My great-grandparents

By Josie Campbell

My great Grandparents Charles & Ann Blaker lived in these houses.

I believe they moved into Number 5 called 'Bickley' when it was first built. They are shown there in the 1918-1926 voters list and also in the 1915 Kellys directory.

They then moved up the road to number 32 and are shown there on the Voters List from 1927-1949.

It looks like Ann then moved to number 41 Preston Park Avenue from the 1950 & 1952 Voters List.

Back in the 1960s and into the 70s my family GP, Dr Freddie Eyton-Jones used to operate a single-handed GP practice out of a large detached house in Preston Park Avenue. He was a real old-school GP and ended every consultation with a jelly baby. Does anyone out there remember him?
