From Steve Cherry on 20th August 2009
I have Sir Bernard Spilsbury on my family tree with his family, as many other Spilsburys. John Spilsbury (1739) born in Worcester was the inventor of the Jigsaw Puzzle, his brother Jonathan (1737) was a famous portrait painter who has painting in the National Portrait Gallery and his daughter Maria has paintings in the Tate. Another John Spilsbury on my tree born 1628, married Hannah Hall, daughter of John Hall and Susannah Shakespeare who was daughter of William Shakespeare. All these above plus many more are on my family tree which can be found on http.stevecherry.tribalpages.com Sir Bernard Spilsbury was born in 35 Bath Street, Leamington Spa at his fathers Chemist shop, there is still a Chemist shop on Bath Street which is near the Leamington Priors Parish Church, where the family attended, before moving to London, also it is where I go to ,also I maintain the website there. www.allsaintsleamington.org.uk
