red mail Lott/ Terry
1. Ellen & Walter Lott moved to 26 Myddleton Road circa 1880 - Walter died aged approx. 34 in 1889 - the same year their daughter Ellen Louisa Lott was born. Precipitated a crisis: their son George Francis Lott went to Barnardos (later to Canada) and the two Ellens moved to 46 Warberry Road, Tottenham, Ellen taking on charring work. Did Ellen re-marry? In 1910 daughter Ellen Louisa gives birth to George Francis Minski Lott at 14 Commerce Road. She is 20, unmarried. The name 'Minski' sticks out though. 2. In 1930, Sarah Ann Terry, perhaps married to Robert Terry, 9 Blenheim Grove Wood Green, writes that she is Ellen Louisa's sister. The Terrys later live in Morley Avenue N22. Anyone heard of any of them, please?

Fred Russell, wife Daisy (nee Darkin), and their two children Dennis and Linda, lived at 36 Ollerton Road, definitely in the 1950's possibly for much longer.

Daisy and Fred would be deceased by now but I am trying to contact Linda and Dennis.

Seeking information on Percy Edward Harris. Born 1885 to Jessie Harris and Emma Harris. Cook at restaurant in 1901 census. Became a Merchant seaman and served through 1st world war.

red mail Raven/Burridge
I am trying to trace a photo of the fishmongers shop at 303 High Road Wood Green that was owned by Louis Raven and his wife Phebe, formerly Burridge. This shop was demolished for redevelopment around 1965 but at that time still had the Raven name over it. It is possible that a copy of this picture is with a Burridge family in U S A. Thanks hopefully, Cliff

red mail Sandford Avenue N22: Building History
I am researching the history of my home. I believe it was built in about 1880 as a wendyhouse for the daughter of a family. I guess the main house must have been big as we live in this "wendyhouse"! It later became an Iron Foundry (I will add the name of the owners when I have checked), then during WW2 it became a factory for the manufacture of goggles for the RAF. In the 50s it was a toy factory, and then in the 60s became an art studio for a famous artist. (The previous owner knows who this was & I hope to find this out.) It continued as a live-in art studio space,till we bought it two years ago from another artist. I would love to hear from anyone who has information about this building. There are some extremely interesting recent stories as well which would interest greatly anyone who has spent any time working in it. Many thanks

red mail Welford Premier Dairies
Does anyone know of the 'Welford Premier Dairies' in the Wood Green area in the late 1800's? I have a photo of a Thomas W. HOWARD with the inscription "Welford's Premier Dairies".

John Mattock 1798, Kibworth Beauchamp, Leicestershire, married Elizabeth Neal in 1825. One of their Sons, Richard Mattock born Smeeton Westerby 1840 married Rosina nee Chantler born Hunton, Maidstone, 1842. Her parents were William Chantler and Ann Whyman. Richard, born Smeeton Westerby 1840, referred to above, was a Stocking Seamer at age 11. At his marriage to Rosina Chantler in 1868, he was a Butler & Domestic Servant in Mayfair. At the 1881 Census they were living in Middlesex and he was trading as a Greengrocer. Their children were: - Richard Arthur born Hunton, Maidstone, and the rest, born in Middlesex were Frank, Florence, Tom and my Grandfather, Arthur Edmund who married Ellen (Helen) Augusta Woodhead born Woodgreen 1884. She was the daughter of Samuel James Woodhead born Dover 1840 and Harriet Bagshaw born Pembroke Dock c1853.The 1901 Census has failed me miserably with these young adults.
Four of the 9 children born to Samuel James Woodhead born Dover 1840 & Harriet nee Bagshaw born Pembroke Dock c1853 were born at Wood Green, They were Ellen Augusta, my Grandmother, Florence, John Sidney and Cecil Cuswick. Their siblings were born at Pembroke Dock, Canterbury, Chatham, Elham & Shorncliffe, Kent. Searching for descendants of all.THEIR Grandparents were Samuel James Woodhead & Ann Cheetham. I believe Samuel James senior was born East Retford Notts., Lacemaker, 1810. No place or dates for Ann Cheetham or their marriage. Searches of the Census Recs. for Dover for 1841 & 1851 drew a blank.
