He seems to be in St Leonards (Sussex) from at least 1949-1952 going by what I can see on the newspapers on FMPast. Letters to the editor?

If anyone's looking- try Hearne Marine Court as Keywords.

It would be good if we could find out why he decided to abandon the name Honeyball wouldn't it?

That Name change is  puzzling  me . 3 years after his Father died. Rumours were that Lawrence was the black sheep .That is  possibly borne out ,as James was the one named to deal with Olympia's affairs .
Olympia liked to be called Lady Honeyball (which she wasn't)and had a Chauffeur named Hyson.
She used to drive around in her open top Rolls Royce and dish out pennies to the local children.

Any idea where the Hearne part of his name came from? I see the Martyn was his mother's maiden name.

The name of HEARNE was the maiden name of James's Grand Father. Frederick1812-1895  First wife Sophia they married 1847.She died 1852. Had one son James Frederick 1849-1923 (JFMHH's Father)and one Daughter Louisa Fanny 1850-1916 (She never Married)
 Sophia's Father:-  James Hearne was a Page to King George IV at Buckingham Palace.

I was wondering whether James inherited money from them, so changed his name, but they died before he was born didn't they? He certainly wasn't short of money was he?

   At the time he was Domiciled in Guernsey living at ,GlenView,Fermain Road. Saint Peter Port,Guernsey.

Wonder now where his money went ashis heir, brother Lawrence had died by 1972 when probate was finally resolved.
