My Havelock research started in 1963, as I wanted to know if there was a family connection with that of Major General Sir Henry Havelock, of the Relief of Lucknow fame in India 1857. His statue stands in Trafalgar Square on the Charing Cross corner and in Mowbray Park Sunderland.
The surname is one of the rarer ones, which encouraged me to record all the Havelocks from the General Record Office Indexes, which at the time were held at Somerset House, then later at St. Catherines.
I joined the Guild of One-Name Studies in 1981, having obtained all the necessary records.
