Seeking origin of my name
My middle name is Templar, something I have passed down to my children and grand-children.
Looking at the 1930 Kelly's Directory for Bristol, I've noticed that there were approximately 20 Templar/Temple families, mostly living in the Dings and Bedminster areas, not far from the Blitzed Temple church.
This has got to be more than a coincidence and suggests that the Templar families stayed put in the area.
Looking at the 1938 version of Kelly's I discovered that some of the families had migrated to Clifton and Sneyd Park.

The numbers of Templar/Temple families had grown by then to approximately 30.
I seem to recall seeing somewhere that the Grand Order of Templars held their annual meeting in St Mary Redcliffe church.
Do any BT readers have any more information about this?
