Henry Rivett was my Grandfather on my Mother's side and George Drew was my Great Grandfather.

My maternal Great Grandfather, George William Drew, born 1857, in Epsom, Surrey, was a domestic coachman at Mystole House, Chartham, Kent, during the 1901 census and then ran the Railway Tavern in Chartham, from 1902 to 1909 with his wife Elizabeth. He died on 22 December 1912.

My Grandmother, Alice Louise RIVETT (maiden name Drew) born 1884 and died 1951, was married to Henry Maurice RIVETT and they ran the Railway Tavern from 1909, where my Mother Dorothy May RIVETT was actually born on 10 February 1913. Henry then died on 12 November 1915, when my Mother was two years old.
