Hi Daniel,
I wondered if anyone has any memories or photos to share of Ann (Amy Hampton) & Jack Huddle of (I think) North Countess Road, Walthamstow, who ran their own dance studio possibly in 1950's/1960's. Sorry to be so vague, Ann is my Great Aunt and I have vague memories of her when I was a small child and that she was a cat lover. I am trying to fill in my family tree and would love to hear from anyone who knew her, the Hampton or Ellison family, who her sister Agnes Janet (my nan) married into.

Many Thanks


HOPE family - posted 22 Sep 2009
Hi! I just came upon your site during my search for information about my ancestors. My great grandfather, William John McMillan, and his family apparently lived in Walthamstow up until about 1920. His son, Henry (my grandfather), was an apprentice toolmaker at the AEC plant there. I think they may have lived at 40 Grosvenor Park Road because I came across that address scribbled on a WWI military record that may relate to his brother, Alfred, who worked for a music store before they all moved to Australia. I do know that my grandmother, Winifred Hope, met Henry while he was living in Walthamstow and followed him to Australia to marry in 1924. Her father, John James Hope, was a printer and the family lived at 26 Higham Hill Road. I am told the family attended a Baptist church in Higham Hill Road. Any information about either family would be most appreciated. Best wishes,
Jeff Bird, from Australia email

HAGGER & CHATTERS - posted 12 Mar 2009
Does anyone have any information about a Chatters or Hagger family living in Walthamstow in about 1810? I am particularly interested in finding a baptism record for Thomas (Hagger or Chatters) who was born about 1810 and who was transported to Australia in 1829. Thanks.

I am trying to trace the family of Winifred Violet Huxley, my father's first wife, who was born in 1899 and died tragically young in September 1928, after only six years of marriage to my father, Frank Morley (whose family lived at 160 Forest Road - a boot and shoe repair shop). The young couple lived at 6 Canning Road. The Huxley family lived at 33 Gamuel Road and Winifred had a younger brother and an older sister. The children possibly attended Gamuel Road School.Their father was called Joseph Huxley and he was a dock clerk. The family lived at 33 Gamuel Road.
I have some documentation and a few stunning photos of Winifred, which I would love to share with any descendants of her brother or sister. Winifred was also godmother to my cousin, Leslie King, now 80 and living in South Benfleet.
If anyone knows of the Huxleys I would be so grateful if you would get in touch with me (Pam Stockwell) at email

Doing some family tree research for an elderly church friend as a gift. The HAWTON family lived in Downsfield Rd, Walthamstow, in 1901. Also ran the Hawton (Private/Commercial) Hotel. The HICKEY family lived variously in Markhouse Rd, Arkley Rd, Downsfield Rd. The families also had City/Hackney links. I know she would particularly welcome anything still available about the family hotel.

Looking for descendants of William and Mary-Jane Hurst who lived in Walthamstow from 1800's - 1952,Harold William Hurst and wife Edith immigrated to Canada 1921.

I am researching my HUMFREY family who lived at Rose Cottages No. 6 Collard Rd. Some years ago I put a query into the Family Tree Magazine looking for information on this street and hopefully of my Great Grandfather William Chapman Humfrey and his family. My Grandfather, Arthur, being the second youngest child born in Walthamstow. I found the family on the 1881 Census but when I went to look on the 1891 Census No. 6 Rose Cottages seems to be missing. Other numbers in the street are still there.

A couple of the replies that I received through Family Tree came from people who had once lived in the street but could not remember No. 6. I am wondering whether the early numbers where pulled down sometime during the 1880's. Collard Rd. now no longer exists as it suffered from WW11 bombing so the houses where pulled down and the street eliminated. I don't know what is there now.  Would there be somebody out there who can answer my question. I'm not quite sure where to look for them at present. I can be contacted on email June Welsby
