I live in Johannsesburg, South African and I am looking for relatives of my grandmother, Winifred Nellie Giles Cowper who was born in Hereford before relocating to Swansea, Wales.

I am searching for relatives of Winifred Lamputt who had three sisters. Evelyn Frances Giles, Hilda Florence Giles and Gwendoline Doris Giles Lamputt. All four daughters were born in Herefordshire between 1894 and 1905.

Their parents were William and Frances Harriet Lamputt [nee Giles]. William and Frances Lamputt were married in 1891.

John Arthur Cowper married Winifred Nellie Giles Lamputt in Swansea on 28 February 1929. They had a single child, my father – John William Giles Cowper

Further reference to the Lamputt family has been obtained through The National Archives and especially the 1939 Register where at that point in time John Arthur Cowper’s family resided at 5 Brynmill Terrace, Swansea, Glamorganshire, Wales. Winifred Cowper died in Swansea in 1953.

I am now searching for all living relatives to the Lamputt and Giles families
