Both my maiden name and my married name originate in Cornwall, as well as my paternal grandmother's line. 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. 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 working in the NHS, before moving up to Speyside.
