red mail Hastings Rd - (North Evington - Leicestershire)
This area was my childhood upbringing, when everything was black and white. Mum would take me across two main roads to leave me at the swings. I met my best friend on these by giving her a black eye. I went to Merrydale school. My Father lived on theMerridale Rd. that opened into the 'Black pad' he worked for 'Bungy Richards' foundry where he would take me on a Sunday to feed the cats, that caught the rats. As men were thrown out of the two pubs on each corner of Hastings road on a Friday evening, children would avoid the drunks whilst rushing to collect a bag of scratching from Doo's chip shop on the corner of Morton Rd. If any body has any more memories of this area that could help me with my project please contact me. Thank you very much.
North Kilworth, Husbands Bosworth- Loomes - (North Kilworth - Leicestershire)
Earliest records for Loom(e)s show of a Marriage between Thomas Loom(e)s and Alice Pabody, both born about 1678. Assuming that Alice was living in North Kilworth at the time of her marriage, this being a 'local' name, then Thomas was probably an 'incomer'. I believe that the Loom(e)s side originated at Gilmorton, although there is a missing 'link' The family remained at North Kilworth for some time, migrating to Husbands Bosworth later, although a branch of the family returned to NK and remained there until the last, Ellen Gertrude (married name Bozzoni) died in 1962. Any information pertaining to either of the families mentioned would be appreciated. I have an (almost) full 'tree' of the NK branch of the family if anyone is interested.
