red mail Henry Poole Hepburn
Our 2x great grandmother Henrietta Poole Hepburn Beverley, born 1849, appears to be illegitimate. I have never been able to locate any birth or baptism records. Her mother is Emily Beverley and they move around in London, eg Chelsea, Pimlico, Westminster. Because of the name combination I have suspicions that Henry Poole Hepburn is the father (or at least claimed to be the father). I have not found the combination Poole Hepburn anywhere else. There is no real evidence though. Henry marries but has not got any legitimate children. His will does mention some trusts but no specifics. Emily is described as an annuitant on the 1851 census. I would be most interested if anyone has any more information on a possible link between Henry and our ancestors, or knows of a way to find out! Many thanks, Elke
Jenner/Smith/Sandalls of Chailey
My grandfather Charles Smith was possibly the illigitimate son of Eunice Smith. Eunice, possibly Eunice Susan Smith came from Chailey and her parents are believed to be Richard Smith and Susan nee Jenner. Eunice was an uneducated housemaid in Brighton and possibly had an older child Ada Eunice. Charles was bought up by the Sandalls family and I believe the Smiths, Jenners and Sandalls families had close ties in Chailey and possibly Lewis. Would love contact from relatives of any of these families. Thanks.

red mail Chailey - Ww1
Researching two VAD hospitals located in Chailey/Newick during WW1. The first, Hickwells, operated from March 1915 to June 1916. The VAD unit - Sussex/54 - then re-located to larger premises at Beechland House in nearby Newick where it operated until 1918. I have some information already but seek additional material on all things Chailey 1914-18, particularly the local residents. Chailey was home to a number of prominent families - Blencowe, Cotesworth, Ingram, Bessemer - amongst others, and the village war memorial commemorates 49 local men - some from Newick - who lost their lives during the Great War. All information relating to Chailey gratefully received.
