Steve and Pauline Jones’ Family History
If you don’t know where you came from, you won’t know where you are going. You have to study your history. Gil Scott-Heron

The Luchford Family of Snodland, Kent

The Luchford family lived in the the Snodland, Malling and Rochester areas of Kent. There are links by marriage to two other Kentish families in which we have an interest: Parris and Roots. The picture is Harry George Ernest Luchford MC who served in the Royal Flying Corps, 20th Squadron, during World War 1 (tap/click to enlarge). Read about his victories in the air between 13 June 1917 and 21 October 1917 here (opens in new window). He was born on 28 October 1894 in Lucknow, India where his father George James Luchford was serving as Garrison Quartermaster Sergeant with the 1st Battalion, East Lancashire Regiment. Harry was killed in action on 2 December 1917 in the vicinity of Zonnebeke, Belgium when his Bristol F2b plane was shot down by Walter von Bülow-Bothkamp. Harry is remembered at the Arras Flying Services Memorial. His brother Cyril Gordon Luchford (1898-?) was also awarded the Military Cross for his service during World War 1 as a Lieutenant in the Northumberland Fusiliers. Cyril survived the war and emigrated to Australia in 1922. We have much more information to share about the Luchford family, over four generations, starting with James Luchford (1770-1836).
