HK Reeves was a wealthy solicitor who lived at the Manor House and the Mansion in Church Street. He was a major benefactor to the Town (Sweech House) and the Parish Church (the land for the Parish Hall, where there is The Reeves Room). He left the town just before WW2 to live in his Somerset home where he died in 1959, again a generous member of his community.

Kingslea is a small road in Leatherhead. John has collected information about those who lived in this road who were affected by the Great War

I am also a member of Leatherhead Choral Society and 2018 was our 90th year of music making. I am putting together information about our history using such material as has survived in the choir’s archive and anything else I can lay my hands on. I would be happy to hear from anyone who can add to our knowledge of the choir’s history. I have no doubt this project will run for some time to come.

LEATHERHEAD, INDIA & THE FAR EAST from King Alfred the Great to Modern Times
Researcher: the late John Morris: working on updating the provision of his findings on the internet
400 Leatherhead Lives that have connections with the Far East.

Researchers: Frank Haslam, Liam Sumption, John Morris, Brian Bouchard (of Epsom Explorer), Lorraine Spindler, Ian Whitlock and others in the parishes covered.

Frank Haslam started this project with Leatherhead, looking for the names on memorials in the CWGC database. He has been greatly aided by the work of a former Records Secretary, Liam Sumption (who lived in the flat the Haslams used to have!) in the days before home computers and the internet.

Work is now concentrated on the lives of those who died, via newspaper and genealogy sources, although some names remain as yet untraced on the CWGC database. Help would be much appreciated.  The Leatherhead model has been applied to other parishes covered. Others have taken on and completed the task for Effingham and Mickleham.

The story of the Bland Family of Marylebone, Leatherhead and County Kerry, and their relations especially in the East India Company.

Researcher: Frank Haslam: in progress
Researching the history of the site of the present Windfield estate which lies between Poplar Road and Epsom Road in South Leatherhead. Windfield House, which was demolished when the estate was built in the 1960s, had mainly been the home of the Still family who are commemorated in the Parish Church. St John's School was at one time involved. The House became offices and the grounds were used for local events.
