red mail Prospect Hotel, 29 Zion Place, Cliftonville, Kent
Hi, does anyone remember the owners of the Prospect Hotel in Cliftonville, Margate before it was demolished? I believe they would have been a Mr. Thomas SWALLOW and his wife Frances BAILEY. The hotel was apparently demolished in the 1960s when the area was renovated, but I'd be interested in tracing any surviving relatives of the owners (back in the 1940s-50s) as I have a letter from an 'Auntie Frances' to my grandmother inviting her to stay at the hotel, and I am curious to know what kind of relation she was to her. Thank you.

Susanna Le Brush and Isabel Brett, both married to Emptages

Emptage of Margate and Walk of Ramsgate
My great grandfather was Henry Thomas Emptage of Margate. He married Martha Walk of Ramsgate in Thanet in 1880. They had several children before separating. It is possible that his brother, William John Emptage was the father of one of those children, Avis Mary. Henry Thomas set up home in London with Malberry Jane Wilson of Petham, Bridge. She took his name and they had five children. I'd like to contact any one who can throw light on this tangled web. Susan

Only 2 children found for ROBERT and ELIZABETH, namely ELIZABETH ANN born cir. 1830 and my gt. grandmother LAVINIA MUMMERY PALMER born 1840. It appears that ELIZABETH married JOHN BEERLING in 1863. At the 1881 Census there were three children, Louisa M born cir.1866, Maud, cir.1870 and Minnie cir.1873. LAVINIA MUMMERY PALMER MARRIED, probably between 1862 and 1865, CHRISTOPHER NICHOLSON, born WEST WITTON, YORKS., They had two known children, Christopher, 1866 who married an EMMA WAGSTAFF and Charles Richard 1871 who married LYDIA MARTHA OSBORN. At the 1901 Census there was a LAVINIA NICHOLSON born MARGATE aged 2yrs, but whether she was a child of Christopher & Emma nee Wagstaff, I cannot be sure. In 1883, there was a marriage of a LAVINIA NICHOLSON, but cannot tie this in as LAVINIA MUMMERY NICHOLSON still shows herself as a Widow at the 1901 Census. In the 18th century, two Palmer females were given middle names of CROFTS and THOMPSON. As yet I can find no reason for this.
