Paddington Little Westbourne Tce & Little Melbourne St  

After at least 7 generations living in a few tiny villages in Kent, some of my ancestors made THE BIG MOVE, to Little Westbourne Tce, Paddington, then to 33 Little Melbourne St, Paddington. She (sadly) then died after having 12 children, but he remarried and set off with new wife and some of the children on the "Buffalo" (1st Fleet to South Australia) to be part of founding Adelaide. This one generation travelled more by far that all the other generations in total. But what happened to Little Westbourne Tce and Little Melbourne St? What would life have been like there in 1830 - 1835?

Paddington Mary Jane or Mabel COUCHMAN info please.  


Can anyone help me trace my father's family history? My father was James Arthur Grieve b. 1915 at 4 Odessa Rd Harlesden. His mother was a Margaret Grieve but I have been unable to trace more. His father is not named anywhere. My father was fostered and went to school somewhere in this area. A few years ago I posted here for help in my research but nothing came of it.

I am now having another try as I have found that my father's foster mother could have been either a Mary Ann (b. 1862) or a Mabel (b. 1874) COUCHMAN both born in Lynsted, Kent. A Mabel Couchman was a witness at my parents' marriage in 1944. On the marriage certificate my father's first names are reversed to Arthur James Grieve.

I know it's a long-shot but does anyone have either of these COUCHMAN ladies in their family history files?

Please contact me at  Mail-me 

Thanks for reading this and fingers crossed!

Paddington Paddington to Vaudeville Theatre  

Vaudeville Theatre is on The Strand, the nearest Underground Station is Charing Cross, about 5 minutes' walk away. From Paddington take the Southbound Bakerloo Line direct to Charing Cross; it takes about 15 minutes. Trains run back from Charing Cross every 10 minutes until 00.29 (23.43 Sunday) so you've no need to worry about missing the last one.

Hi my maiden name is Housego. I lived in Honiton Rd Queens Park area. My grandad was Bill Housego, the boxer. Fred Housego (of Mastermind) is, I believe my dad's cousin. My grandparents lived in the upstairs of the house in Honiton Rd, we lived downstairs. My brother is called Ron and our two cousins, Billy and Barbara lived there. Unsure of our grandad's brothers names, but believe there were quite a few of them. I was born in 1948

Paddington Campbell Street  

Trying to trace where this was as my Great Grandfather lived at no 8. It was off Compton Street, now Maida Vale, but the whole area seems to have been demolished and replaced by flats that were built at 90 degrees across the former street.

Campbell Street Schools still exists, now Paddington Green Primary. It aws renamed in 1962 which suggests the redevelopment happened around then

Paddington James Arthur Grieve Born 18 Nov 1915  

My email address is  Mail-me 

My father James Arthur Grieve was born on 18 Nov 1915 and his birth was registered on 13 Dec 1915-sub district Harlesden-district Willesden. I have a copy of his birth certificate (entry no 263 register book 1) which certifies just his birth and gives no details of either parent.
My father died in 1998 without ever having found out who his parents were. My father thought that his father may have been a bank manager who died in the first world war and his mother may have been a mannequin who died after his birth.
My father was fostered by a friend of his mother and lived with that family in Edgware. He was known as Arthur. He went to church schools in the Notting Hill, Camden Town and Paddington Areas from 1920 - 1928.

If anyone can help me in my search to identify my grandparents, or my father's foster family, I would be eternally grateful.
