[30 JAN 97]

Hello from Iowa, USA.
We have a friend who lives in Coventry by the name of Graham Mills. Hopefully he can find out that we are on-line and email back to us in some timely fashion. We will enjoy reading more about your fine city and try to understand about your lifestyle. If we can supply information about Iowa or the midwestern USA, just ask and we'll try to answer your questions.

I am looking for any information on my greatgrandfather Edward Child (born 1850-1865) who lived outside Coventry in a place called Breaud (spelling could be incorrect). His wife's maiden name was Mary Wyles. He ran a bakery and his son William, who emigrated to Canada around 1900, was my grandfather. I would appreciate any info.
Thank you very much!

Great Site! As a an American that frequently visits Coventry, I find having an available datatbase on Coventry very useful for keeping up to date with what is new in and around Coventry. Anyone know about anything new happening in Wyken? Any information would be greatly appreciated as it is long way to Coventry from San Diego, California.

Thanks, Roony <>

Hi, My name is Mary Graham (nee Mccullagh). I am also originally from Coventry and have just found you guys!!! I attended Cardinal Wiseman Girls School from 1977-1982. I now live in the Caribbean, in a place called the Turks and Caicos Islands ( I know you have never heard of them, nobody ever has). I am now a teacher out here and have lived here for 4 years. My husband is also from Coventry, Anthony Graham (ex Coventry City player). He is originally from Allesley and I am from Bell Green. If there is anyone out there who either remembers us or would just like to say hi to a couple of old Coventarians, then please drop us a line at Wonderful to find you guys.

PS I'm not sure if this will help anyone to remember us but we both worked at Daimlers bar in the De Vere for a few years, my husband was the manager there. Here's hoping!

Excellent stuff to see Coventry has a Home Page. I was born there in 1970. I now live in Brisbane, Australia. I have been back twice. I still have relatives who live in Coventry. What a place to live.

Visiting your website from Chicago, IL. I was looking into information regarding Warwickshire when I can across this site.

I have been looking specifically for genealogical tidbits on my family (Wootton) who came from Weston-under-Wetherly (a wide spot in the road between Leamington Spa and Rugby) to America at the turn of the century.

Anyone reading this know of any Woottons (are you one too?) in the Warkwickshire and Coventry area? Also any local genealogy or church/official record info sources would be very helpful.

Cheers :)

My name is Alan Tovey. I was a Bablake student just after the war. We now live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I would like to hear from anyone in Coventry, or who remembers me or my wife Margaret (nee McBeth).

[18 JAN 97] Monastery of Whitefriars

My name is Timothy Woods from Knoxville Tennessee. I enjoyed visiting the website for the town of Coventry and I'm interested in learning about the history of the monastery of Whitefriars. I would be greatful to anyone willing to share any knowledge about this Carmelite Friary and information specifically about seven books discovered hidden within the walls of the gatehouse of the monastery.

Thanks very much

I love visiting the CWN guestbook, my name is Joyce Edgens (nee Meiklejohn). I moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1968 with my parents, I have not been back to Coventry since but would love to visit. I will keep visiting the Coventry homepage as often as possible.

I browse your pages daily from California.

I attended Barrs Hill Girls Grammar from 1974-1979. I am curious how other school mates are doing. If anyone remembers me or even just attended Barrs Hill, I would love to hear from you. My name at that time was Raj (Mann) (Kaur); I went by both last names when it was of convenience to me. I would like to hear from some teachers out there also. Please email me at Look forward to this new adventure.

Hello Coventry,

I was not born in Coventry, but played rugby for Coventry RFC from 1981-85. I moved to Dallas, TX, USA in 1985 and have resided here ever since. Is there anyone online who played for Coventry during this time? The Youth team was especially good, coached by Brodders and Baz Dorehty (Caludon Castle).

Enjoyed the web pages, missing Coventry,

I was very impressed to read of the network you have set up in the Coventry area. My Dad's late cousin, Peter Wakeford, formerly of Royal Leamington Spa, was quite active in social justice causes in the area, including the Fellowship of Reconciliation and the anti- nuclear movement, at Coventry Cathedral, before moving to Little Melton, Norfolk. I wish you all the best.
