I’m pleased to report that we now have cousin Debbie and her children’s full names and dates of birth on the descendant’s chart, as well as Darren’s full details; see them here – with many thanks to Debbie!

Updated Descendant’s Chart:


Farewell Colin

It is very hard to have to write this post – my cousin Colin died on the 14th March 2011, aged just 43. His funeral is being held on Monday in London.

I have updated the family tree, and will post some pictures of Colin soon. We will all miss you dreadfully Colin – I will look for you in the skies and moon.


Farewell Uncle Ken

It is with great sadness that I pass on news of the loss of another Jamison – my uncle Kenneth (Ken), born 5/10/1941 in Annahilt, County Down, died 29/12/2010 in Mill Hill, London.

Ken was my father’s brother, and although we didn’t have too much contact with him, it is with a great sense of loss that we mark his passing.

I attended his funeral together with the family of my father’s other brother, my Uncle Harold. It was sad to think that Harold may be the last Jamison of his generation left now, as we have lost touch with the last two of his sisters.

Ken “the Crack” (for his great sense of humour and his tall, funny tales) Jamison.
5/10/1941 – 29/12/2010.

Wonderful Purcell Pictures and Updates!

From: 22nd September 2009

The home and gallery pages have been updated with a beautiful picture of my paternal gradmother, Eliza McCurdy Purcell – we had no pictures of our grandmother at all, so this is a wonderful addition.

Many thanks to Colin and Irene for providing a copy, and lots of fantastic and new family history, including a wonderful picture of my great grandmother, Jane Purcell. Thank you so much for introducing us to newly discovered relatives.
