red mail St. Margaret's School Folkestone
My mother, Kathleen Esther ROGERS, taught music at this school around 1936, following her training at the Royal Academy of Music, from 1928 - 1933. I would be very interested to know more about this school, if anyone has any records going back to this time, maybe old school magazines, etc., which might mention her. My mother went on to teach at Wakefield High School, and I have been most fortunate in that I have found out much of what she achieved there, so it would be good to have some idea of her life in Folkestone. Many thanks Belinda
red mail Irish in Folkestone in the 1960's
Hi, I have just joined the site. I am wondering if anyone knows of somone who came over to Folkestone around 1965, from Southern Ireland, most likely from KILKENNY, looking for work. All I know is that his first name was Tim or TIMOTHY. Surname unknown. He stayed in this Folkestone only for a few months: say 3 - 6 months, and then moved on, probably to London to find better work. Ring any bells? He probably would have been around 35 at the time. Apparently he looked a bit like Piers Morgan and brushed up well in a suit! What happened to him? Where is he now? Any relatives? Any information would be great! Many thanks.

I would be delighted to learn what happened to her and her family.
red mail WEBB
My Grandmother Florence Maud Somerfield WEBB was born in Fancy St FOLKESTONE in 1873. Her mother was Jane WEBB, nee Jane TOLHURST (Jane's father was Joseph TOLHURST but her mother had been widowed and remarried Robert SINCLAIR). Jane married Henry WEBB, a Fisherman in 1860. In the 1871 census Jane is described as a Widow, BUT 2 years later Florence's birth certificate gives her father as Frank WEBB, Butcher. Maybe Henry had not really died by April 1871, but was just posted missing and later became a Butcher preferring a different forename. I have looked in many places for Henry's death with no result. Family legend tells of our Great Great Grandfather, a lifeboatman, dying on the Goodwin Sands during a rescue. Florence's birth was registered by her mother so maybe the Registrar asked the forename of the father and she being a widow said Frank the Butcher, and gave her own name - WEBB!!! All and any ideas welcome!

William DARBY - Blacksmith in 1960's
I trying to find background details on my Great Uncle William DARBY whom I know from personal recollection ran a blacksmith's forge in Cheriton, near Folkestone, Kent. The business ran for many years up until the 1960's or even 70's (yes, 1960's not 1860's). The location of the forge was in an outbuilding in the back garden of a large Victorian House backing on to the recreation ground. The address was 100 Stanley Road, and the business was owned by Kemsley & Son's. Would be grateful for any links or references to information about the blacksmithing business or premises in this area or suggestions as to where to go to find more information on the topic.
