On 7th July 1857 John James Chase and Mary Ann Weekes were married at St John the Baptist Hoxton, he of full age and she a minor. Both parties list their place of residence as Ely Place, yet according to other information, this street was not named until 1861.

Worked in the vicinity of my ancestor’s house,
Between the years 1982-1998 (unknown to me at the time) I worked in an office close to the site of my ancestors cottage. I discovered this when researching family history - the cottage was mentioned in the 1871 census for Colindeep Lane/Ancient Street coming up from the Hyde. The family lived in the ares betwen 1805 and 1912.

Highbury Corner V1 Explosion
Grandma described the V1 explosion at Highbury Corner on many occasions. She was working in the scullery when the flying bomb landed. The blast shattered all the windows in the block of flats and blew off the bolt on her front door. As she looked out the front room window, people in various states of injury and shock were making their way along Highbury Station Road. One man in particular, who was bleeding profusely from glass shard wounds to his neck, insisted in getting home to see if his family was all right. Others were less fortunate. Len, the local newsagent, comforted a man, who had lost both legs caused by the blast, until the victim succumbed to his injuries. The entire area was ravaged and following are statistics. The flying bomb landed during lunch hour (12:46 p.m.) on June 27th 1944. 26 people lost their lives, 84 were seriously injured and 71 slightly injured.

Henry James Hirst
My second great grandfather Henry James Hirst was born at 18 New Road on 11 February 1861. He was the eighth of the eleven children of Rowland and Isabella Hirst. I think that this part of New Road was also known at the time as Gloucester Terrace.

Beckenham Road on 24 April 1903, looking west from Sidney Road. Begun just before 1880, the buildings on the south (left) side were originally Adeline Terrace, a row of private houses. Eight years after the opening of Clock House Station in 1890 they were converted into shops. The cottages in the south side are slightly newer (c.1881) and remained predominantly residential. On the far left are the gates of Sydney Lodge, the only pre-suburban survivor in this part of the road. Only the gabled building on the far right remains this side of the bridge. The rest of the buildings were destroyed on 2 August 1944 when a V1 flying bomb made a direct hit on Mrs Richards’ dining rooms towards the far end of the parade on the left. It fell during the lunch hour and 44 people were killed. The road was widened after the war, completely changing the character of the area.
