Mrs. Harley Firman

Post by Liubov » Sat Dec 08, 2012 4:54 pm

I'm looking for descendants of Mrs.Harley Firman.
Mrs.Harley Firman is a sister of my great-grandmother. She (her name was Maria) left Russia during World War I and married a British officer.
I know that my great-grandmother and her sister Maria sent letters to each other until 1950-60s and after her death our families lost the connection.
I have an address: 8 Blackdown Crossway, Walton on Thames, Surrey.
Also I know the names of her grandchildren - Idis(????) with the birthday date of November,3, Anna (November,9) and Nikolai (July,23).
I would be grateful to anyone who can provide me with some information on these people.

Hi Liubov,
You should repost this in the General Discussion as it has a far bigger audience.
Good Luck in your search.

I'd be tempted top start by contacting the current occupier of the address, as it still exists today.
If the Firmans no longer live there, the current owner might well know when/where they moved.
www.192.com will supply this info, but they charge for it !!!!

Good Luck.
I have tried a simple search, but have no results on any of the names at all yet.
With unusual names, it should prove easy, but isn't.
Do we know the officers name ????

There is an Anna Firman living in Moscow, which could just be coincidental, but she has a Nikolai (spelt differently) as a friend/relative...

Thank you for your replies!
Before writing a letter I've tried to find the street on Google Maps, but I failed. So I have some doubts on the address I have. Is there Blackdown Crossway in Walton-on-Thames? If yes, my next step is to send a letter to this address.
I will try to find out the name of the officer and it will make the process much easier I suppose.
And I'm afraid Anna Firman should be now around 70, so she is hardly on Facebook))))
So please give me a clue on Blackdown Crossway - is this valid address?
Thank you

Crossway is a valid address. Blackdown is probably the house name so the address would be 8 Crossway. It is off Hersham Road. According to this website http://www.primelocation.com/house-pric ... /crossway/ it was last sold in 1999. Here is a map https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=cross ... 24&bih=644

Hello again!
Is there any organization I can send a request about the people lived in this house in 1940-50s? I'm not sure that they stayed here up to 1998 when the house was sold.
Thank you
