Going through a family tree. My great-great-great uncle was Robert Cobbold Perry who died 21/8/1864 at Merstham House, Surbiton, Surry. His mother-in-law (my great-great-great grandmother was Anne Courtnall Edwards, married to Thomas Lincoln Barker, both of Ipswich, Norfolk.

From my window I can see the tomb of your gt gt gt grandparents, Thomas Lincolne Barker and Anne Courtnall Edwards. Please mail me if you would like a photo.


Comment 3

Tim Barker from London posted this comment on Wednesday 12 April 2017 19:05:00.

To Jocelyn of Ipswich, I am simply astonished that someone in sight of my ancestors tomb in Ipswich is looking at a website about a house in Reigate. Yes I would LOVE a photo of my g-g-g-grandparents tomb (I assume it is still in St Margarets). I have some info about the tomb occupants if you have any interest. My email address if the forum bosses will allow, is tim (at) barker (dot) org (dot) uk.

Dear Christine I am researching a tenuous link to the Edwards family tree in Reigate and wonder if you would be kind enough to email me so I may ask a couple of questions regarding Tom Edwards ? Many thanks - Zoe

Lawrence and Sons, 105 Cromwell Road. 1920.

Comment 1

Irene Howlett Lawrence from Redhill posted this comment on Saturday 09 February 2013 11:01:00.

I think my Grandfather and Father are in this photo.So would love a copy of it.I was born at 105 Cromwell Road.Certainly F.G.Lawrence & Sons was also born there and we both still exist!


Comment 2

Barbara Pennell from Truro posted this comment on Thursday 21 February 2013 22:29:00.

Hello Irene. I knew you when I was at Cromwell Road school. I was Barbara Whiting then. I was looking at photos of Meadvale, where I was born, then, browsing through all the very local places, came upon this wonderful picture. I do hope you got a copy from someone.


Comment 3

Keith Fuller from Harrogate,Nth.Yorks. posted this comment on Wednesday 16 July 2014 21:38:00.

The two ladies in the first two comments went to Cromwell Road School and I wondered if the date could possibly match the time I was in the Church Lad's Brigade (St.Mathews Church)and had quite a bit of contact with some of the pupils from the school. This was in the 1947 to 1951 period after which I left school and had to move with my parents back to Sussex. Most names escape me now, but Bob Robinson(and his girlfriend) from a Cromwell Road address,Alan Durrent, and another girl who helped, with her mother at Church Lad's events - Edna Bushnell, from Brook Street(?). I lived in Salfords (Woodside Way) from 1942 until 1951.

I'd love to hear anything about any of them - so many years have passed!!

I have put a group photograph of the C.L.B. Band from c.1947 on the St.Mathews Church part of the web, and welcome any contact.

Regards,

Keith Fuller.

I went to Cromwell Rd primary school in the early 60's. Just visiting UK now and went looking for my old address 21 Station Rd Redhill and of course the school. When did it close? Can anyone fill me in on a bit of history over the past 50 yrs in the area?


Comment 5

Peter Miles from Horsham, West Sussex posted this comment on Saturday 23 December 2017 16:33:58.

I am too interested in past history of this school as I went there from 1957-1964. I have fond memories of the place. It was at first difficult to track-down, as forgot the road it was on, so long ago. Then discovered it was the "Longmead Adult Education Centre". It appears to be sold now (October 2017) to developers? Sad if they knock this very old Victorian School down, has amazing architecture. No doudt the devlopers will vandelise it by knocking it down, seems all boarded-up right now. We had a cake shop right next to the school, selling what they called, Penny Nelson's, what we know as bread pudding ..... hee hee Whatever happened to my old mate Stephen Fenner .... so long ago now mate !! PS. I was also in the Church Lads Brigade in the mid 1960's from what I recall.

my grandfather lived at the house directly behind the lamp post on the right, he probably moved in in the early 20's and moved out in the mid 80's ! I have great memories of this house even though it was bitterly cold during the winter !!

My father in father - law's mother grew up here as daughter of the housekeeper and gardener and he often visited in his childhood in the 1930's. I would love to be able to take him back to visit so if anyone knows how that would be great!


Comment 3

Peter Tucker from Reigate posted this comment on Wednesday 19 October 2011 16:06:00.

@ Sandra Arthurs: if this British history website (www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=42950) is reliable, the Wonham family appear to have owned Wonham Manor only until 1646.


Comment 4

Ashley Wonham from Camden, NSW, Australia posted this comment on Monday 06 February 2012 00:31:00.

I am also a Wonham. we dont know much about our history but I would love to know more... Rumor through the family is that the Wonhams lost the Manor due to gambling debts?

I have always wanted to go and see Wonham Manor... Maybe one day :-)

My maternal grandmother was a Wonham and I am doing history into the family and wondered if anyone can give me any details of the history of the Manor, Mill and Lane


Comment 15

Ken Dason from Burton on Trent posted this comment on Friday 11 August 2017 10:57:56.

After reading the comments posted. Comment 8 Lesley makes reference to my uncle Arthur Busby, the gardener. As a small boy, our family spent time during one summer (late 60's?)at the gate house for our holiday. From a northern industrial town (Scunthorpe) days spent in the country, exploring the woods and riding in the grass box on the tractor was heavenly. If business takes me in that direction, I would love to have a look at the place again after all these years.
