red mail Hawkslease orphanage & Marden Brockenhurst
My grandmother, who was a widow (and who died about 15 years ago) was Pearl Wilson and was Matron at the girls orphanage for many years during and after the war. She was at Marden as well. Her sister Gladys Perry was cook there for a while. My mother Rosemary Wilson partly grew up there although she was at school elsewhere. By all accounts it was a very happy place and I would be pleased to be in contact with anybody who can tell me any more or vice versa.

red mail Smith, Beavis, Carter, Sims
According to Lyndhurst parish records, Edward Smith, described as "a sojourner of this parish", married local resident Martha Beavis on 19 Oct 1781. Of approximately six children born to them between the years 1782-1799, at least two survived: John (christened 13 Jun 1783), and Elizabeth (christened 10 Apr 1796). John Smith became the Lyndhurst Parish Clerk, and married Mary Carter on 6 Aug 1812. Witnessing the wedding were his father Edward and his sister, Elizabeth. John and Mary had three sons, all born at Lyndhurst: Frederick (b.23 May 1813), John (b.8 Jun 1815), and Charles Edward (b. 01 Feb 1820). Later parish records indicate John Sr. was widowed and then married Mary Anne Sims on 28 Feb 1839. They had two daughters: Frances (christened 19 Oct 1840), and Elizabeth (christened 24 Mar 1843). Frederick became a banker's clerk. Apparently, he never married. He lived with his brother John from at least 1871 until his death in 1890 (see my posting at Kingston Upon Thames). John Jr. settled firstly in the Islington area of London, and married Jane (surname Byrne?) around 1844. They had four children: Maryann (b.1845), Frederick Charles (b.1847), Sarah Emily (b.1849), and Harry Tyrrell (b.1850). Jane Smith died around 1854. John then married Margaret Duguid Forrest in 1855. He was a stationer's commercial clerk for many years. He and Margaret had six children while living at Kingston Upon Thames. John's younger brother Charles Edward remained in Lyndhurst and became a tailor. He married Rhoda (surname unknown) around 1852. They had three daughters: Kate Fanny(b.1853), Rhoda (b.1854), and Clara (b. abt 1858). I would welcome contact from my cousins who share this ancestry.
