Memories of Alverstoke

I was there from 1963 -1965. I remember the day we wandered off to the church, Anne , Tracy and I. Tracy fell in the fish pond. It was a very scary/funny memory for me, I was about 4 I think. Also Sister Ivy Bell married my father David Peacock at this church in July, 1965.. Lorrell Peacock.

I used to come to Alverstoke with my mother, father and sister to visit my great aunt May Mackie from 1953-1970's. I used to love playing mini golf here with my family. I lived in Alverstoke for a year when we first arrived back from Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in !953 and lived with my Grandmother Mrs Violet Isabel Black. (...Read full memory)

I have just started researching my family history. My great grandfather was Jacob Abraham and was gardener for John Brett Purvis and then Richard Purvis at Bury Hall. I would love to see a picture of Bury Hall and or Bury Hall Lodge. Does it still exist? My father Isaac Abraham worked at the Royal Laboratory at the age of 12!

My little brother broke his arm while playing by the church, as a big gust of wind picked him up and blew him into the wall, believe it or not.
