  1. Sue, I am sure this Henry Reynolds must have been a relative of the ERB Reynolds you mention as being ‘of interest’ here but we are having trouble making the connection and would be v.grateful for any more info you can come up with. ERBR was Edward Robert Butler Reynolds (b 1835 Faringdon) my g-g-grandfather. He was certainly a medical man and an advocate of homeopathy. Similarly, his son Austin, my g-grandfather (b.1867 Islington) and also a surgeon, was himself a frequent patient of Allan Broman in and around 1910. may i thank you in advance for any help you can give!

  2. Hello Sue,
    ERB Reynolds is my great grandfather.
    I have noticed that this post I have read here is several years old.
    I would be very interested if you have any more information on him.
    I have some family history myself if needed.
    Many thanks
    Philip
