This is a message mainly for Jackie Baldwin, whom, like myself I see, has the maiden name QUARTERMAINE. I too, visited Rycote Chapel in the 1980's and the lady in question in the kiosk was Rita Trafford, who had actually done a huge history project on the Quartermaines and through her, I contacted the son of my mother's cousin who had emigrated to Australia after World War I. My husband and I visited Australia in 1989 and actually met one Richard Quartermaine, who lived in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. What happened to Rita and her vast notes I do not know. This message was left on 28 April 2014.

I have been to Rycote chapel on several occassions as my maiden name was Quartermaine. The first time I visited the lady who 'manned' the kiosk asked if I would like to sign a visitors book which she only allowed Quartermaines to sign - this would be around 1983 or so, as I was there with my son who was doing a school project on his ancestors. According to the lady on duty there were visits from hundreds of Quartermaines, many from far afield - Canada and the like. On subsequent visits that person was not there and the custodian knew nothing of the visitors book which was unfortunate as I think it could have been useful for family historians. The chapel never seems to change - it is quite beautiful and serene. My second husband and I had hoped to marry there but unfortunately, in spite of numerous requests by many people (who I assume have some link to it) this is not allowed.
