red mail The Skep, Sunnway Bosham
The Skep ( means beehive made of straw ) is a thatched house on Sunnyway in Bosham. I believe that In the mid 1920's the recently widowed Ivy Searson and her 2 young children , Betty and Dick bought the house. I am not sure how long they lived there for, but I am guessing that it was until at least the early 40's. Anyone have any more information ?
red mail Hewson/Eure
I am looking for in formation on Samuel Hewson who marrie Ann Eure in Bosham c1829. Samuel is listed as a ships captain on his daughter Ann's wedding certificate to my Great Grandfather John Dunn in Liverpool 1873. Does anyone have information regarding the ship(s) he served in as master? He does not appear on any census, only his wife Ann, Mother in Law Sarah Eure and his children, in Liverppol 1861. Can anyone help please.
red mail Another Clue
Continuing the Hill saga, Capt. Hill's wife died in 1920 aged 40, Isabella Dawson Hill. I now see that there was a Dawson family, George, 29, a house painter, B aged 30 and child GE aged 4 living in New Cottages in the 1901 census time. It is possible, but not certain, that the young Robert Charles Hill was sent to them. He also had a sister, Vivienne, but we don't know if she was with him. Please help if you can! Thank you.
red mail Hill correction
We have discovered that it was Capt. Hill's son, Robert Charles Hill (same name as himself) who was in Bosham. He must have been quite young. Can anyone say what The Skep, Sunnyway was? This was probably in the 1920s or 30s. Thank you. Ivy
