Going through a family tree. My great-great-great uncle was Robert Cobbold Perry who died 21/8/1864 at Merstham House, Surbiton, Surry. His mother-in-law (my great-great-great grandmother was Anne Courtnall Edwards, married to Thomas Lincoln Barker, both of Ipswich, Norfolk.
I work on Perrywood Business Park. We think we are the very last unit facing the field. Could you advise if some of the houses were knocked down on the left hand side as you come into the Park.. we are having a debate in the office about this!
I have discovered on the 1939 census that my uncle, Leonard C Harris, was a waiter in the Fonthill Hotel. My uncle disappeared from his home in London when he was in his teens (and never seen or heard from again) and his sister (my aunt) who is 96 would love to have a picture of where he worked and any info you may have about him.
Thank-you for your interest in my family. Yes, I have one photo of my great aunt Helena Auerbach. I dont have it scanned at the moment. She was on various committees - I believe she was the Treasurer on most of them - of the Suffragette movement during the 1920s. There is quite a lot of information about her on the internet if you just google her name - and more photos of her. Please contact me anytime, should you want further info. You can email me or call me on my mobile - 07716311400 . Kind Regards - Patricia Aubrey (Auerbach).
I am researching the history of the campaign for the vote in the dorking/reigate area. Mrs Auerback (helena, Juliuss wife) was very active in the non-militant campaign and hosted many events at Heathersett. are there any photos of her surviving?

In another photo the room downstairs is called the Boys Library. It is part of our stores while upstairs are offices. The hexagonal room on the right is another office though not always a popular location.
10/02/17. St Davids is still the headquarters of the Surrey Fire & Rescue Service. This room forms part of the stores and is use as an operational equipment store. There is no trace of the first door anymore! but the furthest door is in everyday use!
Hi Pat, I do not know reason why George was in this home but the records are held at Surrey History Centre 130 Goldsworth road, Woking, Surrey.Tel: 01483 518737 (Closed Mondays). His admission record for 21.2.1891 is available, with a photo of him too on Ref: 2271/10/21, page/folio 651. Contact SHC or go there with a camera (small fee for use) and photograph his admission register. or ask SHC to copy it/scan or whatever which will incur a larger fee.
I am searching for my grandmothers brother who was in this institution in 1891 aged 14, his name was George White and was born in Kingston upon Thames Surrey in 1877. in 1895 I believe that he joined the army and his regiment was the Scottish Rifles. I would be very interested to know the reason that he was an inmate in Philanthropic Home and would like to see his records if possible
In 1928 my grandfather changed the above Smithy to a small petrol station with taxis . I was born in the room behind the chimney on 5th March 1934 and lived in this house from 1939 to 1946.

Gatton Road, Reigate
I have just started researching my family history. The Surrey Electoral Registers show my paternal grandparents, John Reuben & Lillian Kate Lewin, were resident at Little Gatton from 1945 to 1947 and the entry for 1947 includes A malcolm Campbell. I remember my grandmother telling me she was in service to Sir Malcom Campbell for a time. I know from the 1939 Register they were butler and cook to a stockbroker in Chertsey so they may well have served the same functions for Sir Malcolm. Sadly I dont have any photographs relating to this period of their lives and I would be very grateful to receive any photos (especially any showing Little Gatton as it was in the mid 1940s and/or the servants at that time) or any other relevant information.
I was conceived here summer 1958. My parents lived here for about 2 and a half years and were probably here when this picture was taken, certainly his driving licence from July 1956 gives his address as 7 Berkeley Close, Dean Lane Park !
