Hi Larry. Quite by chance I was browsing Rye and saw your message. My email is [email protected] and would be delighted to hear from you. I am currently in Mississauga, Ontario and will be back in Manado, Indonesia next month. Have been there some 15 yrs. Brian.

Spring Cresent

I lived on Military Road #61, until 1951 and Spring Crescent was toward town, before "Brass Knocker" row. I think the Ethertons lived across from the Globe Inn.

Message for Shelley Jebb

Brian Hatter:

Shelley: Thanks for the reply. I lived at 61 Military Road opposite the Globe Inn and about 200 yds along from us were the houses I regarded as the Workhouses where mostly indigenous families lived. There were about 4 or 6 units in stone.

Message for Caroline Orr

26th September 2006

Brian Hatter:

Caroline Orr: Sorry for the delay in replying but have been back to Canada.
I am no longer the Principal or Vice Director at MIS and would not recommend it as a place to teach. There have been many teachers (9+) who have resigned since the end of the last semester. There is only one true "Bule" from the UK and she plans to leave next year after finishing courses at
the university here. Most teachers are from the Philippines or local hire. Salaries are the minimum Ind Govt allows at NULL600us / month.

Message for Paddyanne Turner

26th September 2006

Brian Hatter:

Paddyanne Turner: I think there were two such places. The Old Alms Houses (workhouse?) were on Military Road where I lived many years ago.
The Rye Hospital is on Rye Hill although I think the original one was on Mermaid Street from what I remember my father told me. Hope this helps.. Try finding a copy of Leo Vidler's "History of Rye" where there will be the details.

Message for Caroline Orr

24th June 2006

Brian Hatter:

Caroline: Thanks for the email. I believe Jeremy Barnes also mentioned your interest in MIS.
I am presently the Principal of Middle and High School and on vacation in Montreal, Canada. I intend returning to Manado July 8th.
I am waiting for the current enrollment for 2006-2007 so cannot give you a more definitive answer about our teacher needs. School starts on July 17th.
I may be able to give you more info this weekend about Lokon and other schools in the area. Essentially you need a sponsor to be able to work in Indonesia; this Kitas is obtained outside the country.
Best regards, Brian.

Pottingfield Estate

18th January 2006

Brian Hatter:

Jane: Hi Jane.
I have just receved your email via my other address. I don't remember many of the people in Pottingfield estate as I was in Loughborough College when my mother, Lottie and my father Les (lie) moved there from Military Road.
My Dad was the town baker for many years with Clarkes in the Mint and then with Jempsons in Peasmarsh and Longs in the High Street.
Presently I am in Indonesia as the Vice Director and Principal of Manado International School where its the rainy season (3" last night!)
I have a base in Canada but most of the time I enjoy the crazy world of Asia!
Hope to hear from you...Brian

Family History of Hatter

24th October 2005

Brian Hatter:

Marina Orme: Hi Marina.
Have found time to reply from Indonesia. I usually go to an Internet Cafe to get a reasonable speed. The one in the Manado International School varies so much to be useless!
Have not worked out our relationship yet. I did start a family tree way back and traced the Hatters back to fishermen in Grimsby in the mid 1800's. Uncle Fred was my mothers brother in law, Aunt Alice was her sister. They were related to the Sutton family in Winchelsea and the rag and bone merchant on Winchelsea Road.I remember going there in the War after mother had delivered the bread for Longs in Rye. We would stay for a while and Uncle Fred would take me to the forge. He built a tank for me as a bithday gift around 1943! That dates me!!!
Tell me about your family history and maybe the picture will gel!!
Best regards from a rainy season in Manado, Brian
