Someone called Ramona has sent this message, via the village web site:
“Trying to contact ( from California) someone who might be interested in 1785 Rosehill page in family recipe book. Also has a poem in it. We were in Hawkhurst in 1982. My mothers maiden name was Gregson.”
Rosehill (or Rose Hill) is of course the former name of Brightling Park. If anyone wants to respond to this message, let me know and I will pass it on.
