Glad I found your article John Knight about Cromwell Street, as my family history research shows that both my maternal and paternal parents & ancestors live in Cromwell Street. Jennings & Clarke. Is the pub you mention in Cromwell Street where the 'Buffaloes' were based as I have a photo of my Grandad, George Clarke with a large group of other men dressed in sashes and shields from that era I think. Regards Pat Jennings.Here's an article I wrote back in 2004.
Hello John. Just tried to upload photos, for the first time on here, hope they're okay, got a bit carried away, but they all relate to Clarke - Jones family (my nan & granddad) & some of their kids born in Cherrywood Road. The photo with the group about to have a wheelbarrow race is My Aunt Lil & her husband John/Jack & I only remember they son Brian & daughter Elaine, who lived in Cherry wood Rd in the 50s. Us Jennings family lived in Palace Road 1949- 1966 and other members of mom's family lived in and around the area, perhaps you might recognise one of them, like you said and hope you can give me information about any of them or the places. I will send this for now and see if I can work out how to take off the duplicate photos oooppsss.... Cheers Pat
