Gosh, I wander if it is the same person...do you have any pics of him...or remember what he looked like. I have his birth certificate here..not sure how my mum landed up with it..but great info...I honestly cant remember him. I was about 2 when he left my mum, Norma (nee Hoggons) and I do know that my mum was expecting my sister Cheryl
He was born 13 April 1928 in Ladybrand. His family must have moved to Umkamaas, Natal some years later. His dad was Dr. John Austin Gill and his mum was Margaretha Elizabeth.
I think from memory, he had a brother called Ian... I have quite a lot of pics here..I am originally from Port Elizabeth myself. We moved to NZ 12 years ago.
Looking forward to hearing from you..will pull out the old photos and scan and hopefully we can share .
It's definately the same Alan Gill!!!!!.......I used to visit him at his mom"s house in Umkamaas. (and his brother"s name is Ian) He married my mom in about 1969/1970 and I was born in 1971. My mom left him before I was even born. As far as I know he also had other children, a son Austin and a daughter Gail........I don"t have any pic"s of him but I still remember what he looks like....sort of!! Can"t seem to open your pic"s, maybe you can email them directly to me? my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I am trying to trace the details of Arthur Charles BROMILOW b 1940 Johannesburg he married Sarah Eve EYES b 1943 Durban. Her father was Charles Leonard EYES born UK 1918 any information I would most grateful. George Johnson.
HI Helen, In reply to my last posting, I have found the surname PARISI and I think this may be connected to Sarah Eve Eyes. I have a number of early photographs of EVE with her mother and would be happy to share with the family. My research is for the family tree of the EYES surname and all the South African connections. Kind regards George.
I do believe Arthur Charles Bromilow is my late Uncle from my mothers side. What information you looking for as his one sister is still alive.
I am also attempting to locate Sarah Eve Eyes (Aunty Eve) and her children Patrick, Dion and Tracey.
Recently you kindly replied to my post on My Heritage site re - Arthur Charles Bromilow. I replied to you question re - information that I was seeking. The information was for the life of Sarah Eve Bromilow nee-EYES and on her father Charles Leonard EYES alias SUMMERS. You replied that EVE had children? Eve would be my cousin as my mother was her father’s sister. I started the EYES family tree just after my mother died in 1989 you hear of various stories at the gathering of relatives. I researched the EYES family since then. I do hope I am able to find further information on the South African link to the EYES family history also any information on Sarah’s father Charles Leonard EYES, and Eves mother Martha Louise?
Hi Helen, My mother was the sister too Sarah EVE Bromilows father . Sarah,s father was Charles Leonard EYES my uncle LEN, I have have done some research in South Africa to trace details about LEN EYES alias SUMMERS. He left Liverpool UK with his partner Myrtle SUMMERS in 1953 for South Africa he was in South Africa previous to this in the South African Navy. I have photographs of EVE as a very young child in her mothers arms in Durban. Eves mother used to write to my aunt Aggie who also was my mothers sister and the sister too Charles Leonard EYES alias SUMMER I would be intrested in any information you have on the family I have Family Tree on Ancestry.co.uk under the name of JOHNSON you are welcome to look at that to see further details. If the family is the correct one I could forward the Photographs if needed, please if further information is need please conntact me my email address is
