There's a Princes Hotel in Eastbourne and a Princes Marine Hotel in Hove, both a bit far to be of any use though. There is a Princes Parade in Hythe, if that might be a clue... What info do you have on any of these businesses / institutions already?
Does anyone know anything about the Princes Hotel, Radnor (Executive) Club, Folkestone Trained Nurses' Institute, Athelstan School, Feltonfleet School and does anyone have any pictures/correspondence links to where I can lay my hands on historical stuff on either/both of them?
I see your post on family-tree.co.uk, where were these schools then? Were any of them on Earls Avenue? What was the name of the school that was where "Old School Court" (flats) is now? Or where you on The Leas where The Southcliff Hotel is now?
I see some responses to a question (your question?) on Yahoo Answers:
Feltonfleet School was founded in 1903 in Folkestone and remained there until 1916 when it moved to Surrey. However, my father attended the school in 1932, but according to feltonfleet.co.uk the school didn't exist in Folkestone at that time. In 1944 the school was demolished by a V1 and the destruction was reported in the local paper. What's going on? Additional Details 4 weeks ago Claude Counsell was head of Feltonfleet School and remained in Folkestone after the school had been destroyed. He owned the site and that of Athelstan School which was next door.

What are you doing with all this info? Are you working on a book or is it all for oldwestbrookians.cjb.net?
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
