CHIN­NERY/Hol­land-on-Sea and Ep­ping

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS -

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
