    George Bird (1806 - 1881)
    This is the story of my great great grandparents, George and Margaret BIRD of Chessington Court Farm, and their six children.
    Georgie Bird, The Rhodrons & the motor car (1851 - 1930)
    Georgie Bird, The Rhodrons & the motor car (1851 - 1930)
    The fascinating story of Georgie Bird who started on The Farm, bought a Manor House and then had a fight to the death against the new fangled motor car.
    Nina Bird (nee St Paul) (about 1855 - 1935)
    Nina Bird (nee St Paul) (about 1855 - 1935)
    Nina was married to George Coveney Bird (1851 - 1930). Remembering they had no children, this is an extract from her Will dated 5th September 1933.

    Nina Mabel Foley Bird (nee St Paul) (about 1855 - 1935)
    Nina Mabel Foley Bird (nee St Paul) (about 1855 - 1935)
    Nina’s Will throws up some interesting questions relating to the ownership of The Rhodrons, why Leslie and not Percy benefited from her estate and the Everdon connection which comes up again, coincidentally this time, I think.
