Hi All,

I know this thread is very old, so I hope that people drop by to look at it every so often.

My grandfather was evacuated out to Maidenhead in 1939, from Croydon and billeted out to "2 Lower East Street", which I believe was also just know as the East Street cottages.

If anyone knows of any relatives who lived on that street, have any photos or might know what school he would have attended whilst evacuated there please let me know!

He wasn't there long as he caught caught stealing a purse and ended up in Juvenile Court and consequently an Approved school, but it would be nice to know what the area was like when he was there.

Thanks

Oh 'eck anyas, better ask our nan, her side lived in Ray Park Cottages.  ;D

I believe it was demolished sometime ago. It would of been just off the Moor, behind the Almshouses, on the opposite side of the A4 (Bath Road) to Reform Road.

  8) Should rename this thread. Old Maidenhead Families.

Lesanne.  ;D

this is a long shot as the threads are all date 2007 ish. I have only just decided to do my recent family history, I was born in Ray Park Cottages (1952) and lived there until 1967 when they were demolished. if anyone wants info I may be able to help?

From previous post
Hi
 I found this site and became interesred as I  went to Elmslie on Castle Hill in the late 50s early 60s
I took boys up until the age of ten.
I am afraid that I can add no historic links but there are some photographs and  reference to people who were there in first half of the 20thC.

http://www.friendsreunited.co.uk/b/2abdc808-bdf6-484e-b427-c15337e5f9e8

I was a weekly Boarder at Elmslie and fairly clearly  remember feeling desolated on my first day when my mother left me there.I was barely six and a half years old. The head Mistress's name was Miss Westlake and my form teachers were a Mrs. and Miss Williams who I think were mother and daughter.

I was once given 'The Slipper' by Matron for using my bed as a trampoline. There was a girl that I think may have been called Christine. She gave me a  brightly painted  model of an American Indian totem pole about three of four inches high. I still posses it. She told me about sex. I was not interested. More into animals, nature and climbing trees.

We used to walk down to the public swimming baths on the corner of East Street & Cookham Road. I remember my fascination at seeing a the exposed valves and coils of an old radio that had been dumped under a bush in the park where the teacher would take us on fairly regular  'Nature Walks'.

I would be glad to hear if anyone else has anything to add that I might remember.

Picture was probably taken 1958-60 at Home Farm, nr Winkfield. Perhaps it was my birthday party. I think that the girl in front left was called Angela and was from Ghana. At the time I was living under the name Nigel Kirtland and pictured 4th from left in middle row.
