Hello Lesanne and everyone,

I have been following all the posts about Cordwallis and Denmark Street with great interest.  I decided to have a look at my Mother's birth certificate and it seems that she was born at No. 15 Cordwallis Road (not Street ?) but I know that she lived in 2 Ray Park Cottages in the early 1920s.  Can anyone tell me anything about Ray Park Cottages please ?

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

Lesanne, you're right.  Old Maidenhead would be a good thread.  I remember visiting the Hodges family and I'm sure it was in Ray Park Cottages.  It was certainly near the Moor and the Alms houses and a very long time ago! Betty "Hodges" was a pseudo "aunty" of mine.  I was born and lived in College Glen, went to school at Alwyn Road and Maidenhead County Girls. 
Anyas,as far as Cordwallis is concerned I've always known it as Road not Street and Ray Park joined Blackamore lane, regards Abiam

Hi Lesanne + Abiam,

Thank you for the info - have looked at Multimap and found the Ray Park area. Each little piece of new information makes more and more sense for me.  I feel a bit of a fraud really as the family only arrived in Maidenhead in 1890 but perhaps that still qualifies us as an 'old Maidenhead family'!!  The two sides originally came from Bucks and Oxon.


Going back to the original thread on schools - I still hope to follow up on school logs and admissions registers as I am told they can be a source of great interest.

This is all so fascinating, I am spending way too much time on the pc !

Thanks again.

ANYAS

 :D What time span for 'Hodges' down there? 40/50's Baston, Dean, Johnson.

  60's Pedrick. ol' Arthur Pedrick, with his yard on the corner, few pigs and chicken. With the old dog 'Whiskey' would travel in the basket of his traders bike.

 Then there was Horwood's scrap yard... another story.

 Any takers for Tyrells Buildings?  ;D

Lesanne,
Here we go again!!!  Tyrells Buildings originally housed the guards from Windsor whilst their new barracks were built.  It became known as "The Barracks" and was situated where the new Sainsbury building is being built now.  I think it was very poor quality housing and not a good place to live.  I'm not sure of the time scale but I think a lot of families were rehoused into Garden Cotts and Norfolk Park from there.  Not sure about that.

Anyas,
The Hodges were there 1920's/30's, My aunty's name was Betty Hodges and she married a William Hawks, known as Jim! 
Abiam
PS. Horwood is a good old M'head name.
