Family History In Stanford Le Hope - a Memory of Stanford-le-Hope.
I was born in Stanford in 1961. My family had lived there for many generations. My great grandmothers 1st married name was Nellie Barker and her husband died after the First World War due to the gases he had inhaled during the war. Her daughter Edith ( Edie) was my grandmother and married Ted Harriss. They lived in the houses in The Sand pit. My mum is Jeanette Harriss. Ted and Edie went on to run the Off Licence in Southend Road.
I loved living in Stanford as a child and remember going to Stanford Infant and Juniors where Mr Jones was the head. I Then went to Hassenbrook until 1977.
Remember walking miles in the school holidays to Horndon, Fobbing, Coalhouse Fort and down The Warren.
