My names is Michael Smith, my mother was Phyllis Alice Joy, the daughter of Charlie Joy. Albert Joy was my great grandfather. My mother Phyllis Joy married Thomas Smith also of Reigate. Brian Joy was kind enough to take me up Sheepwalk several years ago. Would love to hear from any member or information on the Joy family. Please respond to email address below. Thank you.
