- Dec 11, 2006Hi,
Have just discovered that my maternal grandmother was born on St Helena
and was wondering if anyone knew of her history. She was born on the
21st July 1871; her mother's name was Elizabeth Everton and her father
was called Edward Roakes (his profession was as a watch repairer).
Interesting she kept her mother's name as her maiden name.
Any information will be appreciated.
