A comprehensive survey of the Reffell family of one hundred years ago..

The Black Horse Gomshall

Just two properties along from Bourneside where William Joseph Reffell and family lived, the Black Horse Inn & Brewery was still goiung strong in 1911.

The landlord was Roger Robert Rawlins who came from Kensington and his wife Gertrude Louise. At that time they had only been married four years and sadly their first child had died.

Living with them were two local sisters who were employed as servants, Ada Alice & Elizabeth Sarah Minns.
