Welcome to London Fleet Street


I have a smokers wooden pipe stamped RADFORD- FLEET STREET, it sits in a large nosed character . It is more than likely that it came from your ancestors tobacconist shop.

My Great great great grandfather was Francis radford. I am trying to research my family tree and I found your post which clearly relates to me. At the turn of last century Alfred Radford ( Francis's son) changed our name by adding Moor to our surname. Thus we became Moor-Radford. I have tried to find out why he added the Moor to our name and where it came from, but I have been unsuccessful. Your surname is Moore therefore is there any connection?

All the best

FYI: I'm trying to identify the age of a book and note it was published by the Homeland Association Ltd, Whitefriars House, 68 Fleet Street, London EC 4. Founded 1896.

The book may have been published circa late 1920s-early 1930s.

Have a look at www.fcservices.co.uk web site. In their family research section, it contains details of a Radford Family Tree and local history from the area of that branch of the family (Kentisbeare, Devon).

My family tree includes Radfords. My grandmother was Flora Bessie Radford, born in Somerset. Her family includes two brothers Francis and WIlliam Radford who between them build Holland Park and properties at Pembridge in the late 1800s. I am trying to find out more about the whole Radford family. Contact me

My ancestors, called Radford, had a tobacconists for many years at 146 Fleet Street, now the Car Phone Warehouse. I notice that on the opposite side of the road at no. 61, there is a newsagents with a Radfords sign above it. I am wondering whether this was their shop also. Does anyone have any information please?
