Furners from Gravesend Kent
Posted by: Paul Furner (ID *****9565) Date: May 13, 2005 at 07:27:59
  of 88

Further to my last posting ref Furners anywhere I have spoken to my father who tells me that his father,s (George Frank Furner)mother died in the flu epidemic following the first world war. His dad had two sisters whose names he can't recall but thinks one was called Lily, the other married someone with the surname Kidd and lived in the midlands, they apparently had a daughter. My great grandfather (Frank Furner) had a brother Harry who lived in Upton Park near the West Ham football ground. He believes the children from this family moved to Essex but can't be sure. I know that there are at least three more generations before this with the male having the name Frank as either a first or second name. Are any of my relatives reading this because if so it would be nice to say hi.
On my Grandmothers side the surname was Harpum and her father and uncles ran a Blacksmiths in Queen Street Gravesend.
