Late grandmother Irene Katie Jenkins know as Katie age 22 in 1936
« on: Monday 06 October 14 00:24 BST (UK) »
Hi I am trying to find out any information on persons who lived at 39 Approach road, Bethnal Green between 1935-1936.  I know there was a Phillip Farby and Ray Farby, who lived at that address from 1935 to 1938.  Also in 1936 there also lived there Arthur Frederick Haydon and Louisa Ivy Haydon.  If you are a relative of these or know any think please reply.

Hi,
Welcome to Rootschat :)
Not sure what you are looking for but electoral roles for the period give the above names including Katie Jenkins in 1936. Other surnames appearing to live there in that time period variously with people you have already mentioned are Bennett, Goodbody, Durham.
Perhaps someone might know more about whom you are looking for, if we can help in anyway just ask,
Cathy :)

Hi Cathy,
Thanks for your reply, Yes I have the other names you mentioned, but they lived at that address
In 1935, 1937 and 1938.  The year 1936 I mentioned the Farby was because they were there from 1936 - 1938.  My grandmother Katie Jenkins was in the house in 1936.  On the 18th April 1936 she give birth to a son (my father) at 214a Cambridge hospital according to his birth certificate, then lived at 39 approach road. She returned to Wales 6 months later but never told anyone who the father was.  Obviously she is dead now and probably was father is also dead
My father  is now 78 and it would give him satisfaction
If he only new who is father was.  Probably these names of people I am mentioning are also dead, but I hoping they would have living relatives who might know something to lead us in the right direction. Katie Jenkins worked as a kitchen maid full name Irene Katie Jenkins but known as Katie, for Glamorgan in South Wales.

Hi Christine
I think your chances of tracing via the Electorals rolls will be slim (in this case) if I were you I would look into your Dad having a DNA test (try googling familytree dna).  These test are not cheap but will give him a 'profile' and also show family names that share the same DNA.  It is a very fascinating area and I think may give him some comfort.

Kind regards
CD

Hi

The place where she lived in Bethnal Green, may have been a place, where unmarried women went to have there babies, and the father, may have been from where she originally lived.

She lived in Bethnal Green from when she was 14 so the father would have been from around there.
At that time you were not put on an electrol registar until the age of 22 so I don't where she lived
The first record with her name on it is 1936 in approach Road.

Thanks I will look into The DNA

I would not discount anything, she may have made visits back home over the years.

I expect you have probably seen the family trees online?, it might be worth contacting members. Philip Farby(Farbey) looks to have married Rachael Goldstein in 1930, though they have both passed away there may be family members still living.
