Bexhill-on-Sea in East Sussex Town Guide

Percy Carreras Robin

I live in Lancashire so it’s difficult to do my own research. I am trying to find information on Percy Robin and his second wife Lucy Evelyn Robin. They lived at Headland View West Parade, and Percy died here in 1967. The Archives have been very helpful and provided me with the obituary and address details. Percy appears to have been a prominent citizen in Bexhill on Sea. In WW2 he was Director of Shipping in the Ministry of Supply. He was born in Islington and became a charted ship broker with his own company Robin, Eggins in London. His first wife dies in 1956 and he married Mrs Lucy Evelyn Solomon in Rhodesia in 1958. (Not sure why as they both lived in Bexhill at this time). Percy was secretary of the Little Common branch of the British Legion, Committee member of Southgate Harriers, freemason to the Baltic Lodge, an member of Bexhill sailing club.

I am hoping to find a photograph of Percy and Lucy (especially Lucy – who used her middle name Evelyn). Bexhill archives have checked their index but cannot see any entries for them between 1958 and 1967.

Would anyone have any suggestions as to where I go from here?
