Post by Vallie Webster: Tunis Road, W12

I visited my grandmother who lived on Tunis Road from Canada in approximately 1967-68. I remember the Rag and Bone man who came down the road with a horse and milk delivered to the door with cream on the top. I also remember having to use an outhouse in the back of the row house. No indoor plumbing. We had to have a bath in a big metal tub (like a horse trough) in the middle of the kitchen filled with boiled water on the stove. Very different from Canada. My moms madin name was Hardcastle. Interesting to see the maps. Google maps also brings the world closer.

My ancestors (Dady) lived in Myrtle Cottage, Fishers Lane in 1900 or so. Do you have any information? Was it associated with a manor house?

Grace Jackson obituary
Grace Jackson, who has died aged 92, was an outstanding social worker who became director of the London Boroughs Training Committee, which educated social workers in the capital.Grace was born in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia), to Reuben Jackson, a prison governor in the colonial civil service, and his wife, Doris (nee Davison). In 1947 Grace came to Britain on her own so that she could study at the Edinburgh School of Chiropody. She practised chiropody for some years in Liverpool, Bristol and Canterbury, but in the 1950s was sponsored by the Home Office to become a probation officer. We met in 1956, and remained friends from then onwards. Continue reading...

Column: ’Richmond rental nightmare led to Property rating website’

We shortlisted a small flat located in East Sheen, on the top floor with stunning views of the London Eye and the Shard. We were looking forward to living in the vicinity of the beautiful Richmond Park. We viewed the flat on a sunny afternoon and fell in love with the place. We researched on the area, neighbouring schools, commuting options, parking scene, etc.; basically whatever we could find out. The flat was being painted when we went in. We were happy that we would be living in a clean home with a fresh feeling. Little did we know that actually black mould was being covered up!

Acton

Acton is a large area within the London Borough of Ealing, some 6 miles (10 km) west of Charing Cross.

Acton means "oak farm" or "farm by oak trees", and is derived from the Old English ac (oak) and tun (farm).

Originally an ancient village, as London expanded, Acton became absorbed into the city.

Central Acton is synonymous with the hub of commerce and retail on the former main road between London and Oxford (the Uxbridge Road); a reminder of its history is in its inns, which date back in cases to the late Tudor period as stopping places for travellers.

Acton and Harrow are the two locations with the most stations bearing their name anywhere in the United Kingdom (apart from the full names of the London terminus stations), with seven each.

Acton Main Line was opened by the Great Western Railway on 1 February 1868. Originally simply named Acton, it was operated by the Western Region of British Railways following nationalisation in 1948. On 1 November 1949 it was renamed Acton Main Line.

Together with the underground stations at West Acton and North Acton, Acton Main Line serves the GWR garden estate. This large area of family housing, bordered on three sides by the stations named and on the fourth side by the A40 road, was developed by GWR in the 1920s to accommodate its staff, particularly drivers from the Old Oak Common depot.

John Rocque Map of Ealing and Acton (1762)
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Greenford in the northwest to Hammersmith in the southeast.
