824 in Manchester died 1890 in Bermondsey. It is quite incredible how people moved around in those days. I shall certainly look up your site again, it is fascinating.

Where are you from? (The Knibbs Part) Bucks, UK
Are you connected to this family? I think so, Yes :D
Comments: My surname may be Lloyd-Knibbs, but I'm from the first generation to have it (my Mum's maiden name was Lloyd, my dad's surname Knibbs, they joined them after their marriage.) My nickname is still 'Knibbsy', so when we were looking each other up on Google, my friend just put 'Knibbs'.

As I said, the names been passed down on my father's side, and apparently I'm not the first in the line to have 'Knibbs'/'Knibbsy' as a nickname. I've never met anyone outside the family with the surname, but was led to believe it was possibly of Welsh origin before the family moved to England.


As far as I know, the family has been in South East England (I live in Milton Keynes with my parents and siblings, my paternal grandfather in St. Neots, other members of my father's family around Stratford-upon-Avon) for as long as anyone can remember.

Seeing this website has made me think we must fit into the web somewhere, since it's such an uncommon surname. If anyone thinks they could link into my family they contact me (or if they know Knibbses from the same general area.)

Comments: What an amazing web site. I'd be fascinated to know more about how many other descedants of Knibbs have fraternal twins? I know that my great grandmother, Alexandra Knibbs was a twin (of a boy/girl pair) and that there are another pair of twins from the same branch of the family (I've seen the photo of Florence and Frank) and I, for my sins am a mother of twins! They say that dizygotic twins skips a generation and often comes from the mother's maternal grandfather, which seems odd, but that's how it has come to me! Anyone else have a similar situation?

Nevertheless, thanks again for the additional information and what is a very interesting web-site
