**enton in Harrow sub district in Hendon district.
« on: Tuesday 15 March 05 20:25 GMT (UK) »
I Have a birth certificate dated March 1866 which gives an address of  ** enton, Harrow.
On an 1881 census the birthplace is stated as "Frenton Grange,Middlesex. but I have tried this and Henton, Fenton, Klenton & Flenton and failed to find any trace.  The birth certificate is very clear apart from these first two letters!
Does this ring a bell with anyone?
Thanks
John Reypert   I

Hi John

I agree with Maddie, it is almost certainly Kenton.

I live in Harrow Weald.  Kenton Lane is a long road which runs from Kenton to Harrow Weald - I will look in our local history book and see if I can locate a Kenton Grange.

Harrow Civic Centre library has Kelly's directorys back quite a few years.
I discovered my own house in there an also by using the large maps available.
I was born in 1953,near The Duck in the Pond in an old cottage,and our old window cleaner remembered how it, and Braziers dairy were the only buidlings in the area for miles.My house and the one next door were built in 1905 and were known as College Farm Cottages.

John do you want to give us your rellies name? We'll have more to go on then.
Have you found them in 1871,or maybe PM me with the details and scan me the cert and I'll try and decipher it for you.I'm getting an 'old' hand at doing that ;D

All the best

I have just googled Kenton Grange and discovered that it is now St Luke's hospice.
Suggesting that it might well have been a hospital(maybe mother and baby?)

Also found this I think you might find it interesting reading John

"In the early 19th century the hamlet of Kenton was centred around the Kenton Grange estate on which a mansion of that name had been built by one John Lambert. It is part of that estate which today we know as Woodcock Park. Kenton Grange appears to have changed hands on several subsequent occasions and more recent occupants were John Gwynne, a lover of horses and a sportsman; also Albert Jeffress whose son Joseph, as some of our members may recall, was a miniature railway enthusiast. It was he who built and ran the narrow gauge track and rolling stock in the grounds of the Grange. Members living in the area during the mid to late 1930's may recall the annual fair held in the grounds of the Grange just off Gooseacre Lane, also the small village school located nearby."

Thanks to all who answered my query. I am in phone contact with a volunteer archivist at St Lukes who will advise me who it was who was employing John Bell(Coachman) in 1866 when he worked at Kenton Grange. For interest of anyone in that area he was the Grandfather of Sir Ronald Bell QC Member of Parliament for Beaconsfield. Tony Blair's first (failed)attempt to get in was against him!
Thanks again
