My grandfather William Allen and grandmother Florence Allen ran Allen & Bros Grocers during the Second World War, with William's brother Carradine Allen. They lived in Oldbury House with their daughter (my mother) and my great aunt, Lydia Dennis. After my grandfather died in 1958 the family moved to Priors Park where they stayed until the death of Lydia in 1990. While looking up the family tree I have found that my grandfather was born at The Crescent in Tewkesbury and his family all came from Tewkesbury and around. Myself and my siblings spent a lot of our childhoods in Tewkesbury at Priors Park and have fond memories of walking into town through Conigree Lane, where the parrot in the primary school always spoke as we went past, to the bakers at the bottom of the high street, and then to Leopolds cake shop, stopping off at the mill on the way home and maybe the small shop in Abbots Road if anything was forgotten in town.  

Family History

While investigating my family history I discovered that my great great grandfather Elisha Brownjohn had been employed as the miller at the Abbey Mill, Tewkesbury during the 1830's and 1840's. Several of his children, including my great grandfather John where born in the Mill Cottage, also to be seen in the photograph. I was thrilled to see this old photograph of the mill which I visited last summer
