Memories of Ticehurst, from Myskyns 1903

This view brings back many childhood memories, I was born in the cottage on the right hand edge of the picture, in 1947, growing up on the farm there, and have lived within three miles of the area for the majority of my life.

My name is David Effer and we lived in Ticehurst from 1954 to 1968 when we left for Australia.   We lived in Springfields and I had 4 brothers and two sisters.  My father worked at Ticehurst House as a chef.   Mum and dad have passed on now and one sister lives in Sicily.
