In Search of Eileen Green

Will & Testament

Correspondence has been received by the editor of Haddenham.net from an individual who is trying to track down Eileen Green. Eileen apparently lives (or used to live) in Haddenham, and is named as a beneficiary in the Will of the correspondent's mother. This appears to be a genuine search. The details are as follows:

"My mother was called Ishbel Young, and she died on 12th April 2008 in Spain. She was born Ishbel Carson, married (1) John Orr and (2) Douglas Young. Since Ishbel's death, one of her friends (a lawyer in Gibraltar) has tried to find Eileen Green but without success.

I never knew Ishbel. I was adopted at birth, though Ishbel subsequently married my father John Orr. However in 2009 I did what a lot of adopted children do and searched for my parents. Sadly I was too late as she died the previous year but I have met a number of her friends, all of whom knew of my existence and have been very kind and welcoming to me.

From my point of view I stand to gain nothing but as Eileen Green was obviously close to my mother I would like to meet her if she is still alive, and equally it would be nice for her to inherit as my mother wished.

I have no idea of the connection between Eileen and Ishbel, save that Eileen's address is given as Ashtree House, Nether Wichendon, which from my searches is where Ishbel also lived at one point in her life. In Ishbel's address book, there is an entry "E & K Green" and we know that a Keith Green was representing Ishbel and Douglas in negotiations with a solicitor in the 1980's/1990's.

It may be that she is no longer living, but in that case perhaps you or someone in the village would know of any relations she had?

Thank you"
