 According to my records picture was taken @ Whitworth Mill near Wellingborough around Summer of 1964 his butty was Quail @ this time, they would have been breasted up with John Henry & Rose Meese on Dipper & Argo also with them where Ron & Elizabeth Green on Algate & Brighton. Meese & Green are also related within the family tree & this would have been one of the rare times family where able to get together & catch up with family news.

Thats ok Kirsty i knew what you where getting at as a matter of added intrest for you ,boatmen had their own dialect & unless like myself you had been brought up with it you would not have understood what they where saying Brentford to them sounds like Brandford.

Kirsty i sent you another message but it seems to have dissapeared with the fairys so will try again i have records for a couple of Walker children baptised on the canal @ brentford send me a personal message with your phone number or e mail address & i will let you have them. Coal would have been loaded @ Brentford & then delivered to places from there Croxley Mills was one of the many .Hambridge are distant related in my tree through Marrige via the Jackson family.As i tell every one who contacts me ref info into Canal familys
,Most canal people where their own community & hardly ever mixed with people off the bank so as you search further into your tree you will discover most of the canal family names related in one way or another. you dont say what area you live in.I live about 6 miles from Brentford & still have connections with a few canal familys who settled in that area. do you know exactly where your grandparents married?

There was a William Hambridge, Canal Barge owner, but not operating in the Braunston area (at least in 1893). He is mentioned in a Court case -

Jackson's Oxford Journal, May 20, 1893

UNFOUNDED  CHARGE - John Clawley, of Summertown, was summoned by William Hambridge, canal barge owner, of Thrupp......

The newspaper item in reporting the Court case also mentions William's son "Henry".

Have now checked out the William Hambridge in the Court case and have found him on the 1901 and 1911 Census. He is NOT the William Hambridge you are looking for.
