Trying To Find Ancestors - a Memory of Alton.
I am trying to find my Grandparents who lived in or around Alton. They were John Power and Martha Power (formerly Martha Brown). My father John Robert Power was born in Alton 18th November 1926 at 7, Tower Street Alton. He unfortunately passed away in 2007, he tried on several occasions to find his parents (John and Martha) without success. He was fostered to a family headed by Edwin George Bann Senior who lived at Snode Cottages, Snode Hill, Medstead. John and Martha were allegedly "in service" and so could have been employed by a prominent person as my Grandfather's proffesion was stated on my fathers birth certificate as a Butler.
Edwin George Bann Junior worked as a gardener for Lady Elsie Bradford at Medstead Manor.
The Bann family moved to Carshalton Surrey probably around 1930, taking my father John Robert Power with them. If anyone knows any details of his parents John and Martha it would be most appreciated if you could contact me. My details are as follows.
