Searle family
I'm looking for any details of the SEARLE family who lived at 259 Earlsfield Road, Wandsworth from about 1915 to at least 1928. The address was given on the parish register for the marriages of Bessie Searle (born 1896) and John Searle (born 1898). The head of the family, John Robert Searle (born 1870), went missing from about 1916 and was recorded as "deceased" on his son John's marriage in 1928. I can't find a record of John Robert Searle's death or that of his wife Phillis (or sometimes Philadelphia). I have a suspicion that he might have absconded and changed his name or identity. If this rings a bell with you I'd be pleased to have your thoughts. Thanks for reading this.

red mail Scout Troops in Wandsworth 1914-1918
Does anyone have any records or memories of family member(s) who belonged to any of the Wandsworth Boy Scouts' Troops during WW1? I'm researching a family member born around 1898 who was a member of the Boy Scouts in Wandsworth during the First World War. He was a Patrol Leader and appears to have taken Scouting quite seriously, as he gained six proficiency badges and a Service Star. He wore a Scouts' lapel badge on his everyday jacket when not in uniform. Around 1917 he won an impressive-looking trophy. He was clearly proud of this achievement as he sat for a studio portrait, in Scout uniform, holding the trophy. The photo is clear enough to show some details of the trophy: a wooden shield appx 16in / 40cm tall with a circular, cast metal medallion approx 4 inches / 10cm in diameter in the centre. The relief image on the medallion shows two scouts with walking poles standing on rocky terrain. The trophy has four engraved 'scrolls' on each side of the medallion, a large engraved scroll at the top, and a smaller engraved shield at the bottom. Sadly, even a high resolution scan is not clear enough to show any of the engraved text. I would love to find out more about this trophy - what was it awarded for, and its whereabouts now. It's the kind of thing that somebody's granddad or uncle would have been proud to have won, and would surely have handed the story down to younger generations. If anyone has any thoughts or memories of this, please do contact me! Thanks

red mail James Hollis b. 1757
My 4th great grandfather was born Aug 19, 1757 in Wandsworth Surrey (according to his pension application for service for the American patriots in the American Revolution). He sailed to South Carolina as a British soldier and served under the command of Lord Rawdon at the siege of Ninety Six (1780 when Hollis would have been 23). While later guarding Charleston harbor, he deserted and joined the patriots. Does anyone have information on a Hollis family in Surrey in the 1750s? Does anyone have suggestions on where to search for a birth record or military record? I would appreciate any help.

The shooting of Florrie McQuillin.
As told to me by my mother, her sister Florrie (Florence Ann?) was shot in the head by a jealous? boy friend working as a coalman. The bullet did not kill my aunt but remained in her brain and she was taken to hospital. The so called 'boy friend'shot and killed himself in the entrance hall of the family house. Aunt Isabella, of a tidy mind, swept his brains up with a dust pan and brush, and from that moment did not grow any taller! Later, whilst on a visit home from the hospital Florrie became over excited and died. The family, as far as I know, was as follows. Head Stephen McQuillin, master blacksmith, Richard, later to join the Cameronians and later the Custom Service, Isabella, Mary Ann Emma, my mother and Elizabeth. The mother of this family had died earlier, when I do not know. Stephen remarried a widow Holden? who had two or three boys and was i was told the typical Grimms Stepmother. Did this happen in Riverhall Street, Wandsworth C1902? What records do the Police have, was it written up in the local paper? Stephen died at the beginning of the last war and was buried by my cousin Sydney James Winch,the son of Isabella, after his escape from Norway in an Irish cattle boat. Does any one have any knowledge of this sad history of our Langley.....McQuillin family, do hope so. Who was the coalman? thank you, Bill

red mail Galloways of Wandsworth
My maternal family lived in Stimpsons Buildings (cottages?) for many years. My grandmother was Daisy (a twin with Christina) and lived with my uncles, Jim and George at Stimpsons Buildings until approx. 1960/61 when she moved to Nottingham to live with family there. Jim and George had died some years previously. My mum was called Isabel and went to St. Joseph's school. I remember the house was beside the River Wandle and not far from Wandsworth Common. Stimpsons Buildings were demolished in the 60's to make way for either a dual carriageway/flyover I believe, so they have long since gone. Has anyone any details of Stimpsons Buildings or does anyone have any knowledge or memories of my family? I would absolutely love to see photos of this place as I have none whatsoever and have only my (very vague) memories.
