I am researching my family tree. Does anybody remember Wilfred Henry and Alice? Wood, they lived at the lower end of Wadham Avenue, backing onto the old cricket ground. This was way back in the late 50's early 60's.
Any details would be a great help. They had 2 sons: William John P Wood and Albert S Wood, who actual lived just across the road.
I am trying to find out more information about my Father's side of the family. It's the Wise family and they lived on and around St Johns Road, Walthamstow. I have been led to believe that we are descendants of French Huguenots. A friend recommended your site.
Hi, i would like to put the following message on your site please. I am looking for anyone that attended the Warwick Secondary School for Girls in Brooke Road, Walthamstow E17 during 1963 - 1968.

06 Oct 2010: Hi, I am looking for anyone who remembers my mother's family - the Wilsons - they used to live at 24 Winns Ave. My mother was Winifred my grandfather William and my grandmother Laura (nee Nell). They moved down to Maidstone Kent when my mother was in her teens I think - I was born in Maidstone. My mother has since passed away in 1987 - she was possibly at the primary school in Winns Ave. Does the house still exist?

WALLINGTON, MAY, MUNN
Amazing site. My mother Sheila Cynthia Munn was born at 79 Byron Road, Walthamstow. Her mother Edna May Munn was born at 76 Binstead Road Walthamstow.
I am trying to trace any body who can help with information about my Grandfather, on my mothers birth certificate he is named as Geoffrey Wallington (otherwise MAY), and his address is 4 Roma Road, Walthamstow, and is a fishmonger. My Grandmother was only 15 when she had my mother and when she married her husband adopted my Mum changing her name to Flack. My Mum remembered going to visit who she thinks were her Grandparents on her fathers side and them spoiling her rotten. My Mum's half sister also remembers going with her to visit and not having a fuss made over her. We also know her fathers family wanted to adopt her.If anybody can help it would be great.
Amazing to find your site! Thank you. I am trying to find some information regarding my grandfather, William Edward Wade who I believe was a grocer during the 1920's, 30.s and possibly 40's. I am not sure whether he had his own business, or was a manager. I do recollect 'Sainsburys' being mentioned, with mention of my grandfather being the manager of the first Sainsbury store! My father, Jack Frederick Wade was born around 1914. He went to Sir George Monnaux school. My grandfather moved to Cheshunt, possibly sometime in the 40's, where he had his own grocery business 'W.E. Wade & Son, which my father took over in the early 1950's.
I would very much appreciate it if you could post this for me. Thank you.

I came across your Walthamstow site out of interest in my father's early life as he was born there in 1909.
In reading through the 'ancestors' section I came across an entry requesting information on Albert Thomas WORMAN. The request was written by a Chris Spence but I have been unable to contact him by email, postal mail or telephone as he appears to have moved. The Albert Worman quoted was my father's cousin. My father is still in good health aged 95!
Would you please add a short paragraph to the ancestors page such as "WORMAN, Albert Thomas. Would Chris Spence please contact Colin Worman via email@example.com for further information" I would be most grateful if you could do this for me (and Chris Spence). Many thanks

Alfred Thomas Worman. I am trying to trace my grandfather's background I was told he was born in Walthamstow 30/03/1900 or 1901 and I do remember him saying he was born in East London. He had one sister known as Sis possibly named Lena and a brother called Fred. He was a twin but I believe the brother died at birth and it may be his mothers name was Rose. They moved to Dunstable, Bedfordshire sometime between the two world wars. Alfred worked for A.C.Delco there and Waterlow Printers. During the war he served in the navy and was at some point on the Glory and the Belfast and also was a chief petty officer during this stint. If you have any info ref our Alf if could please send it to me Chris Spence at 25 Grove Avenue, Finchley, N3 1QS or via email. Many thanks,
