CHINNERY/Holland-on-Sea and Epping
I grew up assuming my grandfather, Charles Latchford Chinnery, had died during the First World War, so I was very surprised when I found a record of his death in 1965!
I’ve discovered he was born in East London in 1887 but soon moved to Woodford Green, Essex. In 1911, he married Ruth Lawrence and they had two boys. Within a year of Ruth’s death in childbirth he married her sister – my grandmother. They also had two boys.
After the war, Charles lived in Woodford Green with his parents and sons from his first marriage until 1935 when he married Lil, moving to Holland-on-Sea. He was there in 1946 but after that there’s no trace until his death in Epping in 1965.
Descendants of his first two sons aren’t old enough to remember where he lived. Can anyone help me fill the gap between 1946 and 1965? Valerie Slade, by email
