Kingston Blount, Oxon

Does anyone know the name of the Bake House owned by Harold Fowler Edwards in 1942 in Kingston Bount, Oxon. His brother Ivan and wife Victoria used to run it for him. Any photographs would be a bonus. Thank you

Hi Tinxie,

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

Welcome from me too!

Ivan Archibald EDWARDS and his wife Victoria are easy to find in 1939 - he is a baker in Hayes and Harlington area of London.

I can't find any particular reference to them in newspapers of the time linking them to a bakery in Kingston Blount. However, there are death notices for Gertrude Alice BRINSDEN  of Oakley Bakery, Kingston Blount in April 1940. A possibility? Most likely run by "Robert OAKLEY and son" in the late 1920s.

Robert OAKLEY died in 1923, his son George, retired baker, seems to be bankrupt in 1936.

From the 1891 and 1901 census for Robert OAKLEY and family in Kingston Blount, the bakehouse seems to be 4 doors down from the Shoulder of Mutton Hotel.

There is another baker in 1901 and 1911 in Kingston Blount - Hubert MAY. He is 2 doors up from the Cherry Tree Inn. It looks like he died in 1932.

In 1901, there is also a vacant bakehouse near the Royal Oak.

Not much help I'm afraid. Will try to find some connection to the EDWARDS around 1942.  :)

Thank you all for replying to my post. Your time and effort is very much appreciated. Further research shows that Ivan and Victoria Edwards lived at Oakley House, (The Bakehouse), 1 The Green, Kingston Blount. They moved there on 16th January 1941. This would tie in with Robert Oakley, the baker. I have attached a photo. Many thanks all
