David Blackford:

Just realised John - I'd already posted all that info in my initial post.

I guess you must be the grandson of either Philiop, Arthur, Stephen, Frank or Tom Chaplin.

I knew only Tom, married to Bertha who had a pub, The Blacksmiths Arms at Offham near Lewes.

David Blackford:

Hello John - nice surprise.

John and Esther Chaplin are my grandparents on my mothers side. My mother was Emma Chaplin and she married Reginald Blackford from Hawkhurst. We live on the Isle of Wight and my email is daveb3391@msn.com.

I don't have much history of the Chaplin side of my family but I do have a photo of Esther and also a list of their 10 children.

Hi David. Yes you have relatives close to Woodchurch! I believe that your mother was my Great grandmother's sister. Her name was Bertha Chaplin. My Aunt has memories of going to stay with your parents Emma and Reg as a child. One of my Grandmothers bridesmaids was a Blackford. We are just trying to find a christian name.

My mother was born in Woodchurch, Emma Dorothy Chaplin in 1896. She was one of 9 children. Mother was Esther, her father John and lived in a property called Brookiln.
I just wondered if I have any distant relatives living in Woodchurch. I have a photograph of my mother with her mother taken around 1898. My email david@blackford19.plus.com
PS. My mother married Reginald Blackford from Hawkhurst.
