Eighteen years of my mis-spent youth was in E17, though I lived in Abingdon nr. Oxford before that and was born in Fulham  ;D

My Dad - my handsome avatar - was also from Walthamstow.

I once bought him a mug, which had, written on the outside

I'M A MUG FROM LEYTON

and he pointed out to me that it should have said

I'M A MUG FROM WALTHAMSTOW.

I have 2 branches of my family that I haven't traced out of London yet. 2 births in Rotherhithe in 1803 &1807 (I'm hoping that these baptisms will soon appear on ancestry then I might find some parents whose trail might lead out of the city) and a marriage in London in 1817 on a different branch. But I'm not sure where the bride and groom come from as the groom dies pre 1841 and the bride is just born Middlesex obviously in 1841 and I lose track of her after that. So I could have true London blood. I grew up in rural North Wales though so I'm not a Londoner in that sense, quite happy to visit for the shopping etc but not to live there!

my lot are true londoners by default-I can't get back beyond their births in Great Yarmouth in the 1790s and arrival in the capital about 1815. They stayed within a half mile radius of the Camberwell Rd for the next 130 years-though it seems as though they tried almost every street in the district! If I can't get much from the Norfolk PRs, at least I'm getting a lot out of the newly released LMA records

didn't work the dogs, but my dad, his dad, and his grandad sold stuff on the markets (Lambeth) and later my dad built up a business in the welsh markets (Pontypridd, Maesteg, Bryn Mawr, Llanelly, Abergavenny, etc).  I also worked the markets with him for a while  ;D
