Rob, hi. For twenty years a family of the same surname as me lived four doors away from us, their name was never ever mentioned or never came into our conversation at any time so I thought they were no relation until . . . paulguy mentioned them on this forum. Turned out my grandad and his grandad were first cousins, both born in the 1870's. Something in the past had split them wide apart. So, many thanks to you - mystery solved. Regards, Kaga.

Well well, what a fascinating thing to learn. I'm so pleased that this forum and its amazing members have once again helped to solve a mystery, thank you for letting us know.

Kaga, when I was in Southampton hospital at the beginning of the year, on the first night there the chap in the next bed asked if I was from Coventry (I still have the accent after 40 years away.) It seemed that he lived in Cov as a youngster, in Grange Rd., Longford and his name was Simpson. I think he was a motorbike fanatic at that time the way he spoke of his youth. Another relation?

Argon, I would almost think so, but I left Coventry over fifty years ago so have lost touch with my relatives. but thanks for the thought.
