    • Hello Julie,Thank you for answering.Newman Augustus Herbert was my mothers father.Her name was Norma Emily Herbert and she was born in 1921 in Perth.I have my grandfather and grandmothers marriage certificate but the only photos I have of them together is their wedding photo.If you would like a copy of it I could send you one.Do you live in Western Australia because if you do there is a museum in Claremont called the Mrs Herbert school.It is where Ann Herbert taught the children of the pensioner guards.They also thought her name was Ann Blake.Who told you my grandfather's father was called Willis, and when did his mother die.I could never find a death for her to fit the story my mother was told.The only one I could find died in Perth in 1930.I have done a tree on the Herbert and Hunt family and will send you a copy if you would like it.

      I think you will find John Thomas husband of Louisa Herbert was Nana's uncle and their children were her cousin's.Nana had a diary she wrote in all the time and in it she said Horace and his wife Nancy his daughter and Harriet's son Alex had been to see her in 1960.Yes I live in Brisbane.I have four brothers and Paul the eldest lives in Crows Nest Qld.So does David .Douglas lives in Adelaide and Graham lives in Coolum.Douglas was over in Perth late last year.He goes over every so often for a Navy reunion.It a shame I didnt know you then because he could have gone to see you.Paul turned 65 in January and we all went up to Crows Nest to surprise him.
      I have attached copys of the letters for you to read.You should see if you can find Leah's children.


      Thank you so very much for the photo's Julie.How did you get the one of my Nana and my mother as a baby with Leah.Do you know anything about the Metcalfe family at all.My Nana was Ethel Metcalfe and I think John Thomas Metcalfe was her Uncle.I sent a lot of time trying to find out about her father to see if he fitted in.I joined Genes reunited over a year ago now and I sent a message to just about every Herbert on it but they were all the wrong Herbert's.I am so glad I found you .All the photos I have here are my Nana's family it good to see the Herbert's.Thank you again you have made my day.


      Hello Stephen,I have been looking at your tree again and noticed that it said Leah Herbert the Daughter of Jacob and Kathleen Herbert is still living.I have been trying to find any members of her family but have had no luck.I have a letter Leah wrote to my mother after my Grand mother died and also one her mother wrote to my nana when her mother died in England.I have been trying to find out what the connect was between my grand mother and John Thomas Metcalfe.I kind of think he could have been her uncle .Who is it that has given you all the Herbert imformation because I would love to get in touch with them.They could proable fill me in on a lot of stuff about my Grandfather Newman Augustus.My mother never said anything about his father.As far as she knew he didnt know who he was.Mum allway said his mother Maria died of same after he was born because they wouldnt let her marry his father.I would love to know the truth.If you can help me please get in touch.
