Towards the end of 2010 I was asked by the Greek Orthodox Community of the Church of St Demetrius at Edmonton to trace the family of Elizabeth MASON (died 1907, St Leonards on Sea) who had, by her will, left the money for the building of the Church (then an Anglican Church), in connection with their wish to commemorate Mrs MASON at the centenary of the building. The research was far from easy as Elizabeth and her husband had no children and, for a long time, I was unable to find her maiden surname but, as you will see, eventually I unravelled this very interesting family who 'made good'. I have not identified the marriage entry, although there is a possible entry listed in Steyning district September quarter 1859.
