I am trying to trace the Ludkins family who ran a Coal Merchants in Walthamstow in the 1920 - 1940s. My Great Grandfather is John Herbert Ludkins and apparently had many brothers and sisters. Can you tell me the name of any local Historians, or local papers who may be able to help me trace my family. I have quite a lot of info but cant prove its the right family. Look forward to hearing from you.

Does anyone remember the Livermore family who had a shop in Hoe St. Walthamstow? My Aunty Loll (Laura) lived there with her husband and nine children. I think they were there for many years - certainly in 1937 when the family were growing up. I know they sold linens but think it was probably a general store. Would be interested to have any information about them.

Researching my families background, I see that my fathers family were in Walthamstow. In the 1901 census, the LOTT family were in Black Horse Lane, in the 1881 census they were at Higham Hill Farm. I notice the name Higham is significant in the area, but I presume that Higham Farm has long been buried by housing. It seem likely they were also in the area at the intervening census, i.e. 1891, but I have no details as yet. I would be interested to know where this farm was located and what is built upon it.

My husband's grandparents were married at St Mary's Church, Walthamstow in 1896. Albert Seaton LUNN had been born 1872c at Streatham in Essex but lived with his grandparents in Dogmersfield in Hampshire after his father died when he was about 10 years old. Edith Lucy CLARKE was born 16Dec1875 at Back of Castle, Parish of Walthamstow - the daughter of William CLARKE and Amelia SAPSFORD.  In the 1881 Census, William and Amelia and their seven chidlren lived at 13 Payze & Gatehouse Cottages in the parish of St Peter in Walthamstow. The family continued to live in the Walthamstow/Woodford area for many years. William and Amelia's children were Amelia Selina, William J, George, Jessey, Marian, Albert and Edith Lucy - born between 1852 and 1875. Albert and Edith moved from Walthamstow soon after their marriage, living at Godalming, Wickam and Dover before leaving for Australia in 1912 and 1913. My husband and I visited Walthamstow in 1999 but did not have all this information at that time. We have a copy of Edith's birth and death certificates and the church copy of her marriage to Albert Seaton Lunn. Would love to contact any descendants of the CLARKE/LUNN or SAPSFORD families in your area.  Do the addresses I have from the certificates still exist? Hoping to be able to further my research with your help Regards

I am searching for information about my husband's grandfather, Charles Rollo Lester. He was shown on the Electoral Registers @ 12 Clifford Road, Walthamstow from 1934 to 1953-Polling District East, District: Hale End. He was shown with Esther Lester, presumably his 2nd wife. She was shown on this register until 1966. Charles R.Lester and his 1st wife (Ruth Shepherd Harrison) came to Canada in early 1900. She was born Feb.21,1883 in Hartlepool, Durham, England.They had 2 daughters, Ruth Tranmere Lester (born Mar.01,1912) and Roma Shepherd Lester (born May 25,1914) both born in Vancouver,B.C. Canada. I have not been able to find their marriage in England or Canada. But I know that Charles returned to England and his wife stayed here and remarried. I am looking for information about his marriage to Esther and if possible the date of his birth, death and where he is buried. I would also like to have information about Esther's date of birth, date of death,etc. Thank you.

I am working on my family tree, and would appreciate any information on these families, who lived in Walthamstom in the first part of 1900.

My grandparents (Daniel Joseph & Eliza Ellen neé Stacey) lived if the Ballard Almshouses (Maynard Rd), and later my grandmother moved into the Squires Almshouses.

My Aunt Nellie Kate Quinn (neé Lee) lived in (31?) Bacontree Avenue, with her sister Lily.

Enid May Counsell married my uncle Albert Edward Quinn, I believe they had a son called David in 1936.

Lastly, I've come across a Mr. L. Little, who lived (in 1935) at 354, Hoe Street and was also connected with the family.

Any - no matter how small - piece of information shall be accepted with gratitude. Thanks.

Daniel J Quinn
