Family History

Mill Bank 1938, Tewkesbury
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

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

Allen & Bros Grocers

Mill Bank 1938, Tewkesbury

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.

New House

I was born in Fiddington in 1947, in a very old thatch cottage, so I was told. we moved to Northway in 1950 to a new house in Elm Road - number 6. It was a three bed and living room and kitchen, we felt very pleased compared with the cottage. My gran was using the front room for herself and me and my brother and mum and dad used the rest of the house. We had good days and bad as we were still on rations. Mum and gran were great cooks so we had plenty of home made grub lol. Dad was working on the houses in the next row, it was quite a big site plus the first ones to be built after the war. We had 2 shops, one was an old shed, quite big and run by the Randles - they did groceries and veg. The other shop was the paper shop run by Mrs Scivens - she was a right old... Read more

Finch Family

My great-grandfather was born at The Folly, Deerhurst in 1886 and moved to Walton, Deerhurst, his name was Thomas Finch.
Thomas's father was David Finch and his mother was Annie Finch (nee Jackson). We know that Thomas moved to Phelps Farm in Ripple, Worcestershire and he is buried in Ripple church but we don't know where David and Annie are buried. Thomas at one point in his life lived at Ridgeway Farm, Tewkesbury but ended up at Phelps Farm.

We would like to know if David and Annie are buried at Deerhurst. Would be much appreciative of any information if anyone knew David, Annie or Thomas.
