red mail Lost Elijah Waller
I am after any details for Elijah before 1846. I have the marriage of Elijah Waller to Priscilla Murrell (12/4/1846) that was at the Parish church of Eastwood. His father is noted as Samuel Waller, and witnessed by Samuel Saward and Margaret Randall. Census information shows he was born about 1826 in either Eastwood or Prittlewell. I have lots of information after this - but cannot find anything before this. Any help apprciated.

red mail Florence Osborne
Daughter of William Osborne a resident traveller on the bohemian Estate Eastwood around 1913. Would like to know the location of this Estate. Florence married my grandfather James William Green (born 1879) in 1913 and settled in Southend. James was once living on the farm New England,Prittlewell. I would like to know of its location.
red mail Henry Richardson COWAN Wheelwright/Coachbuilder
Keenly seeking photographs of the family or house of my grandparents, Henry Richardson COWAN (b. 1873 at Bow, Middlesex), Wheelwright/Coachbuilder and Fanny Esther COWAN nee PATTERSON (b. 1879 at Vauxhall, Surrey). They married at Thundersley, Essex in 1896 and settled in Eastwood about 1897. Henry worked at home and according to old maps the house was located somewhere near the corner of Southbourne Grove and the Arterial Road, then called Princes Avenue, Eastwood. I believe the house may have been one of the Pest Houses but am still uncertain about this, as an old map I have fails to clear up this location dilemma! In fact the family knew of the house as 'Pleaseant Place'. They had children Frederick Henry (b, 1898), Reginald Wilfred, Edwin Charles, Ernest William Robert, Arthur, Albert, Cecil Walter, Esther Fanny (b.1897) and my mother Edith May, born in 1915. I have absolutely no photographs of the family or house from this era and would love to have copies if someone knew this family?? or passed any photos down to descendants. Any help is very much appreciated. My mother is now 93 and the last of her generation. I would love to surprise her with some previously unseen photos! Cheers, Rob, Australia
