Winchelsea in East Sussex Town Guide

Looking for Garrod, Cruickshank or Hooper

Hi – I am led to believe that a Ralph Eddowes Garrod (1908 – 1964) was once Mayor of Winchelsea. I am trying to find anyone who knows of his relatives or friends who can help me (directly or indirectly) to trace his great granddaughter Francesca Hooper. Francesca may have much information on her Grandmother, a Daphne Cruickshank/Garrod/Butcher who was the wife of a Pilot whose aircraft crash I am researching. If you have any information please leave a message or contact [reveal email] . Thank you.

    Daphne Garrod was my aunt. She died last April. She was married to two pilots in WW2, who both died in aircraft crashes. Which crash are you researching?

    Hi Stephen,

    I’ve sent you an email but I want to say thanks to the web site for the opportunity to have made contact. I can’t imagine how difficult this would have been years ago without the Internet!
