: I'm searching for any information on the ancesters of Frank Frewin Winkfield, he was born approx 1880 and was in the navy, with his brother Henry Reginald Winkfield. they took lodgings in Manchester whilst in the navy. Henry is my g grandad
Hmm, I haven't come across Frank Frewin Winkfield before, I couldn't find either Frank or Henry on the 1881 census, and a look at the 1901 census doesn't seem to show much either.
Is the Frewin in Frank's name used as a middle name rather than a surname I wonder? Frewin does occasionally pop up as a christian or middle name.
Frank and/or Henry may have been registered on the census forms as Wingfield perhaps. There seemed to be many more Wingfields than Winkfields, it might be worth searching for the possible variants of the surname.
Having said that, I did find a picture and some information on Frank Frewin and Henry on the Internet, but I suspect this is either your home page, or you have seen it before. The page is here
There is also a web message board dedicated to Winkfield here. It may be worth posting a message there if you haven't already done so.
I will let you know if I hear of either Frank or Henry in future.
