My Golbys were travellers/gypsies travelling between Dorking in Surrey and Hawkhurst in Kent during the 18th and 19th centuries. It is possible that they were actually genuine gypsies although that has not been verified. If any one has any connections to Golbys from this (wide) area I would love to know - I have quite a bit of info already. Anne

Hello Tarisa, my mother taught at Craft school in the late 1930s. One of her pupils was Johnny Golby. I have just found some photos of a visit they made to Johnny Golby's farm in the 1950s. Is this your family? If so I will scan the photos and send them to you. LT

This is directed at Lois Wilson: I **think** that I am descended from Bertie and Hannah - I have a different spelling of her last name and both of them born in NY, NY but it seems likely that these are my great, great grandparents! I am descended through their son Bert. =D Any information that I can give you about this branch I would be happy to and any information that you have about their parents etc I would love to have!
