Subject: [FEATHERSTONE] Nevill Bank/Street Frant Road Calverley Road - FEATHERSTONEs in Tunbridge Wells
Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2001 23:16:36 -0000

I’ve tried to collect together our Tunbridge Wells FEATHERSTONEs and all the
relevant bakers from trade directories.

It become interested when you realised Church Hill becomes Frant Road, then
becomes Nevill Street before it comes out at The Pantiles (also known as The
Parade) in Tunbridge Wells. Complications arise because Frant is in the
hundread of Ticehurst and depending on how they recorded things addresses in
Tunbridge Wells could be Tunbridge Wells, Frant or Ticehurst.

We have here:
Frant Road – George
3 Nevill Bank – George, Elizabeth and Frank
6 Nevill Bank – Henry and James
4 Nevill Street – H.
Nevill Street – H.
Nevill Street – George, Elizabeth and Alice
Church Lane – Alfred, Mary and Henry
70+72 The Parade/Pantiles – George, Elizabeth and family

and 22 Camden Road – Solomon, then G. and sons.

This is driving me nuts – I’m back to Tunbridge Wells to investigate further
as soon as I can.
