I have just begun to research the family name Dockerill. And yes, this is a great site, however, I cannot find a differential spelling of Docwra or similar. I, too, have traced to Cambridgeshire - to Randall Dockerill in Melbourn 1558. I just wonder where the Dockerills were before Cambridge.

Hi, I am a greatgrand-daughter of Annie Edith King (nee Dowcra), who was born on 29 Aug 1864 at 169 Hampstead Road, Pancras, Middlesex to Charles Whitsey Docwra and Elizabeth Docwra (nee Powell).

1. A constant "typing" error I have found in family trees is the death year of Annie Edith King (nee Docwra) it is usually shown as 1943 when in fact it was 1947 as per Death Cert NSW Registry No. 09393/1947; Ryerson index; and Sydney Morning Herald Thur Apr 3, 1947 pg 24 Death Notice; Fri Apr 11,1947 pg 13, Legal Notices re Will;

2. Does anyone know of other siblings, parents of Charles Whitsey Docwra. b. 1820's c.

Will be most appreciative of any relative information

Hi Margaret,
I am in contact with another of their descendants in Australia, and I have some info re the line in the UK. If you would like to contact me directly via the admin@ address here I will share what I have and put you in touch with the other descendant.
Best wishes,
Anne (site admin)

Msg #152 has incorrect info. It should read Reginald Docwra born 1901-Died 1977 Ashford Kent. Marrried Edith Obery who lived in London Islington. Their daughter Beryl Jean Docwra, born abt 1924, married Raymond Colley Their Son Charles A R Colley. I am interested in Docwra's who may be related, also Colley's. I am related to Edith.

This is a message for David Docwra, Brighton. Dear David, I have lost touch with your sister Carol. She was my best friend in Canada and I know she is ill. Please can you give me some news of her. Thanks.

Hi Monty, so sorry not to have replied before but only just found your message. I am so sorry to tell you that Carol died June 2 with myself and both her children at her side. She did not suffer any pain and really kept her spirits up till very near the end. If you wish to contact me I should be pleased to give you any more details you like. Regards David

Hi Monty, so sorry not to have replied earlier but only just found your message. I regret to say that sadly Carol died 2 June last year. I and both Natalie and Simon were with her at the end. We had tried to contact everyone she knew at the time so sorry if we missed you. Regards David.

Hello Monty, regrettably I have only just found this post and am so sorry to have to tell you that sadly Carol died last June. Of course you may have heard this already as Natalie, her daughter, and I tried to let everyone in her address book know. If not I can only apologise for letting you know this sad news so late. She didn't suffer and the end was quick for which we were all thankful. Regards David
