My Wallis ancestors hail from Overseal in South Derbyshire, as well as Appleby Magna.
I’ve only recently started looking into this side of the family.
My paternal grandmother was Florence Sarah Wallis, known as Sarah, born in Gorsey Leys in 1906.
Her parents were George S Wallis born in Appleby Magna in c1879 and Agnes Clamp born in Donisthorpe in 1881. Sarah had four siblings, Elsie, James William, Agnes (known as Aggie) and Margaret. Sarah married William Frederick Freeman in 1932 and had one child, Eric (1937-1965)
