We returned to France having spent a lovely day with you, my cousin, Marion. Bryan is a great guy and made us laugh. it was good to put names to the photos of family and a pie and a pint after.To think of the many times passed your door and didn't know you where there.
Ann loved being there and I left with a lump in my throat , sad to be leaving and for the missing years.
Having a borrowed name all my life I am grateful for kind words and will never be able to eat a packet of crisps again without thinking of you and wondering what a Palmers Perfect tastes like.hahaha xx

My maiden name was Hunter-Rowe and I was born in Upwell. My paternal grandmother was Maud Russell from Euximoor. She had brothers names, Herbert, Stanley and Jim from my memory. I was born to her son Russell Hunter-Rowe in 1952. I am still in touch with my Dad’s sister’s children, John and Jennifer Scott, both from Upwell and the children of Edna. Just FYI.

My wife Ann and I visited the respective churches of my great grandfather and grandfather on Saturday 17/08/2019.
25 years since our last visit either our memories are fading or their has been deterioration or movement of their head stones. The stones were clearly legible at the time but a quarter of a century is a long time for friable stone.
We scanned the cemetery in increasing circles and sadly found nothing.
I will right to the respective churches just in case we missed them.
Neville and I have made direct contact but after just a hello from your good self I have not yet received the full email you spoke of and I only hope your in good health.
Next week I will be meeting my cousin Marion for the first time since Uncle Cyrils send off. We have had some good email exchange meanwhile and I am really looking forward to seeing her.
During my visit to Hilgay on saturday I had a couple in the Rose & Crown where I learned there are Malcolm and Anthony Palmer living in the village.
I didn't want to cold call but it would be nice to know if they are relatives if any one knows.
Good wishes.

Hi Neville,
Thanks for contacting me. I live in France but either way it is along way to share a pint and more is the pity.
I met Mervyn back in the seventies when I was driving mum around Norfolk one weekend after she had a week at great aunt Veras (Becky?) in Hunstanton . Mum had tea with him while my younger brother and I had a pint in the Local at Hilgay. Prior to that she had visited Sarah Trundle (spelling?) who must have been your mum but you took the Palmer name and Mervyn I seem to recall kept Trundle.But then I could be wrong. My own name of Roberts doesn't equate to the name of Gouch ,which is on my birth certificate, and, as there is no father recorded on that certificate I was at one stage going to take on the name Palmer as it is the only heritage I have.
Mum spoke of you and Mervyn may have told her that you had moved to Canada. I visited Rene and Paul in Canada in the Seventies and later so Did mum and some of my siblings,of whom I no longer have contact with.
I recall mum would talk of another Vera, other than Becky, so I now know she is my Aunt and I wish her the happiest of birthdays.
I think you have answered why grandad wasn't at his fathers funeral though your mum was if my text above is correct.
History does repeat itself as I will explain when we continue to communicate as I believe Ann has mutually supplied our contact details.
I had a feeling mum was blacklisted also in some ways as she did choose to stay with your dad when the split came and also I knew she was a bit of a stirrer as well in later life.
Weather you like it or not you are my Uncle Neville and I am glad you have written, though you will be able to tell me much, much more than I can tell you.
Thank you for confirming grandads place of rest and when I visit, in your name, I'll add another wild flower to the bunch that I will pick from the paths he knew.
All the best to you Neville and we'll chat later.

Neville A Palmer
Hi Stu! I am one of the children of Frisco (Francisco Charles Parker Palmer). Born in 1940 at Crowhall Denver. I have a Sister Vera who lives in Felixstowe, (she was 89 yesterday), brother Mervyn in Downham Market, brother Teddy died in 1943 & buried in Denver cementry of Sandy Lane & sister Jocelyn in Downham. The names of Ken, Renee, Cyril & your mum are our step brothers/sisters. You are correct in saying my dad is buried in Denver cementry, I have visited the grave a few times, it is in very poor condition, the lead writing was all falling out over the years (79). I guess one of the young girls that caught my dad's eye was my mother!!! The rest is history. After that affair I guess he was black listed from the Palmer Family. I had uncles/aunts, cousins who would not acknowledge we were relatives. Ken & his family were very good friends with my brother Mervyn & Renee who lived in Niagra Falls Canada & I were very good friends. Many years she gave me a prayer book that was my Dad's & it was given to him in 1891 when he was 5 years old by his Aunt Mary Jewson. So after all this I guess I am your Uncle! I live in Canada & have since 1972 I gather that you live in Australia. I would like to keep in touch with you as we have many stories to tell. Have to work out how to swap email addresses. Take care Neville.

No more a technophobe than I.
I have received Ann MCs joint response to you and I and have read as much of the links she provided to no avail, our problem of communicating remains unresolved so I am going to take a punt on giving you my business web site address, at best you can contact me on that and at worse it could drum up more enquiries that'll have to wait until 2020, haha!
It must have broke your heart to have your daughter leave for such distant shores.We all live within 30 minutes at most ,and our in laws parents also, but I guess we have already taken the plunge in moving abroad and everyone is content.

I have just tried presenting you with my business address but this site has just blocked me as spam so I have now deleted it and try another way which involves you in placing a dot after the abbreviation of world wide web and then typing in aquapierre immediately after then adding another dot immediately after that and follow that with c o m but put them closer together.
I'm sure you'll sort it out and I'll receive your direct contact soon.

I;m not sure how this works either .! I;m not a great technophobe.!
Perhaps someone can come up with an answer .
Looks like our families are still spreading worldwide ,as my daughter and family are also naturalised Aussies as well . Must be something in the blood . ! Marion xx

Hi again Marion,
It is a none secure site, maybe that is the reason and for our security.

Hi Marion
I'v' just signed in to see if you had responded to my reply and although it went this site, timed and dated, I've logged in only to see that it has been pulled.
I made a positive response to you with nice memories of the Kent Palmers and can't understand why they have pulled my email other than agreeing to write and mentioning that I would leave it to you initiate a contact as I don't know this sites protocol in respect to exchanging email addresses.
I will log on again later in the hope that you receive this.

On second thoughts Frisco may be sleeping in Denver, it's been so long since I last visited, but I'll be there in August whatever.
