I am trying to find any children or grandchildren of Harry Hook b1902 Battle Sussex, father George Hook and mother Philadelphia his brother Frank Hook was . my father. I last saw Harry and family, in Hemel Hampstead about 1948 when we visited them after the death of my grandfather George Hook who died in Hastings Sussex.

DetEcTive,
Theoretically if he was born at the end of 1902, he would only have been 8 in the census.
I just wondered if they had some of the birth places mixed up, or not actually born in Battle but surrounding area.

Hi, I worked with a William "Bill" Hook in the mid to late 60's. He was a bricklayer by trade and I believe he lived at Seaford, Sussex. He would have probably been in his late 50's at that time,

Have you put these people in your GR tree?

That's one of the better ways to find connections

I have looked into the Henry Charles Hook who married Miriam Ash , and I think it is he. So I am going to get a copy of their marriage cert to find his parents. If its the right Henry, then my cousins I believe could be,. Henry b1931, Ernest M 1932, both b. Ticehurst. Ivy j.1935 Marylebone, Amelia R 1936 Hendon and Mary C 1940.Hemel Hempstead.

Mary Margaret Kathleen - did you spot Colin's earlier post?? Have you contacted him by PM?

He might like to hear from you even if it turns out that it wasn't 'your' relative he knew.

I now have the birth cert: for Charles Henry Hook aka Harry 08.11.1902 father George Hook mother Philadelphia Wood. so he is my uncle. now the marriage cert is Henry Charles Hook to Miriam Ash 14.06.1927 Willesden Middlesex, and father George Hook, and Miriam's father Ernest Ash (deceased).I have checked and double checked and looked up children for Henry and Miriam, and they seem to have been born in several places including Sussex and Hemel Hempstead, mothers name Ash, and I haven't found any other Charles/Henry Hook so I am taking it, that they are one and the same man.
