Christine (Brown) Searle was born in England.

Tilliduff One Name Study My great-grandmother's name - a brick wall for 45 years, now destroyed!

Both my maiden name and my married name originate in Cornwall. My mother's paternal line goes back to the Derbyshire/Leicestershire border where the family were lace-makers, while her maternal line was from the Essex coast. All my lines found themselves in Kent by the early twentieth century.

I was born and brought up in Kent, first around the Erith and South-East London area, then moving to Gillingham when I was four. At the age of eleven I moved to Hartley, near Dartford, going to Rochester Girl's Grammar School. After five years there I moved to East Yorkshire, attending Beverley High School. All these moves were occasioned by my father's rise in the librarianship world. After leaving school I moved to London, working at the Continental Telephone Exchange in Queen Victoria Street, until my marriage took me to Bedfordshire, where I stayed for forty-six years, before moving up to Speyside for a true retirement!

Member of the United Kingdom project with just one line originating in Scotland

Hi Christine, i’ve Just volunteered to help out with Kent and Susie asked me to touch base with you. I’m looking forward to working with you. I am in Australia, but have some ancestors from Deal and Ash next Sandwich, as well as others that lived in and around Greenwich.... so I’m reasonably familiar with genealogical research in Kent. Also I’m just joining the Categorization project.

Christine -

Thanks for working on sourcing of Margaret Rogers Wallis. We adopted her earlier this year as my Mother's family was Wallis but Margaret wasn't one of "ours". Much appreciation for your work. Betsy Stinson (Stinson-707)

Hi Christine. I must say you have done an amazing job with the Tullideph line. I am going across some of the Leslies and have had some issues with connects but your research is superb - well done. My paternal line is derived from St. Cyrus near Montrose and I dare say I will bump some of your families again. Great job.
