This regards my great great great paternal grandfather James Shelley, I have very limited information about his existence (born approx 1852, died approx 1913, married Alice King and had at least one son: Bertram on Sep 25 1892).

The dates of birth and death are estimates, no recorded date of marriage, no idea of who the parents are and if he had any siblings.

 

Thank you for your time
