There are a number of descendants of Edward Jarvis who are interested in the family history.
I am Ada’s granddaughter and I am in contact with a number of my relatives. Please would you kindly give my email address to Eddie as we would love to share information with him.
Needless to say, my father, her grandson, was also a headteacher and I have just retired after 18 years as a head. My father was told a story that when the local authority upset one of the sisters, they all threatened to resign and the authority backed down.
The first to go there, Rose Alice Harrison, was the Salthouse connection, because she married Thomas Lubbock Matthews who was born in Salthouse.
I have since found out a lot more about them and they also appear in two stories on your website - one about the windmill and one by Pamela Hayward who remembered the sisters.
I will put my updated information onto the messages page but I was wondering whether you have any contact details for Pamela.
email me [email protected] are descendants of Phillip Perfrement 1779-1854 son of Samuel 1739 -1829 and Ann Lee.
We have identified our family history back through the Perfrements to the Hugenots and the Chamberlains who married Mary E Perfrement 1849-1903, back to the late 1700's. I will try to find Alison's email address, but in the hope she may see your message online, I'm putting it up here - though as you can see my messages page is a bit out of date! Val I look at the site fairly often and I am delighted to see the message from Eddie Jarvis posted this week.
HESE MESSAGES are ones I have gratefully received and put up here for people who are interested to read and may be encouraged to send a message.
If you didn't want your message to be put here just say so, but do let me know you've visited!
My great, great grandfather, Samuel Wright, ran what was called the Kelling Arms public house in The Street, Kelling. He took over as the Innkeeper in 1897, and my family ran it until 1957.
If you look at the photo from Jim Radley, which you say is almost certainly Kelling School, I see my great grandmother, Dorothy Wright sat front row, second from the left.
He died in 1938, and Dorothy continued running the pub until 1957.
