East Harting Stores - a Memory of East Harting.
My name was Carol Upfield and my father was Albert known as Bert. I remember going to see my grandfather in the shop when I was about three, I am now 65, but my father and his brothers and sisters were I beliave born there. I lived in Nyewood until I was five, next to Les and family. My dad's other brothers Reg and Jack lived down the road. My Aunt Freda Dowsett, Dad's sister, lived at Hollis Farm, Hollis Lane and Rosie Edwards his youngest sister at the end of the lane. Most of my family have lived and worked in this area since the 1700s and maybe before.
My grandfather Walter John owned the house and shop, you can see it in the distance in the photo of East Harting, the white building on the left. It was in future years called The Upfields. I do have a few photos of the the house. It is now called Hameford House. Just wonder if anyone has any history or photos? I would love to here from you as I have been tracing my family back and I am always looking for interesting memories. Thanksyou.
