Biography

England flag
Gilly Wood was born in England.
en
This user is a native speaker of English.
Template:User

Gilly is the daughter of Brigadier Lionel Johnson Wood, C.B.E. Her 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 their 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 Glenfield 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.

Digital Afterlife

19th January 2018

In the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up having to be deleted. In the event of my death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of my family members or to any of the other wonderful WikiTreers who have collaborated with me.

My own personal profile will be left to Eowyn and Julie or if they are not available then to any such trusted WikiTree Leaders to tend and weed. It is often said the camera does not lie - well it does in this case because in the Private View of my Profile (that will be open after my death) -my eyes are shown as brown - but they are not brown they are most definitely blue.
