red mail Selina Apsley (1864)
I am looking to find details of the parents of Selina Apsley born 1864 at Bromley Common in Kent. The earliest record I have so far found is in the 1871 Census when she and her sister were inmates at the Bromley Workhouse and Locksbottom. In 1881 Selina was in service at Clapham Common before moving back to Bromley Common prior to her marriage to Benjamin Wood. On Selina's marriage certificate she has listed her father as Edward Thomas Apsley.

My mother and charley were put in a home about 1915. She lost touch with Jack and Rose, Charley was killed in the WW2, in the Navy.
I am trying to trace a Smith Family Bible which went missing from my aunt Emma Wood's house in the Bromley area after she died in 1991. The rightful recipient should have been my father, who has since died, and who was very upset at the time. I would like to trace an Edna nee Thornton who is a cousin by adoption as she was friendly with Aunt Em before she died, and may know who has it! Obviously if I had had it, it would have saved me a lot of time and money! The Smith family concerned goes back through Rotherhithe and back into Braintree and other areas of Essex and may include an Ernest Walter Smith, my father, born 1908 Rotherhithe, John James Smith, my grandfather, born Colchester 1871, and Thomas Smith, my great grandfather, born 1840 in Braintree. I would be so happy to find this Bible, especially as my sister, her son and I are the only ones in the family to show the remotest interest in the ancestors! Barbara

King Porritt
Any info re Olive King 94 Victoria Rd Bromley Common who married Cyril Edward Porritt 39 Adelaide Rd Chislehurst December 1924 Their respective fathers were Joseph Porritt and Sydney Charles King.
In 1841 Princes Plain (or Rushy Road as it was sometimes called) housed a Brewery owned by JA Jones who lived in Pembury House during the period 1874 to 1883 and which is still in existence and is used as a hostel at present. Jones and his partner Venness gave up the Brewery which was a large four-storey building with a huge chimney and many outbuildings including stables and a coach house. It became the Bromley Steam Laundry in 1906 where they would dry the cotton sheets on the grass; it was thought that the sun would whiten them more. A Mr Woods was connected with the laundry but unfortunately I’m not sure in what capacity. (The Woods family lived close by). Harraps (a celluloid film-processing factory) took the property over in 1913 but it burnt down two years later. The Brewery eventually gave its name to what we now refer to as Brewery Road. The Chamen & Jennings Steam Brewery supplied the Tap, which William Johnson of Princes Plain ran. John Simpson also looked after the Tap at one time as did Mr Pring in 1869/70. The Tap advertised their ale in the Bromley Record of 1858 at 27/- (£1.35p) for 18 gallons!! From book written by Gill Humby - Drinks all round - driking houses of Bromley
