RE: New member from the US

Hi Richard,

My apologies, a belated welcome to the website from me.

I'm so pleased that you've joined and very happy to see that some of the kind folks here have already made you welcome too.

In the grand scheme of this huge Oliver family Carole from Australia is a very close relation, by my calculations you're both on the same generation down from Stephen Oliver and your grandparents were cousins:

1. Stephen Oliver b.1802
2. Thomas Oliver b.1847
3. Caroline Oliver b.1885
4. Doris Rowe b.1917
5. Carole

1. Stephen Oliver b.1802
2. Richard Barratt Oliver b.1843
3. Thomas Francis Richard Oliver b.1869
4. Marjorie Eloise b. 1904
5. Richard

Thanks for your note allowing me to share your pictures of Thomas Francis Richard Oliver, these are now in the 'Picture Gallery' which I know so many of the contributors and visitors to this site will enjoy, so thank you again.

Hope we can exchange lots more information on your branch and their line going back over 300 years here in the UK.

Hi Richard

Good to hear from you and welcome. I live in Torquay, Australia and my G-grandfather Thomas Oliver (born 1847) son of Sarah and Stephen, would have been your Richard's younger brother.

Thomas moved from Stonesfield to Birmingham and married there.  My Grandmother Caroline Oliver (born 1885) and her family migrated to Australia early in the 1920s.

If there is anything I can help you with on my side please let me know.  Shane has been a great help to me and I am happy to pass anything on.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Richard

Welcome to the message board! I'm a bit of a gate-crasher round here, as I'm not part of the Oliver clan. However, I'm a genealogy addict and so will happily delve into anybody's family history! It's great to hear that Richard Barrett/Barratt Oliver has descendants. I look forward to finding out more about this bit of the Oliver family tree.

Best wishes

Hi, My name is Richard Ross and I am the grandson of Thomas Francis Richard Oliver who was the son of Richard Barrett/Barratt Oliver. I first made contact through the Stonesfield Website and was then introduced to Shane. I have read some of the postings concerning Richard Barrett Oliver and will attempt to add some detail about the Olivers in Canada after I get things together.

Hope to be in contact soon,
