Seeking My Family - a Memory of Yeovil.

My name is Vivienne. I was born in Yeovil in December 1953. My father was Graham Stanley George Adams born March 1926. He had four brothers: Stewart Roland Adams (Married Phyllis), Maurice Escort Adams (Married Jean Hallett, children Susan and Dawn), Norman Adams (Married Sheila, child Kim) and Cyril Adams (Married Betty, children Judith and another daughter name unknown).

My father died in 1963. Stewart had died previously and Norman died a couple of years after my father. All five brothers had polycystic kidney disease and were not expected to live long lives. They were tradesmen in Yeovil and some of the brothers were in the Navy for some years. Their father was Roland Adams and their mother was Sylvia Eileen Wiltshire known as "Marsie". She married again after Roland's death to a man named Christopher.

My mother June, father and I lived in a commission flat in St Anne's Garden's, Yoevil until 1957 when we migrated to Australia. We lost contact with the family after my father's brother, Norman passed away.

If anyone can help me locate any of the family, it would be most appreciated. I have tried many times to find them without success. Please email me at if you have any information. Thank you.
