I need to find out more about my great great uncle Arthur John Priest, my grandfather's uncle. [Yes the picture of him on this site has a striking resembalance to my Gramps] I trying to find out whether he ever lived in London? My grandfather's mother [Alice] is a lot younger than "Uncle John" [he was known to the family], I remember when I was younger that the family used to laugh about him as he was like Uncle Albert of "Only fools and horses" because every ship he goes on it sinks! My grandfather doesn't give out much information [He made my family tree hard to do on that side of the family] as there probably been some dispute in the family back then as his mother moved up north. He says she was born in London? so does that mean John might have lived in London for a short time? or did any naval training there... or he stayed behind in Southampton when the Priest family moved to London... I just need to find out correct information...
