It is difficult to know where to go next in posting this project. The STOCK section in my ring binder took a huge detour round a family of long lost cousins before going back to earlier generations. The order in which I unearthed information was something like a detective story at the time but is hardly relevant all these years later.
So, this week I will introduce my paternal grandfather Ernest Albert SHARP who linked the SHARP family to the STOCK family when he married Daisy Agnes STOCK on 3 January 1927.
One of my early ports of call in researching the SHARP branch of the family was my Aunt Sylvia, Granddad’s daughter from an earlier marriage. She has since collaborated with Frenchay Museum who have a page on their website devoted to Granddad.
