Hawkins Family Roots In Tilford - a Memory of Tilford.
In 1920 the Hawkins family came to Canada. My grandfather was Edward Hawkins, known in the family as Ted. He had been the head gardener at the Whitmead estate. He and my grandmother Clarissa, had 5 children. Robert Montague, who served as signaler in the great war in Salonika, Helen (also known as Nellie) who became my mother, Arthur, Nora, and the youngest Ada.
Although I have travelled in England I have never visited Surrey. For your information I am now 76 years old I live in London Ontario, a city of 350,000. I would be delighted to make contact with anyone from Tilford. I have family mementos that I would be interested in sharing with you. There are a few photos of both Tilford and Farnham that are part of the family album. If anyone cares to write, my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
