I am researching on behalf of my best friend Doreen (Venner).Have you come across Annie Mabel Venner born 7th September 1894 in Hurstmoneux or Robertsbridge Sussex.Her first daughter was Elsie May Venner born in London about 1918.Doreen is interested as she never knew she had a sister until last year!No-one mentioned her and Annie Mabel (her mother has passed away now).
Doreen Venner born in Gosport Hampshire 27th March 1934.
If you can shed any light on the mystery for my friend we would be absolutely delighted.
Also she would be like to know the name of the book on Venners that you mention and where she can obtain it.
Best wishes on behalf of Doreen. There is a mystery about Doreens place of birth.When I searched the Somerset House records I could only find a Doreen Venner born 3days later in Durham area - but she does have a birth certificate stating Gosport!
