Aussie writer seeking 1950s Hatfield woman
« on: May 15, 2004, 05:34:54 am »
I am an Australian writer, living near Melbourne, Victoria. I am trying to find a woman who once worked in North Mimms Hatfield in the 1950s.

About 12 years ago I purchased a little note-book in an antique shop in Maldon - central Victoria, and in it is a hand written "resume" I suppose, of a woman who had worked in North Mimms Hatfield. Her last 2 entries are:

'1958 Started January 7th at Lady Trenchard Abdale House North Mimms Hatfield. Left Oct 18. 1958 - Started 19 October Miss Marshal, Hawkeshead ouse,Hawkeshead Lane Nth Mimms Hatfield. Left 30th ...1962. Going to Australia.'

Please advise who I might contact to try to find this person? I'd appreciate any assistance.
 
According to the way the entries have been made, I assume Miss Marshal might have been her Superior. As a writer, I'm intrigued and would love to trace the owner of the little notebook, or her family: Perhaps there's an interesting story to be revealed.

As far as I know the Trenchard family still own Abdale House, Warrengate Road, North Mymms.  I would write to the house and see if anyone can remember this person.

Good luck.

Lady Patricia Trenchard still lives at Abdale House in Warengate Lane North Mymms.  Whether she would be available to respond I don't know.
