Barrow Boy - a Memory of Fareham.
Both my husband and I have lived in Fareham all our lives and we are researching our family histories. His grandfather, we believe, used to sell fruit from a barrow in West Street, Fareham, near the top of Portland Street in the 1940s and 1950s. There seems to be some discrepancy about his name. We think his name was William Tormey but may have been known as William (or Bill) Prince. He was born in about 1880. We would love to find out what his real name was and when he died but keep hitting a brick wall. If anyone reading this remembers him we would love to hear from them.
