The POLLARD family of Cranleigh/Cranley
Christopher POLLARD (1780 - 1843), my paternal 3 x great grandfather was born in Cranleigh, the son of William POLLARD and Mary ELIOT (or ELLIOTT). Christopher married Sarah UNDERWOOD in the same village. They had at least 2 children: Mary Ann POLLARD and William POLLARD.

I found among her belongings several photographs of her young students: surnames include THOMPSON, BEWLEY, BRIGHTEN, CHIPPER, SMITH, WARE, HANCOCK, PARKER, REID, POMEROY, MARTIN, BATTEN, GOODLEY, PRATT.

Smithbrook, Cranleigh
Now, a site of industrial units, Smithbrook around the beginning of the1900s was a grand house, part of the Godwin Austen (sp?) estate. I would welcome information about the family who lived there. Is there any significance in the surname 'Bellamy' perhaps? Jean
red mail Jowett car, PG 7956
I own a 1930 Jowett saloon car with a dark blue fabric body that I bought in about 1966 from Mr. F John Budgett who had been the proprietor of J Chambers and Son in Redhill. I collected the car - or rather its remains as it was in a derelict state - from his home in Cranleigh. The car was originally sold by Hunts of Guildford so it probably 'lived' in the area all its working life. This seems to have been a hard life as there is evidence of many years of care and repair including evidence of a serious 'rear end shunt' probably some time before WWII. There was also a lot of light coloured sandy clay under the wings and chassis, so it might have ended its days on a farm as a 'fun' car. I have made contact with a relative of Mr Budgett but I would very much like to hear from anyone who has knowledge of this car in the period from 1930 until my purchase in 1966. In particular I would very much appreciate being able to copy any family photos that may exist that show this car. Also, on the day I collected the car there were at least two other young men in attendance who I believe may have been mechanics or apprentices to Mr. Budgett at J Chambers and Son in Redhill. If either or both happen to read this I would be most interested in any details thay might be able to provide. The car is at last under repair and was actually driven at the Jowett Centenary Rally in Wakefield in May 2010, although it had to be transported there and back by lorry. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who has, or has had, an interest in Jowett cars in general. There is a very active international owner's club that is always looking for 'tales of yesteryear'. Many thanks for reading this. Now if that has provoked any memories . . . .
red mail James Stemp
My husband's paternal grandmother was Caroline Franklin, nee Stemp. Her father was James Stemp, born c1849 in Cranley (old spelling) Surrey. He married Mary Pannell in 1869 and they lived in Hersham, Surrey. I have established that his father's name was Thomas and his mother was Eliza, nee Finch. I cannot find his birth record, the Stemps were legion in the area at the time and I wonder if perhaps he was not registered. If anyone has any information about James and his father and family, I would be very happy to hear from them.

William was an ironmonger, and I want to know if he had his own shop, or ifhe worked as an employee. I see Manns ironmongers began in 1887- could he have worked for them?
