My 'Green' researches have taken me back to Norfolk, UK, particularly around the Hassingham area. I can't quite work out how John Green (a continuous family Christian name) came to own half the land in the area.

I can get back continuously to about 1685 but the trail seems to be cold, though that John Green (probably married a Mary, maiden name unknown) could have been from Runham.

My grandmother was Ethel Jane Anson nee Green, daughter of William Charles Green (abt 1860- 1944) and Mary Jane Green nee Rule (1862-1953). She was born in Marong, Victoria, Australia. I know she was one of a large family, but the only sibling I have been able to trace is Helen (Nelly) Irene (1894-1997). I'd welcome any information that fills in the gaps.

Yes, they are the right people. Who is the Anzac?

Regarding the Polsons, I am not aware that any of my direct ancestors emigrated to Australia, but I have only traced them back as far as my great great grandfather, and I have not traced all of the children so it is entirely possible. My great grandfather was Daniel Polson (1848-1918) and my great great grandfather was Alexander Rose Polson (1823-1904)

posted by M Polson
The Anzac is John George Green

I'm interested in joining the Green name study. My earliest known ancestor is William Green b. 1790 in either New Brunswick, Canada or Aroostook County, Maine. This Green family lived right on the border between the 2 countries starting in the late 1700s. My ancestor is possibly the descendant of loyalists who came to New Brunswick after the Revolutionary War.

I'd like to join the Green name study. My 2nd great grandfather was Wm Robert Green born about 1854 and died about 1900. I have only been able to find one census on him and no other information. The one census says he was born in Missouri, and his family lived in the St. Clair County area. I hope by following this project I might be able to find some info.

My great grandmother is Lottie Pearl Barrett (Green) Gibbs (1895-1954) who married my great grandpa John Charles Gibbs (1894-1951) She was adopted by her grandparents Norman Barrett 1835-1918) and Charlotte Barrett (1835-1926) Her mother’s (Evalina Nora Barrett 1874-1897) parents. However she is of her father’s blood (she is William Charles Green’s daughter) and we have hit a brick wall with no further info on him. The area my Green family is from is Dickenson, Franklin County, New York, USA. This is where great grandma Lottie was born

I also have a Green(e) line: Cynthia "Siddy" Green(e) married to Ezekiel Brooks but they did not live together permanently. They had one son: Ezekiel Marion Brooks who married Catherine Amelia Letha Jane Byrd. 2nd Ezekiel Brooks moved his family to McKinney, Texas in 1892 selling the OLD "William Brooks" homeplace to a "Henry Hill". Lots of Brookes are buried on this property (Once the Brooks' Cemetary/now called Henry Hill Cemetary). Thank You.
I'd like to join your Green Name Study. Thanks! My husband and I each have a Green line.
