red mail ADAMS/FULCHER - Walthamstow, Hertfordshire, Norfolk.
I believe that Henry Adams (who appears to have been known as Harry within the family) was born in Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth, in 1904. I understand that Henry was married to Lily (nee Fulcher) in the Great Yarmouth area in 1929. I know that they had a son called James (or Jim) Adams who was born in 1931. I suspect that James was an only child but cannot be absolutely certain of this. I understand that Henry Adams and his family lived in the Hertfordshire and also Walthamstow areas for some years. If anybody has any information at all regarding Henry (Harry), Lily and James (Jim) Adams then I would be grateful to hear from them. I have been researching my family history since 1997 and I'm hoping to learn more about Henry Adams, a distant relative of mine.

Looking for information about Thomas Lovett, his wife Eliza Mary nee Manchester and their children Robert Thomas, Violet Eliza Gertrude and Daisy Harriett Ada.

Robert was born in 1880 at Green Lanes, Stoke Newington, Violet in 1883 & Daisy in 1884 both in Haggerston. By 1891 they were living in Walthamstow. Various addresses were Victoria Street, Colebrook Road, Selborne Road & Hoe Street. Violet married Horace MANLEY in 1905. Daisy married William Herbert DUFOUR in 1910.

red mail Mary Squire, widow of Walworth, Surrey d. 1797
I am researching Mary Squire who built and endowed six almshouses in Church End, Walthamstow in 1795, as a personal local history research project. I am intrigued by the plaque on the almshouses! On it her name is spelled 'Squires'. I would dearly love to find out more about her and her family. As per her will her nephew-in-law was called William Squire, a Haberdasher apprentice to a Mrs Blakesley in Mark Lane, London. His sister was called Elizabeth, married name Cook/Cooke. Their father was Thomas Squire, coach wheelwright, bp 1728, Walthamstow, mother: Elizabeth nee Couton/Cowton, Thomas's father was William Squire, farmer, buried 1744 Walthamstow, mother: Elizabeth. Thomas' older brother William Squire, bp 1724, may be Mary's husband? He was a box maker and died 1763 in the parish of St. Dunstan in the East, City of London. His will was witnessed by Walthamstow/Leyton residents. He left everything to his wife Mary. Mary was buried in St Mary's, Walthamstow although she lived in Walworth/Newington, Surrey from at least 1782. A Richard Mills from Morden was a cousin to the Squires. I cannot identify the record of their marriage (and with that her maiden name) although I checked hundreds of parish registers. If anyone can help or give me some advice I would be very grateful.
