Pepper and Barson families
« on: Monday 25 February 19 13:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'd be interested in any information anyone has on the Pepper or Barson families. Several generations were born and/or lived in South Kent, particularly Dover, Dymchurch, Hythe, Gravesend, Sheerness; my Grandmother, Lucy Alice Barson was born in 1880 in Sheerness, and died in 1969 in Folkestone. She was married to my grandfather, Alfred Edward Cowper.

You would be better asking specific questions so that we don't spend time looking for what you already have  :)

Thanks Louisa Maud and Rosie99. It's Lucy Cowper, nee Barson who interests me. Yes, she was the daughter of William and Laura (who was a Pepper) William was born in Kingstone, Notts in 1859 and kept a Boarding House in Hythe and I think had served in the RA. No idea how he met Laura. Their eldest daughter was Lucy (known as Doodie for some reason) and two more daughters followed, Edith Victoria, born in Gravesend in 1886, who married  Benjamin Herbert Hodgson, who had an Ironmongery business in New Romney I think, and Winifred Betty, born in Hythe in 1902 (when her Mum was 45 yrs old!) who married Charles Callen, a Wireless Inspector and they spent a lot of time as a family (2 children, Jean Laura and Diana Mary) on ships following Dad around. Charles also served in the RN in WW1, 1915-1918 I think. Anything you can add to that I wonder? Just to say, I know all about Lucy's husband, my grandfather; basically, trying to get more info on the immediate family. Thanks
