Footnote :- As the author of these records, I guess it is only fair that I should give as much information about myself and my family as I can without being too boring. I was born in Bushey Park Hospital near Watford, three weeks before the start of World War Two. My parents and I were bombed out five times during the the war and I was evacuated four times. Firstly to Kent, then Somerset, then South Wales and back to Kent again. After the war we settled in Greenwich, South East London. In 1947, because of my ill health (Asthma) we moved to Brockley, not far from Lewisham also in South East London. While we lived there I went to Gordonbrock junior school and then to Crofton Park Secondary Modern. When I left school I started work as an apprentice electrician, I retired in 2004, fifty years to the day I started. I married the girl next door Sandra Roberts, who was born in Lewisham Hospital, she and her mum and dad moved to Brockey in the same year as our family. When we met, she was three and I was seven. We both lived in prefabs on a place called Hillyfields. They were called "Hillyfields Bungalows". We married in 1964 after a six year courtship, then in the same year, emigrated to Australia. After moving three times as the family grew, we finally settled in a house of our own in the district of Engadine (named after a valley in Switzerland), south of Sydney, New South Wales, I still live there. My interests are, this ongoing project which has taken over my life, my beloved football club "The Arsenal" and the local rugby league club "The Cronulla Sharks". I and all our children have all played soccer at some stage. Mark and Robyn are still playing. It is in loving memory of Sandra, that I share the dedication of this web site between her and the lady who's letter instigated me into start building the tree in the first place, Ceridwen Robyn (Kerry) Curness nee Roberts, who sadly, was killed in a car crash in 1991.
