Does anyone in Tilbury remember or know anything about my Great grandmother Martha farrow who i believe was a midwife in Tilbury many years ago . She died in 1941.One of her daughters was my Grandmother who arranged the outings mentioned above.

hello Edward. I am Martha Farrows Great Great Grandaughter. When she died she was the oldest woman in Tilbury at 97. There was a big write up about her in the John Bull magazine and during her time as a midwife she delivered over a 1000 babies, some in Tilbury fort. I am in touch with one of those babys who is 103 years old. Her Husband was a shepherd and they lived in a cottage near to where Adelaide road is now. Her Daughter Emma was my Grandmas Mother.She is buried in chadwell cemetary in a Sargeant grave under the name of Martha Broughton.(she must have remarried) I have heard that she originated from Suffolk.My own mum was Violet Day, Iris's sister who married Lottys son Jack Sargent(small world)

How nice to receive your comments lesley about Marth farrow(my great grandmother Emma was my grandmothers sister Florence )Yes she was born in pulham-st-mary suffolk, also she did remarry a Mr Boughton who died 5 years later. I would love to meet up with you and show you the family history that i have gathered together back to 1754 my 4th great grandmother. Do you live local and would you be going to grays museum on 21st may they are doing a day on The History Of Tilbury, if so i will be there maybe we can meet up.

Hello again Edward. On my mums side (the Day family) I have resurched back to around 1742. They came from Gloustershire. My Mum and I went up there quite alot and found relations and even went in the cottage that my Grandads mother lived in, she too was a midwife. It would be great to meet up and learn more about my Dads side of the family. i am not sure where the grays museum is located, is it at Thameside theatre? What time does the talk take place?, i can do during the day. I went to the cemetary to take another look at granny Farrows grave and the person buried in there with her is Alfred Frederick Sargeant, he was buried there after her. So Edward if you could let me know when and where. look forward to hearing from you! Lesley.

Hello Edward. Sorry for the delay in replying but have only just read your reply. Granny Farrows grave is in the new cemetary, as you go through the gate its about half way down the driveway, before you reach the chapel, on the left hand side, its close to the edge. I had a look on the internet for Pulham st mary but it kept coming up in Norfolk and not Suffolk? Do you know granny Farrows maiden name? and do you know who Alfred Frederick Sargeant was whos burried with her? I look forward to your reply and hope that some how we can meet up some time. Lesley.
