      Dear Wendy:
       
      I have an enormous apology to make.  This week I received an email via the St Helena mailing list re the Grant family as I think you did too.  As I went to answer it I remembered that we had had some correspondence a few years ago and looked it up in my Stroud file.  In there I found an email I don't even remember receiving from you - the one below.  All I can think is that it arrived just at the time my husband was made redundant and my son was on the run up to his GCSEs and I think I filed it away by mistake thinking I had answered it. 
       
      I can find no evidence that I ever answered it.  I am so sorry and I hope you will accept my apologies.
       
      I have to say that, unfortunately, I have not done any more work on my husband's Stroud family and St Helena.  I would love to spend all my time on family history but find I just do not have the time.  What free time I have I have spent working on one side of my mother's family that has proved to be particularly interesting.
       
      Have you found out any more about the Grants and/or Strouds?  I see you asked me if I could fill in either of the two missing blanks in the list of births - have you managed to do that?  Also I see you say you have a photo of a wedding which may have Sarah Stroud in it.  I would love to see a copy if you have it. Sarah was the older sister, by about two years, of my husband's great grandfather, Silas Stroud.  No photos exist of him, so one of Sarah would be the next best thing.
       
      Once again, many, many apologies
      Best regards
      Vivien Chandler

      Dear Vivien

       

      I am sorry I have taken so long in replying to your e-mail. The information I have with regard to Benjamin and Sarah are as follows:- 

      Benjamin Grant (4th January 1841) married a Sarah Stroud (1837) on 15th March 1866 (St Helena)

       

      He died 26th February 1929 (aged 86)  She died 6th July 1905 (aged 68)

      Both died on St Helena

       

      They had six children on the island, as follows:-

       

      A

      Male

      6th May 1868

      B

      Louisa Palmer Grant

      21st January 1870

      C

      Male

      13th February 1872

      D

      Benjamin Edward Grant

      29th July 1873 – 1955

      E

      Frederick Kempthorne Grant

      11th October 1875

      F

      Neville Woodroe Grant

      29th October 1877


      Not sure if you can fill in the blanks of the other children.  Neville Grant was my husband grandfather, he died around 1948, not sure exactly as his mum is not very good with dates and Jeff would have been to young to remember.  I have found most of the family but not all.
       
      I do have a family photo of a wedding of one of the above, I think Sarah may be on it I will check and if she is forward it to you.
       
      Thanks

      I'm sure you know this already, but Benjamin Grant married Sarah Stroud on St Helena in 1866.  She was the sister of my husband's great grandfather, Silas Stroud.  Their father, Stephen Stroud, arrived on the island from the UK in the 1820s.

      I am trying to trace the Grant family tree.  I know Benjamin Grant was the editor/proprietor of the Guardian Newspaper and that his father Charles Grant took him, along with Louisa his mother to the Island in 1842.  Charles was a Sargeant, not sure if it was the st Helen regiment or not.  I have a lot on the family, but unfortunately not where Charles and Louisa went or when they left the island, although I know they did leave.  I have found the children (6 in total) doted all over the world.  I understand that some of the family resided at the Briars when they were on the Island
       
      Has anyone got any information on the family, any help would be gratefully received.
       
      Many thanks
