red mail Signaller SAMKIN, Essex Rgt. World War I
On 13th Aug. 1916 my Great Uncle L. Cpl. Bernard George LAMPARD was killed by a German shell near THIEPVAL, Somme. Signaller SAMKIN witnessed the death. He wrote several letters to Bernard's sister, Ethel Wilson, of Platt's Heath (my grandmother) and their mother, Kate Smurthwaite, of Bognor. In one letter he said that he hoped to meet them if he suvived the war, he would then be able to tell them more about what happened. I have often wondered if the meeting took place? In one letter S. Samkin says that before the War he was a ship's steward with G.E.R. channel steamers running between Harwich and Rotterdam, he had one brother and 3 married sisters. If there is anyone out there who is a decendant or relation of S. SAMKIN, I would be thrilled to hear from them.
Charles Paulin
Charles Samuel Paulin was born in Woolwich in 1823, married Sarah Bland in 1851 , They both died in 1901 in Essex. Is there anybody researching this family.
Fitch and Mildmay Families
Am looking to find out if there are family links between these two families in the 1780-1800 time frame. They worked in high-profile jobs together, but did they inter-marry? The Mildmays were based mostly in Chelmsford, Essex and the Fitch families were in various other Essex villages: Bocking and Writtle, etc. Would like to know about Thomas Fitch of "the Parish of St Peter" and how he came to be tried before a Grand Jury. Also can anyone shed light on what happened between the Bishop of Rochester and Lewis Disney Fitch (aka Ffytche, Fffytche) which resulted in the Bishop getting ownership of Danbury Place, later Danbury Palace? Any information gratefully received.
