John Grout(born 1817)
He was the son of a Thomas and Elizabeth and am seeking any further information on him.
Did he get married or did he die at an early age.
Would be grateful for any information.

house owners in penge
was wondering if anyone had any directories that covered Penge please.
I now know that my family owned four houses in one road, would love to know more - any advise or help would be great.
5, 7, 9 and 11 Morland Road, Penge, Beckenham
Catherine Amos seems to be the main person (born 1844 - d 1935)
Ellis lived there in 1917 (her brother)
but I also know that her sister Mary apparently lived there, followed by her neices Catherine, Eleanor and at some stage Annie
Id love to know (if at all possible) how they managed to own that amount of houses in same street. Who these properties belonged to firstly.
and any other information about them.
would love some help on this please.
as would like to tell my elderly father - as he remembers some of these relatives but is getting rather muddled.
thanks very much

Thomas Henry Brewer,
Can anyone help me? as I cannot make a connection with the Brewer family, does anyone know who this is??
Thomas Henry Brewer (Jnr B1886) married Lena Isabel Wills (B1898) in 1912 at The Church of the Holy Christ, Beckenham Kent the marriage cert reads as follows:
Lena Isabel Wills age 21 married Thomas Henry Brewer age 26 on 26th December 1912 in the Church of the Holy Christ, Beckenham Kent. Brides Father James Wills (Gardener) Grooms father Thomas Henry Brewer (Picture Dome Attendant). Witnessed by Charles Walter Brewer and Mary Proudfoot.
I have crossed referenced Brewer/Wills for births and come up with Henry B Brewer b 1915 which would fit.
