     Eva Lily Charman was born on 26 June 1891 at Rogate, Sussex, England.1,2 She was the daughter of Fred Charman and Ann Sayers.
The Charman family has been extensively researched by Colin Charman and some of the Charman information has been provided by him. He also writes: Incidentally, Eva Lily Charman had another illegitimate child - William/Edward William Charman born 28/9/1911 in Mannings Heath, Nuthurst, Sussex. This is all the more poignant because I believe he might be the same person as a chap known as William Henry Charman who had been adopted by at birth, and had obtained a birth certificate for a William Henry Charman who was born in the same area at about the same time. Eva Lilys son spent his life believing he was William Henry Charman. Meanwhile the real William Henry grew up, married and had a daughter in the same area. Unfortunately the "real" William Henry's parents were killed by a bomb in Horsham in WW2 so the duplicate William Henry couldnt verify who he was. Even today, I can't prove that the duplicate William Henry was really Eva Lily's son.3

On 2 April 1911 Eva Lily Charman lived at Frankland Arms, Washington, Sussex, England, with her parents.4
Eva Lily Charman married Alfred Frederick Arthur Best on 9 October 1915 at Brighton, Sussex, England.5
