Clapham Home for Boys - Eric and Cyril Johnson 1923 - 1928
In an autobiographical note my father's younger brother
Eric Harry Johnson (born 8th February 1912) states that:

"When I was about 11 years old (i.e. 1923), the family broke up
because we had not paid the rent. We got evicted from our
house in Clapham, Bob (the eldest of the 3 brothers) went
on to live in digs while Cyril (i.e. my father) and I went
to the Home of the Good Shepherd, not far away. It was a
very good home. We had a most enjoyable time there. After
that when I started work the family got together again and
we lived in Lewisham to start with and then onto Brockley
and finally Lee, SE London".

Internet research suggests that the home was the Clapham Home for
Boys run by the Anglican Society of the Good Shepherd (Order
of St Benedict).

I would be very interested in any insights into the home
and the background to the boys' admission if any records
still exist.

Best wishes, Keith
