My great grandfather, William John Wills (1849 - 1914) was a 1st Class Police Constable serving in Bapchild in 1878 until 1890 when he was transferred to Leeds in Kent.
My grandfather, Robert Wills (1883 - 1947) was born in London Road, Murston in 1883. In the the 1881 census the family where living in Gas Cottages, Murston. Do any of your residents know if these cottages still exist?
Also I would be interested if anyone knows of the exploits of a police constable during the above period in Bapchild.
