Site Development Notes:

28th December 2016: Page about Sir William Farren's background and school added, using information kindly shared by readers of this site.

Summer 2016: Commenced pages about my grandfather, Cyril Hooke, and how he won the Military Cross.

30th December 2015: Pages about Sir William Farren are almost complete, just a few small additions to be made.

30th September 2015: My father, George Hooke, died on 15th September and his funeral was held on 28th September. The funeral service details, eulogy and visual presentations can be accessed via the photo or from the "Hooke History" menu.

12th October 2014:  Pages about Great Aunt Mildred Hooke / Lady Farren are almost complete, just letters transcripts to finish off, and pages about Sir William Farren have begun. Once these are finished, I plan to tell the story of my Grandfatther, Cyril Hooke and the inimitable Granny Hooke who was the last survivor of this generation. 

21st September 2014: I have almost completed many pages of articles, photographs and information about my great Grandfather and his wife: George & Ellen Hooke. Go to the Hooke History tab and click on George & Ellen Hooke as the best starting point. There are web-links in each article which will take you directly to the same place as the menu tabs and you'll get them in a better context this way.
