LILIAN MAY HIGBY   (1890 - 1982)

Wife of Joseph Henry Garner

 

 

The following is a report on the family of Lilian Garner of Canewdon, Essex.

She is known as “Granny Garner” and she was mentioned as a witness or source to some of the early writers on George Pickingill of Canewdon such as Eric Maple and others since the 1950's.

Some mentioned that she and perhaps her grandmother were part of a Witch Coven in Canewdon.  Others says she has Cunning folks among her ancestors.  But of course I’m in no position to prove or disapprove any of those claims since I do not have any of those books.

All I did was prove that Lillian Garner and her ancestors exists from available documents.  And in hopes that it may assist in connecting dots or corroborating with stuff that may have been said before about Lilian Garner.

Lilian Garner turned out to be Lilian May Higby who was born in Barrackpore in India.  Her father was a military soldier.
