Hello Suzannah

I have just found your information on Ancestry regarding the Newloves of Dane House Academy Margate. I understand that James Newlove originally discovered the Shell Grotto, or maybe the credit should go to his son Joshua, from what I have read. Your information was the first to list his wife Eliza's maiden name, thank you. I managed to find an advertising flyer on another site for the school at Hawley Square too. Their daughter Arabella was my grandfathers great grand mother. I believe she married into another Margate family the Mercers. I would love if you would be able to share any further info or pictures that you may have on this family. Thank you Regards Joanna Gray
