Newell And Lawrance Families Of Wood Green - a Memory of Wood Green.
Noel Park Estate was established in the 1890's with brand new homes being built. Amongst the new tenants were the Webb family who moved into 93 Westbeech Road on the 5th Dec,1892, as well as the Oakes family who moved into No 57, plus William and Emma Lawrance who moved into a new home at No 43. The children of these families went to the Noel Park school, which was opened on the 25th October,1889. About the same time, the Newell family moved from central London to Wood Green. On the 21st July 1903 my maiden aunt, Mabel Newell, was born at 25 Melrose Avenue, Lordship Lane, Noel Park. She lived to 109 years and 225 days and died on the 3 June 2013,one of Britains Oldest. Working most of her life for her brother Harold Newell as a Fur Machinst and Finisher. Harold owned a furriers in Whittington Road, Bowes Park from 1946 til 1970. I worked with them as an Apprentice Furrier for a few weeks, before working in Bond Street, Mayfair. My dad was born on the 29th September 1911. Mabel told me how she showed young Ronald, the Zeppelin Airship L13 through the curtain "black outs" at home as it flew over Alexander Palace on the 9th September 1915. It bombed Golders Green that night. Ronald attended White Hart Lane School and married Margaret Lawrance in 1936 at St Micheals,Wood Green. The couple brought a home in Devonshire Road with a view of "Ally Pally". Mabel, Harold and their sister Norah(King) lived most of their lives in Grosvenor Road, Muswell Hill.
