Hello. Does anyone have a photo they can put on here of Johnny Wollaston, and tell me what year he was born?And does anyone know which liner he joined as a band leader? I did read that he died about 5 years ago but sadly I can't trace him in the births, deaths and marriages. I did try to trace him on the Isle of Man a few years ago, but again sadly I had missed him by a couple of years. It might be possible that I am - or should I say was - related to him. Thank you.

My Dad's cousin is a Woollaston and there have been a few comments from my dad and his cousin (David Pearce) and Michael (?) Woollaston. I will tell my Dad to check the details and maybe contact you/post a reply here!

Oopps it's Wollaston, sorry misspelt! My dad (David Pearce) is actually Johnny Wollaston's nephew, not cousin. I know he ended up in West Witterings, Sussex. If you type Syd Dean or Wollaston in the search box at the top of the home page, you will find a lot of info about him and his son, my Dad's cousin Michael. Good Luck!

 I'm so glad I found this site. Keep up the good work- I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say great blog. Thanks, a definite great read.

To Malcolm Wollaston and to Claire Townsend - hi. Firstly to Claire (2nd cousin?) - thanks for adding info to this page, and apologies for being slow finding this thread, and thanks to David for alerting me to it. Hi Malcolm. As one of Johnny's sons, I'm obviously intrigued :-) I can tell you that Johnny did a couple of trips on the Canberra. If you'd like photos etc, or to exchange info (I hope you do) please get in touch. I'm not sure we're allowed to put email addresses on this site, but you'll find me on LinkedIn or Facebook - making sure you're speaking to the Edinburgh Michael Wollaston! Cheers

Dear Sarah,  I think it is your Birthday today,  if memory serves me well Sunday, the 12th October! Well a " Very Happy Birthday " to you. How is your memory ? This is Caroline 
(Vigor)  from number 35 Montpelier Crescent.  Pauline (my mother, who sadly died last year) was friends with Lionel and Betty - your father and mother.  I went on to good old Google and here I am !  Lovely, lovely photos of your father with his faithful cigar.  And what about your brother Chrisopher ?   So so much to chat about.  I remember your beautiful Persian Cat named "Jimmy", and do your remember " Piglet" my VERY first guinea pig that came via Auntie Jean and her son 'Googie'  !!  Photographs in your front garden and on the Green in our tutu's. Many more wonderful happy memories. I do hope this is the right email address for you. It would be great to be in touch with you again.  Have a wonderful Birthday.  Lots of love,  Caroline Vigor (now Collins).
