A curious case! Arthur Anthony Champion moved to Peckham in 1865, and lived at 51 Trafalgar Road in 1871. Son, Charles (Frederick) CHAMPION was born 1861 in Bombay, India, as his father was in the army. He was at home at the time of the census. (Father then a Commissioning Agent). However, between 1871 (probably 1874 as school leaving age I believe was then 13 yrs), Charles Frederick Champion completely changed his name to William John BLAKE. I can find no record of him under either name in the 1881 census which was taken in April (Father lived no1, Canal Grove). He joined the Royal Marines in August 1881 at Greenwich under his assumed name aged 20 yrs. Father remained in the area for the rest of his life (d. 1889) I can find no reason for the name change, and I'd love to know why! The only clue may be that w.j.b's early army record is not exemplary! Can anyone help please?
red mail Peckham Surrey
My husband's family had an Emily Collins (nee Walker) b.1883 married to Edward J Collins b.1882 Bermondsey and are in 1911 census 2 Graham St. RG14 1829 23 5 11 357 with some Walker sons. Edward died in 1934 and I think Florence E Collins (daughter) married Edgar A Neal in March 1942. (unconfirmed). Believe Thomas J Collins b.1925 married Lightfoot in March 1953. My husband says Collins family were pigeon racers and he and other Walker brothers would visit from Kempshead St. in Camberwell (pre-WW2). Mother of Emily b.1883 was Walker (nee Pobgee) b.1860 died in 1947 in Harlsden. Perhaps one of these are relatives?
red mail William and Rachel Tyler
William TYLER (b 1778 Colchester, Essex) and Rachel (b 1782 unknown, possibly last name of WALKER) are living in Peckham from at least 1811. William is a Cabinetmaker and Upholsterer living on 38 High Street. Their known children are William (b. 1811), Hephzibah (b 1814), Elisabeth (b 1820) and Ruth (b 1826). William Sr. dies in 1855, Rachel in 1848. Daughter Hephzibah marries James DREW, a mariner and continues to live in the house until her death in 1876. Elizabeth marries James MCNALLY who is a shoemaker and they live next door at 40 High Street until Elizabeth's death in 1896. William Jr. I believe, is also a cabinetmaker and marries Mary FORD and moves to Greenwich. Ruth marries Charles BROWNE. Would like to talk with anyone who is researching this family.
