JOHN HAY, nursery and seedman
I am researching the Hay family, especially the children of John Hay, nurseryman of Leytonstone/Leyton in Essex. He married Elizabeth Larratt at St Mary's, Leyton, in 1756 and from online records I believe he had 6 children. I've not been able to find more about them to date, apart from Mary, b. 1767, who married John Hutchinson, a brewer's clerk, in London, in 1783. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who might have information on either of these families.
Travis & Florence LILLEY of 38 Leigh Road, Leyton/Leytonstone. My grandparents lived here in 1940's/50's/60's. Had 5 children OLIVE, DORIS, GORDON, IRENE & GLADYS. Previous to Leigh Road, they ran a dairy shop in Capworth Street. Also a very good friend of FLORENCE LILLEY, was LIL LITTLE of Griggs Road. Anyone have any details of any of the above?
Can anyone help with details of employees at Hitchman's Dairies in Hainault Road, Leytonstone from 1943 to it's closure in the 1960's? In particular a depot foreman who was only know as 'SONNY'.

red mail childrens home
Has anyone any info or knows of any books re the childrens home in Leytonstone. My father and his siblings were placed in this home in the 1920's by their mother who was trying to cope with cancer, she knew that she had little time left and her children needed to be looked after. They were put into the workhouse for a couple of weeks prior to the move to Leytonstone and remained in the home until they reached school leaving age. I think the home was eventually taken over by the Church of England in the 1930's and life improved.

With the exception of an inn (where the Blackbirds is now situated) there were practically no buildings between the house and the Bakers Arms. On the other side it was country practically to Stratford'unquote. Does this mean anything to you any information would be greatly appreciated.
