G'day it's Jim from NZ again, just to say the new site
looks great. Still trying to save our pennies for another trip back, will continue to
search this site for new information on your neat city. If anyone there remembers Terry
(Bill) Beard, my father-in-law and mate, ex Thombridge Rd, sadly he passed away on 15 May
97, God be with him.

This site is very interesting, give me lots of information
- where to go, what to do, etc. which I desperately need being new in the place. I find
the jobs and careers very useful.
I am Beng White originally from Manila, Philippines. I
moved to Coventry in March 1997 to be with my husband, John. I was here last year but did
not see much as we were visiting for 3 weeks. I am now here for good, and with this site,
I would easily find my way around the City.
My husband and I have added this site to our favourites,
and will be visiting quite often.

[22 JUN 97] History from the 1600's
I am conducting some genealogical research and would be
interested in any history regarding Henry Sewell or William Sewell, both were former
mayors of Coventry in the Parish of St Michael.
Thank you for any assistance.

G'Day from WA!
What a great site. As an old Coventry kid [born 1964] it
was nice to discover CWN, even if it was a bit late.
My family and I migrated in 1980, to Bunbury, Western
Australia. I attended Cardinal Wiseman Girl's School, Potters Green Road, and would love
to hear from anyone from this era.
Keep up the good work, love the live video coverage.

[12 JUN 97] Plant Family
I have been researching my family in the Coventry area and
have discovered records from St Michaels Parish showing the Plant family back to the late
1700's. They were in the textile or ribbon industry (all except my GG Grandfather, Walter
Plant) who is shown as a glazier. As the name is a French derivative do you know if there
are any records that could tie in to the Hugenots who settled in that area. I understand
they were mainly in the textile and glass or ceramic trades. Any help would be

You're lookin good. I drop by once a week, to check on our

Please keep up the good work

[8 JUN 97] Spicer Family
My name is Mike Spicer. I live in Bracebridge, Ontario,
CANADA. I am doing research into my family history in Coventry and would like to contact
relatives I might have there. If your surname is 'SPICER' or you are somehow related to
this name in any way, I would very much like to hear from you.
My great-grandfather was ARTHUR JOHN SPICER, born in
Coventry, 3 April 1874. He was married to Gertrude Berrick, of 37 Bracebridge Rd,
Erdington. He died November 1, 1917 aboard the HMS Good Hope.
I look forward to your response.

Hello, my name is NIALL STRAW. I emigrated to Canada with
my parents a long time ago.... 1964 to be exact and we settled in Ontario. I went to
Attleborough Primary School and then went to King Edward VI Grammar School until I went to
Malta with my parents. On returning I returned to KEGS for one year.
Since coming to Canada I have earned 3 degrees and am
presently the principal (headmaster) of a Full Service School close to Exeter, Ontario...
that's just north of London.
I am married with 4 children 20, 18, 18, (yes twins!) and
I have been back to Nuneaton several times to visit with
relatives and one or two friends whom I still keep in contact with. I have obviously lost
contact with many.... but perhaps this is the opportunity to attempt to contact them
again... if you still recognize the name that is!!
I will be coming to England in August and if you respond to
this ...perhaos we can meet again.
I am particularly interested in contacting MICK FORD who
also went to KEGS... his dad was an alderman in Nuneaton... owned a milk delivery business
I believe. Also the first love of my life ... JUDITH WALTON who went to the girls' grammar
school in England.
Whatever happened to David Mee or Geoff Bucknall????
