Grosvenor Billinghurst Seeks a Home

Grosvenor Billinghursts Claire Fuller hoping to reunite headerGrosvenor Billinghurst’s Claire Fuller is hoping to reunite the artefacts she discovered with a family member

A Cobham estate agent has swapped property hunting for family hunting after unearthing a treasure trove of historical artefacts dating back to the 1920s during a clear out of its Woking office.

After deciding to relocate its property management and finance departments in Church Path, Woking, to its Cobham office, Claire Fuller, the firm’s Finance Director, discovered what is thought to be an old safe deposit box containing wills, school reports, conveyancing documents and share certificates relating to Mr Jack and Mrs Marjorie Chard of Horsell.

Claire is now calling for family members of the Chards to come forward to be reunited with their ancestors’ important keepsakes, many of which are almost 100 years old.

On discovering the container, Claire comments: “We understand that a building society stood at our former office’s address in years gone by and can only assume that it was unclaimed from then. The box really is a veritable treasure trove of historical documents, all relating to one family, and it would be lovely if we could locate a family member to be able to hand it over. If you are a Chard, or believe that you are related to Jack and Marjorie, then we would love to hear from you.”
