Alice Maud was born in Chillington, Devon, daughter of Farmer James Martyn (born Tintagel) and Angelina Puleston (nee Godfrey), from Devon. In 1861 they were farming in Calstock, Cornwall.

In 1881, Charles was in a Lodging House in Southwark – he was a Medical Student.

In the same census, Alice was living in Northfleet in Kent, with her parents.

In 1882 Charles and Alice married at St Saviour, Southwark.

Charles was registered as a Surgeon in 1883. He was a Licentiate of the Society of Apothecaries and also Member of the Royal College of Surgeons. In the 1893 Kelly’s Directory for Penwith, Cornwall, he was listed as a Surgeon in St Just.

In 1891, in Carallack, St Just in Penwith, the family was Charles, Surgeon, wife Alice, Edith Maud, 9, born London, Mary, 7 born Teddington, and Charles Martyn, 2 months. (Charles was born and died in St Just in 1893). They had one female General Servant.

In 1901, still at St Just, Charles was described as a Surgeon, working on his own account. With him were Alice, Edith, 19, and Mary 17. They had one General Domestic Servant.

Edith married Edward Brown in 1906.

In 1911, Charles and Alice, plus one servant, were living in Grappenhall and Latchford Without, in Cheshire. They were listed as having had 3 children, two still living. Charles was listed at Lamorna, Latchford, from 1911 until 1927 on the UK Medical Registers. He and Alice were among the very many folk who took their retirement in Worthing.

Alice died at Groombridge Nursing Home in Chaucer Road. Their home address was Brympton Cottage, Brunswick Road – which still exists, currently as a Tile Suppliers, near the former Bay Pub.

The Matron of Groombridge Nursing Home, at least from 1914 until 1932, was Emma Messenger, Nurse, who first nursed in Worthing at Nightingale Lodge from 1908 -1911 and qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1927. She worked at Hull Royal Infirmary from 1906 – 1909.
