Memories of Ewhurst

In the late 19th century both this inn and the windmill itself, which was a short way away, were run by members of the Coldman family --- brothers I believe.

When my maternal grandparents' house "Hobart", Mount Road, Cranleigh was bombed during World War Two we were housed temporarily above the the Crown Inn whilst the bomb was defused and the house put back in order.

For more information on the men from Ewhurst who served and fell or returned from the First World War, details can be found at "The number of volunteers from Ewhurst and Ellen's Green was 'second to none'. The memorials show the price they paid" Walter Stemp, one of the village's veterans.

I am researching my family tree and I have learned that my ancestor George Worsfold born around 1799 ran Coneyhurst Farm in Ewhurst in the mid to late 1800s. He had 7 children and a lot of other relatives also in Ewhurst and Cranleigh. I am hoping to discover more and perhaps visit Ewhurst soon.
