Re: Novell Family Information request

Hi Andrew - My great Grandmother was Edith Mary Novell born 1875 in Addlestone/New Haw in Surrey. Her father was Charles Novell, a shepherd born in Farnham. Her mother died shortly after giving birth in 1879, leaving Charles to bring up 4 young children alone.

Edith had a brother, Charles William born 1877 in Chertsey - he married Florence Kendrew in 1902 in South Croydon and they had a son John Charles in 1904 in Croydon. Florence died in 1908 and Charles William remarried a Hilda Berg (Swiss I think) - allegedly they had 9 children, one of which was Frederick Peter Novell - I say allegedly as I have not traced this family yet so cannot prove one way or another. My mother has been in touch with Frederick Peter's descendants.

I wonder if there was family in Croydon at the time of Edith's parents deaths and that is why Charles (the son)migrated there?

Anyway, the only other info I have on them is that Charles' parents were John and Mary and they lived in Badshot, Farnham with their numerous children and were Ag labs unsurprsingly!

Hopefully we will one day find a link.
