Gilly's involvement in Genealogical Research began with encouragement and assistance from her older brother, a Professional Genealogist in London.

She was born in 1947 in Sussex, England. The family moved to Austria in 1950 to join her father who was there commanding troops. In Austria they lived first in Millstatt, Spittal, and later moved to Vienna, after which they returned to Sussex, England before moving to Claygate in Surrey.

After their home in Surrey was sold they said our goodbyes and from Southampton embarked on the RMS Rangitoto bound for New Zealand via the Panama Canal visiting Curacao and Pitcairn Island on route. (The original intended route via the Suez had to be abandoned in view of the unrest in that region at the time).

By the time she had reached her teens Gilly had attended a total of nine different schools!

She was married to Gordon Noel Elliston as his 2nd wife. They were married at the Genfield Salvation Army Citadel in Auckland, New Zealand. Their daughter and three grandchildren were born in New Zealand.

Gordon's Profile is here [1]

In 1992, when Hong Kong was leased to Britain, Gilly and her daughter travelled there to stay with Gilly's brother Dick and his wife who lived at that time on the Island in Stanley Bay.

They joined Gilly and her daughter as they travelled from Hong Kong to Thailand, [although on separate planes], first to Pattaya, then to Bangkok after which Gilly and her daughter journeyed on to England.

In 2004 Gilly bought a house in Lancashire. In 2009 she bought a Static Caravan at Riverside Caravan Centre in Bognor Regis, Sussex and she travelled back and forth between England and New Zealand.

Hello Gilley - dang, I hate to keep throwing this statement at you or anyone - BUT, I have Not seen How to Sign the Honor Code. What step have I missed? I go to the Page and I see Nothing that says: Sign In or Sign Here.

Is computer jargon that far off for me? I think I have Clicked on about everything on that Page and Nothing has even Looked Like a Spot to Sign in! Am I going Blind? Ralph

Thank you, Gilly, for welcoming me to WikiTree. I've been busy trying to get my profile established and family tree started. I do have ancestors who were participants in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the American Civil War but am not aware of any involved in wars with Native Americans.
