This may be nothing as I have only just started researching my family tree. I live in Godalming, Surrey, as does my grandmother Marjorie Spring (nee Reid), as far as I know she also has lived here all her life. Makes no sense so far I know!
Her mother's maiden name was Lintott.
A more distant relative of mine has done a lot of research into the Reid/Lintott side of my family and I am waiting for information from her.
So you never know! I just thought I'd post a message before I came up with loads of info as your original message was left such a while ago I don't know if you still use the site.
