39Re: [St.H.Fam.Hist.] (unknown)
- Aug 7, 2004Hi Geoff, I have no idea whether there is a connection with your family, but
in 1968 I met a young woman named Joyce Harris, a teacher on the island who
had just come back from training in England. She would have been in her
early twenties, I think, and lived near High Knoll.
Strange how many Saints have connections with Portsmouth, where I grew up!
My father's family lived in Eastney for many years, some still do, and I
went to my first school there. I left in 1963, my family by then having
moved closer to London, where I worked and from where I got the job which
connected me to St. Helena.
