Hi Joanne


Waltham Cross today is just outside Greater London in Hertfordshire though I think historically it was in Essex, but certainly in Hertfordshire from the end of the C19th onwards.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waltham_Cross


It might be worth contacting Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies and see whether they know.


Would you like me to move your topic to the Hertfordshire board in case anyone with local knowledge there might know more?


Regards

Valda

Hi,

Waltham Cross has always been in Hertfordshire . I think the confusion arises because it is somewhat close to the border of Essex (and Middlesex).
