The picture of Commonwood House, Chipperfield in Lost Photos:
One is of William and Cissy Allen of Commonwood House.
William was :
William Edward Allen, of Commonwood House, Chipperfield, co. Hertford whose 1st son, William Edward David Allen, OBE, (d. 18 Sep 1973) mar. 6 Dec 1922 (div. 1933) Lady Phyllis Edith King (b. 19 Mar 1897; d. 3 Dec 1947). She was the 2nd daughter of

I have pictures taken at Commonwood House during 1920s or 30s of people (probably family and staff) on my Flickr page:

Re: McCartney Family Tree

Very interesting site.

This is a message for User 474.

My name is Carmel McCartney.
I am a native of Gortnaghey, Dungiven, County Derry.
There was a post on a Gortnaghey Website stating that your Grandfather, Henry was born in 1894 in Gortnaghey, Dungiven.
Since Gortnaghey is only a wee hamlet, I feel that your Grandfather must be related to my Grandfather, Michael McCartney, whose Father was Charles McCartney.
Any information you can give me would be very much appreciated. Many thanks. Carmel
