Francis George Haime (know as 'Frank') was born in 1884 in Donhead St. Andrew. He was the son of Henry William Haime, a Miller's Labourer, and Mary Ann Haime (née Gurd). By 1901 he had moved from home, was working as a General Labourer and boarding at Deadwater, Headley, Alton, Hampshire. At the time of the 1911 Census he was single, working as a General Labourer and boarding at Lowsly Cottage, Headley Road, Liphook, Hampshire. His parents meanwhile were living at Scots Hill, Donhead St. Andrew, Wiltshire. He married Dinisia Searle in 1912 in the Petersfield, Hampshire, Registry District.  They went on to have three children: Evelyn (Lily) in 1913, George in 1914 and Agnes in 1916. Frank enlisted in Hazelmere, Surrey, as a Private and joined the 7th Battalion of the Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment (Service No. G/37752). He served in France & Flanders and was awarded the Victory and British War medals. He died on 3rd May 1917 and his name appears on the Arras Memorial (Bay 2). He is remembered on the Donhead St. Andrew War Memorial.  His brother, William Henry Haime, who had emigrated to Western Australia, served with the Australian Infantry and survived. (NB. The family name appears to be Haime but Haimes was used frequently on records.)
