Brentford Dynasties - Neville
IntroductionThe Neville family moved to Brentford from Buckinghamshire about 1810 and about 3 generations lived in Brentford until the 20th century. They were in trades of market gardening, coopering and tailoring. Towards the end of the 19th century a few of them including my great grandfather Fred Neville became teachers in Brentford and Ealing. Fred Neville retired to Whitstable, Kent along with his brothers and sisters, Joseph, Amy and Augusta. Fred built his own cottage in Whitstable which is still there I believe.

In December 2015 Dianne of Australia got in touch with more details of her branch of the family. Joseph Onion Neville appears in Alister's notes above:
Dianne adds 'I remember as a child my grandmother's father Alfred Mison Neville and some of his sisters. Some of Alfred Onions Neville's children I have had contact with over the years, being Joseph William Neville who married Lydia Lambert. They had 8 children. Their immediate descendants live in Brisbane and I have met several of them'.
