Are There Any 'bridgelands' Around? - a Memory of Catsfield.
My maternal grandmother was a Mary Bridgeland, born to Henry Bridgeland and Delia (formerly Quaife), in Catsfield, 12 Feb. 1872. She always said she lived in 'The White House', Catsfield.
She married Frederick Osborn,an 'outside porter' from Prospect Place, Hastings, on April 26th. 1892. Any contact with any relative would be gratefully received as my early life (my father died when I was 15 months old) was with my mother, living with grandmother and grandfather again at 'School House', Braybroke Rd., Hastings, until 1941/42. A large family the Osborns; I had 4 aunts and 4 uncles - most living at Braybroke Terrace! Well spoiled!
