Camberwell The Lion Mosedale Street

Thanks Peter. I would love to know more about John Webb's disappearance but my emails to you have been bounced back. Could you contact me through the link below please or provide an email address I can use. Thanks.

Mon Apr 27

Not sure how old this posting is, but I've just come across it while researching my family tree.

The John Webb mentioned above is my Great-Grandfather (on my mums side) At the time he was the landlord of the Lion Pub in Mosedale street, with his wife Elizabeth and 3 kids. The story goes that he was taking money to a bank in Shepperton when he went missing. When he was found he had 6s 71/2d on him. There is a report in the Surrey Advertiser of 3 February 1894 i have more info if you are interested

AVOID this Racist Shop: TECHNOBIZ, Denmark Hill (same side as Co-Op)

On the 20th September 2019 at 20:35 approx

I entered this Shop. I was looking at the Phones. I said Hi to the the two staff there.

One of the Staff: Asian/Arabic/Turkish or what, couldn't tell, decided to start speaking to me in a mock Jamacian Accent.

When I told Him why He was speaking that way (just because I'm Afro, don't mean I speak with a Jamacian accent. I don't!) He carried on doing this despite my annoyance and warned Him He was in breach of the ****976 Race Act, He carried on and said :He could say what ever He wanted as long as He didn't swear.

Matter has currently been reported to the Police.

Hello, I used to live in Warrior Road (parallel with Tamerton St) at the St Josephs school end. St Johns Primary and St Michael's & All Angels were the schools which I attended. Primary school friend Tommy Day, who lived in Tamerton St, introduced me to the delicacy 'sugar sandwich'. I recollect a number of occasions looking in through the large open shutters of the butter factory and seeing men dressed in white overalls carrying chunks of butter, the size of a sack of potatoes, and lifting it into a hopper, which I assume was attached to the butter packing machine.The sight of so much butter put me off the spread for a short while. Local family names I remember - Saunders, Pride, Tuck, Buttery, Curton, Clayton and Hope. There may be others but I wasn't aware of where they lived or I need to bounce off someone from that time and place. I will view this page occasionally to see if anyone responds.

The Lion Mosedale Street - missing publican 1893

The South London Press 6 Jan 1894 reported that John Webb publican of Mosedale Street had been missing since 19 Dec 1893. Subsequently, his body was found in the Thames at Walton on Thames on 29 Jan 1894, 20 miles upstream. There was an inquest, but no inquest papers appear to have survived, and there seem to be no newspapers reports on the discovery of the body or the inquest. Does anyone have further information on the circumstances of John Webb's disappearance and death?

Mission of Hope

Not sure how long ago this message was posted, but my mother was born there on 18th October 1920. She was ‘adopted’ by a single lady doctor from Bolton on 11th November, so would have been there at the same time as your Nan. I was able to get all the documented details from Croydon Council who now hold the records of adoptions from 2 Champion Park. Hope this helps,

Hi Tony,yes,we lived right next to the 'water tank', Think the houses that we're missing were No's 8 and 10.

The Grocers were on the corner as you say run by two brothers,the Rag Storage place was Dentons,they also had a scrap metal yard further up Farmers Rd.

Then there was the Butter factory too,the sweet shop was over in Farmers Rd as was the Dairy and Cobblers run by a Welsh Family.

Mon Feb 27

Hi John Lands,Pat Sullivan (Spud) was my best mate and also my best man at my wedding.

I remember the grocers on the corner and the Rag shop (Dentons) at the top of the road.i have no photos of me or my family in those times I'm afraid,but like 'Spud' I was a pretty skinny lad.

I also left school in1959,do you remember two girls there that were friends,their names were Kathleen Young and MaryCosta?

Last saw Pat in 1967 when he was my best man.

Mission of Hope

My dad was born in the Mission of Hope in January 1917. At about 3 days old he was fostered to a very kind family in Croydon. I believe other children came and went but he remained there until the start of WWII. At one point a little 'dark-skinned' girl was also fostered there and dad described her as his sister, which may or may not have been the case. If it is of any help to anyone, please respond to this and we can arrange to exchange info.

Sat Dec 31

The school may have been called Michael Faraday school. l went there between 1950 and 1953.

l also found it interesting to read that the corner of Albany road and Keesey street was once a barbers shop. That corner got bombed in the war and in 1947 my dad bought that bombed corner and built a big grocers shop on it (Bert's , number 366 Albany road) with a flat above and a yard that went all the way down to the off licence in Keesy street - opposite the red brick flats in Keesey street which are still there....called Arklow house l think.

Jean F Pipers and son

Just a few words on Elmington Estate and high rise blocks (2) they have all been knocked down to make way for new flats. When you drive down Elmington Road it looks empty as the British Lion Pub is flats

Southwark town hall has been sold off and the back knocked down, they are going to be student flats, The buildings next to the Registry office has now been turned into private flats and Oliver Goldsmith now has a new front joining the two buildings and you cant see the playground any more and last of all the bus garage opposite the park is now being turned into flats.

The road where the father redcap used to be opposite the Court is now a new Libery

Nothing stays the same but money talks when it comes to land. Jean hope your well, sorry St Giles club is still there!!!

EDGARS IN NEATE STREET

Hello, I was trying to find 133 Neate Street as my father Frank was born there in 1912.

I was wondering what your connection was.

My Dad was born there in 1917 (so fairly close in time to your Nan) and at a few days old was fostered to and brought up by a very good and kind family in Croydon. They fostered other children who may also have been born in the Mission of Hope.

In case you haven't already come across it, a history of the organisation can be found at: www.christianfamilyconcern.org.uk/history.htm

I'm going to contact them to see if they have any records about that time.
