Allen Burch of New Town Stores

Martin Burch:

Christine, thanks very much for your message. My grandmother would have remembered the people you mention. Possibly my father would too but he is very ill now. Could you tell me where Danemore is / was? I visited my grandparents at Tenterden when I was a boy but that was a while ago now! I wonder if anyone ever talked about my great-grandfather (a very different character!)

Ted,
As I said I'd never heard of this website until Carol contacted me earlier today but I see there are a few members on the message board with the name "Birch" - all my ancestors spelt the name "Burch" back to the late 17th century so if these others are related it must be very distantly!

I would be interested to know if anyone remembers my grandfather, Allen Burch, who ran the "New Town Stores" in Golden Square from 1928 to 1961.

Ted,
Just for info. There are no Burches left in Tenterden as far as I know. My grandparents Allen and Eveline Burch were the last ones of this line in the town and they died over 25 years ago.
I found out about this thanks to a Carol Trotman who contacted me via Genes Reunited, a family research website.

Martin Burch:

Dear Ted,
Very kind of you to do this. I'm a great-nephew of the said Frederick (assuming it's Frederick junior and not senior) and by coincidence I work in the same road as his granddaughter, in Eastbourne.
I would imagine she'd be interested so I will email her tomorrow.
Regards
Martin Burch
