Has anyone any information on the Cawkwell family, living in the Louth, Lincolnshire area. My grandfather was called Seymour Cawkwell, he was born in Louth in 1904 and died in 1993. I know of only two brothers Noel and Walter and that his mum died in childbirth. He was the light heavyweight champion of Lincolnshire and was aka Charlie. He married Eva Goy and had one daughter Rita (my mum), If anyone has any further information I would be very grateful.
