Does anyone in Lewes remember Colette Chapman?

Daphne Colette Chapman, nee Pate, was licensee of the Royal Oak in Station Street Lewes for many years. She was my birth mother and I was adopted at 6 weeks old. I visited her on a several occasions back in the day and it being a public house, I had the opportunity of talking to her without ever disclosing my identity. So I never knew my mother and rather belatedly, I would very much welcome anyone's help who might remember Colette. I believe she was a bit of a character.

This thread might be better directed towards the "Lewes Past" Facebook page. Colette was a much loved part of the fabric of Lewes and you'll find lots of people on there that will tell you lots of stories about her.

George and Dragon: Many thanks for the advice, my son has sent a message to ‘Lewes Past’ Facebook group about Colette Chapman so I’ll keep my fingers crossed that there will be a good response. It sounds as if you might have known her too and perhaps you would be willing to share some memories. Thanks again, Bob.
