Helen Anne, eldest daughter of Richard and Ruby (Isabella, neť McIvor) Sowdon married Adrian James Marshall in Cambridge, 1957 (divorced 198?). They had three children Paul (b 1958), Suzanne (b 1959), and Tim (b 1962).

Adrian trained as a chef in Cambridge where we lived, for the most part at 44 Davy Road, Cambridge, until 1963.We moved during the winter of 1963 to Keepers Close, Luton where Adrian had a job as chef working for Brockís Fireworks in Hemel Hempstead.† In the early 1970s the Marshall family moved from Keepers Close to Plumpton Close, Stopsley, Luton.† Both Helen and Adrian (Jim) worked hard to improve living conditions for us all and moving from a council house to our own house was certainly an improvement.

Life was reasonably happy in Luton.All three of us, myself, Suzanne and Tim, were pupils at Ashcroft High School, a reasonable walk from home.We all had a happy time there.
