Are you the Yvonne Parry I once knew?

Contributed by editor on Jul 13, 2008 - 08:52 AM

Dear Editor,

I have been trying to locate an old teaching colleague, Yvonne Parry.

We taught together at St Francis Xavier in Canberra in 1983.

I lost contact with her several years ago and am wondering if she is the same person mentioned on your website.

Perhaps she is interested in contacting me.

Hawkinge search for Walter Mant

Contributed by editor on Sep 15, 2007 - 11:43 PM

Dear Editor,

I am seeking information about my great grandfather.

Walter G B Mant lived in West End Cottage somewhere in Hawkinge.

It was a small holding and I know he was there during the Second World war. He is buried in the cemetery with Jane his wife and my mother Frances who as a girl used to visit him on his \'farm\'.

Is there anyone who might be able to identify where the house used to be? Anyone who might remember them?
