Links View, Martins

3rd October 2020

Chris Martin:

My parents (Mary and Gordon Martin) lived in Links View (now April Cottage) in Conghurst Lane in the late 1950s and lived there til the 1990s. It was so called because it overlooked Links Farm which my father established on the site of the original golf course.I went to the scouts in Hawkhurst with my friend Mick Eames, Colin and Robert Golding from Conghurst Lane (and my brother Nigel) as well as several others from the Hawkhurst area.

Mick and I walked down Stream Lane to junior school at the moor. Later I went to the dreadful Swattenden School, catching the school bus from the Shop at the end of Conghurst Lane. I have many more memories of Hawkhurst, happy times.

I've now retired to the New Forest overlooking the IOW and enjoying being a Grandfather ... Chris Martin

Jenner / Blackford

4th August 2019

David Blackford:

In my ancesttry research I find that my Grandfather, Luke, John Blackford born 1862 was the illegitimate son of John Jenner and Caroline Blackford - Hense had the surname Blackford.
Do I have any Jenner relatives descended from their LEGITIMATE sons & daughter - William Alfred born 1864, Mark Thomas born 1867 and Florence Javeny born 1876?

Trevor Monk:

There is the Kent County Archives in Maidstone and the Sussex County Archives near Brighton which both hold a large amount of historical records and data. There is a National Archives site that you can search on-line. Some villages also have Historical Societies that can also be helpful.

I am researching my family history and wondered if anyone knows anything about the Evans family that lived in Hawkhurst in the 16 and 1700s. They were amongst other things Clothiers and Overseers.

Many thanks,
