I am trying to contact the two gentlemen who called into Chitterne Village Hall yesterday the 15 May looking for me. They were researching their Grant ancestor who was born in Chitterne, namely Norman Grant, who, I thought one of the gentlemen said, was his father, but I may be wrong about that.
I have a Harold Norman Grant in my records who was born in Chitterne on the 18 October 1902 and baptised on the 21 December that year. Is this your ancestor? If so he must be your grandfather and I must have misheard you. Norman was the son of Henry Grant and Emma Coles and I can trace his line back to John ‘Shepherd’ Grant born about 1660, who married Sarah Titt of Chitterne in about 1691.
I wish I had had more time to talk to you and to exchange information. Please contact me if you read this, or if anyone knows these two gentlemen, who may have come from the Chichester area, please let me know.
