My fathers original name was Eric Halkyard. I have been searching g for our tree and have come up with who I believe were his parents (Harry and Audrey Halkyard) both who died in the 1960s.


Any help would be fantastic. Trying to find anyone who knew or knows him.

You did not say what country, county and  or city the lived in. I found three Harry Halkyards who died in the 1960's. Here they are:    https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVCJ-93PB        https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVC2-3P9L  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVC2-V8YC

Would you happen to know the Audrey's maiden name?  Do you know the year that her son, Eric, was born? Was he born in England?

Thank you for your reply. Just noticed some typos as well.


His family seems to have been from the Oldham area. Lancashire. Yorkshire. England.


I have found Harry and his blood line.

Thank you for that anyway.

What I am trying to find are my uncles I believe I have. From there onwards

But anyway. Harry was supposedly married twice before but I have not been able to confirm any harry marriages being my Harry. He had sons to these previous wives.


(The biggest problem is that my father is a horrible man and a compulsive liar so any info I have. I have had to get on my own because even if I asked then I doubt I'd get the truth)


Thanks again.

I can see it's a while since you first posted this but If you are still looking I can give you some information about Eric's mother Audrey as she was my father's older half sister. Her maiden name was Jones and I believe she was born in Doncaster after the family moved to the area from Wrexham. Like one of the other posters Dad hasn't seen Eric since the early 1970s (New Year's Eve 1971 to be exact, my parent's wedding day) and so couldn't really tell you anything after that but if you want to know any more about Audrey's side of the family in general I'd be happy to fill you in.
