Charles Edward Clark & family.

Lived at No.1 Railway Cottages

By Marion Wright

Hi, I have an ancestor named Charles Edward Clark, he was born in Pinchbeck Lincolnshire in 1864, sometime before 1888 he moved to Laindon. In 1888 he married Elizabeth Lawrence in Billericay district. They settled in Laindon, and for many years lived at no.1 Railway Cottages, Charles was a platelayer by trade. They had the following children that I know of: Edward 1890, John 1891-1972, William 1893, Lillian 1896, Alice 1898, Frederick 1899, Edith 1901, Rose Amy 1906-1996, and Henry George (known as Jos) 1907-1982.

I wondered if there are any living family members still in the Laindon area, I have been researching this family for a number of years and have quite a lot of information, if anyone is interested in their Clark family roots in Lincolnshire it would be great to hear from them.

Dear Louise l have just re read one of your comments and yes we are related. You are my great uncle Bert's granddaughter. I seem to have two Arthurs in my tree.  Did aunt Win lose a baby ??? Do you have a family tree?

l would love to make contact but don't know how as there are many questions l would like to ask. My dad, also an Arthur, talked a lot about his uncle Bert working on the station and he saw my sister off when she left for Malta to get married.  For years he had her wedding picture in the window of his keosk in the platform. Regards.

Editor:  I have forwarded your email address on to Louise.

I would really like to get in touch with Marion as my dad is John and his father was Charles and mother Elizabeth. When they passed on we moved into No 1 Railway Cottages until is was pulled down in 1972. That house Charles and Elizabeth Clark moved in 1888 and stayed with the Clark family until it was pulled down 1972.
