Haines & Foale families – Can anyone help?

I am researching my father’s family. My grandfather was Robin Haines and my grandmother was Adele Irene Haines. My father, Eric Haines, died 11 years ago and his mother Irene (apparently that is what they called her) died when he was 18 years old and that was 6 years before I was born, so I never knew her. I have found out that my grandmother had two sisters, Edna and Charlotte. I think that Charlotte went to Lodsworth village school, but sadly died at the very young age of 10 years old. I would like to know why she died so young and also where she is buried. My grandfather and grandmother are buried in Lodsworth churchyard, but I don’t know exactly where, as there is no gravestone. My Uncle Dave and Aunty Nell Haines are the only ones left in that family and they are also my godparents. I would appreciate any information you may have.

  1. I’ve just seen your message on Lodsworth inquiring about the Haines family. I believe that Nellie Haines (father Frank Newman) is my mum’s half sister. If you have any information I would be grateful. Thank you Daphne.

    Hi Pauline,

    Would I be right in guessing your mother’s name is Norma? We share a great grandfather, Frederick Haines who was born in Gosport in 1870 to Sarah Ann Haines and a father I can’t find a trace of.

      Hi Stuart, my Mum was indeed Norma Haines. Sadly she passed away in October 2014. I am still trying to find out more about Dads family. I did find out that my Great Grandmother came from London. I have been very interested in the history of her family there. Best wishes Pauline.
