Kent - Deal: Rosway House, Middle Deal Road

With grateful thanks to Mark Hudson for providing this photo of Rosway House.

Deal is a coastal town in Kent, 8 miles north-east of Dover and 8 miles south of Ramsgate.  The coast of France is approximately 25 miles from the town and is visible on clear days.

Rosway House on Middle Deal Road, Deal, was the home of George and Marian Coleman (George was the uncle of Julius Sladden).  The Colemans were living there by the time of the 1881 census, George having retired from the Merchant Service by this time.  George’s brother, John Noakes Coleman, was living at Kent House, Upper Deal Road; their wives were also related, George’s wife, Marian (née Rees), being the first cousin of John’s wife, Sarah (née Pocock).

George died at Rosway in 1903.  Marian remained living there until about 1908.
